1.Workshop — Sunspot formation: theory, simulations and observations
 Dates 09 Mar 2015 → 13 Mar 2015
[ID=692853] Go to top of page
 LocationNordita, Stockholm, Sweden
 Organizer Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics (Nordita)
 Abstract Scientific recording of sunspots started with Galileo in 1609. Since Hale (1908) we know that sunspots are strong concentrations of magnetic field of up to 4000 gauss. They could be formed by subsurface magnetic flux tubes piercing the surface. Meanwhile, numerical simulations by many different groups suggest that strong magnetic fields could be generated in the bulk of the convection zone. This would mean that sufficiently strong magnetic fields may be generated not far from the surface. However, at the surface the magnetic field appears to be strongly concentrated into only a few isolated spots - in stark contrast to the more diffuse magnetic field beneath the surface. This is still a mystery.

 Abstract Magnetic reconnection is a fundamental multi­scale plasma process responsible for plasma transport, plasma heating and acceleration of energetic particles in many astrophysical environments, ranging from planetary magnetospheres and solar wind to solar flares, accretion disk corona, and other astrophysical plasmas. The major goal of this program is to increase the knowledge about the magnetic reconnection process in astrophysical plasma environments based on synergies between the studies of magnetic reconnection remotely, in situ, in numerical simulations and in laboratories.

 Dates 20 Jun 2016 → 23 Jun 2016
[ID=634747] Go to top of page
 LocationPrague, Czech Republic
 Abstract The Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology has a long tradition and is usually held biennially. This will be the 27th Symposium. It was originally founded for the presentation of results of the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences (IPP CAS) in 1967. Since 1969 it has gradually become a Czechoslovak forum in this branch and many famous foreign scientists have made presentations. Since 1993 it has been held in co-operation with the Department of Physics, Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University (FEE CTU) in Prague. Last symposia were granted the label European Physical Society Sponsored Conference. Since 2000 the SPPT participants had the possibility to offer their original papers based on the SPPT contributions for publication in various journals (Czechoslovak Journal of Physics, European Physical Journal D, Acta Technica), since 2012 Acta Polytechnica and Plasma Physics and Technology. The symposium is of the European importance. There will be about 150-200 participants.
 Topics Tokamaks and other magnetic confinement devices, Short lived plasmas (plasma focus, z-pinch, particle beam – plasma interaction, X-ray sources), Laser plasma, Non-equilibrium low temperature plasma, Thermal plasmas, Plasma in technology, biology and medicine, Fundamental plasma physics, Plasma theory and simulation
