EST Science Meeting, 11-15 June 2018

Posted By Tiago Pereira, Monday 28 May 2018

The EST Science Meeting will be held in Giardini Naxos (Me), Italy, on 11-15 June, 2018.


The European Solar Telescope (EST), is a 4-metre class aperture telescope designed to investigate our active Sun at very high spatial and temporal resolution and unprecedented polarimetric sensitivity. The project is promoted by the European Association for Solar Telescopes (EAST), whose aim is to ensure access of European solar astronomers to world-class high-resolution ground-based observing facilities and keep Europe at the forefront of solar physics.


The EST Science Meeting aims at gathering scientists who wish to present their most recent theoretical and observational research in the field. The meeting will highlight the key science cases that will be addressed by the 4-metre class solar telescopes, and the synergies with both current and future ground-based and space-borne facilities.


A Science Requirements Document, describing how and why the unique capabilities of EST will provide answers to several key science questions, will be presented at the Meeting. EST will be the heritage of the entire solar physics community and, for this reason, it is expected that the scientific community and in particular the EST Science Meeting participants, will contribute with science cases that will then be reflected in the final version of the Science Requirement Document.
