Turin to host ESPM in 2020

Posted By Tiago Pereira, Thursday 19 July 2018

After considering several high-quality applications, the ESPD board has decided to have the next European Solar Physics Meeting (ESPM-16) in the Italian city of Turin, in 2020. Congratulations to the organisers! More details will come after the Summer.

Held every three years, the ESPM is the largest meeting of solar physicists in Europe. We hope many of our colleagues can join us in Turin!

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.

SCOSTEP NSP Call for Feedback

Posted By Tiago Pereira, Friday 25 May 2018

The Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP) Bureau has established a committee to coordinate the design of SCOSTEP’s Next Scientific Program (NSP), which will cover the period from 2019 to 2022.  This committee has prepared a document describing the NSP, which is accessible at:!Akpx0yeihiGHoRrANb2ZkIa_f-Gm.

The central scientific topic of the NSP is the predictability of the Sun-Earth system at various time scales.

The NSP committee invites feedback from the scientific community, in the form of white papers, or short comments, or even verbally to one or more of the committee members, which are listed with their email addresses in the NSP document mentioned above. Please send your feedback until July 31, 2018!

To encourage an open and transparent discussion, all white papers will be made publicly viewable at:!Akpx0yeihiGHoRtUB6m2wPKVk8cc

In addition, there will be public opportunities to provide input at discussion sessions to be held at

  • the Workshop “Solar Influences on the Magnetosphere, Ionosphere and Atmosphere” in Primorsko (Bulgaria) on 4-8 June
  • the SCOSTEP 14th Quadrennial Solar-Terrestrial Physics Symposium in Toronto (Canada) on 9-13 July
  • the 42nd COSPAR General Assembly in Pasadena, California (USA) on 14-22 July
The NSP committee will use the feedback received to produce a second draft and issue another call for feedback in autumn. The goal of the committee is to have a final description of the NSP by the end of February 2019.

First call for nomination for 2018 ESPD prizes

Posted By Etienne Pariat, Tuesday 30 January 2018

In 2018 the ESPD will award two prizes, the PhD Thesis Prize and the Early Career Researcher (Postdoc) Prize. These prizes are based on nomination. The deadline for nomination is May 1st 2018.

The 2018 ESPD PhD Thesis Prize is awarded to a young doctor who defended its thesis in 2017. Information about the nomination package and submission process can be found in the ESPD prizes webpage.

The 2018 ESPD Early Career Prize is awarded to a young researcher who defended its PhD less than 4 years ago (with possible extension). Information about the nomination package and submission process can be found in the ESPD prizes webpage.

45th Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS 2018)

Posted By David Shaun Bloomfield, Tuesday 23 January 2018

Dear Colleagues,

Dear EPS Members,


On behalf of the Organizing & Programme Committees we are pleased to invite you to the  45th Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS 2018), which will be held in Prague in the Czech Republic,  July 2 – 6, 2018.


The conference is organized by the European Physical Society (EPS) Plasma Physics Division and will cover a broad range of plasma science spanning from nuclear fusion to low temperature plasmas, and astrophysical plasmas to laser plasma interactions.


The registration for the conference is now open at


Don´t miss the following important dates:

·        February 8 - 28, 2018 – Abstract submission deadline:

·        April 29, 2018 – Early bird registration & payment deadline


Accommodation & Sightseeing Tours

The accommodation and tours are provided by Active Travel Ltd. -

We recommend booking your hotel as soon as possible. The hotel capacities can be very limited due to other big events organized in Prague at the same time. You can find an overview of accommodation offerings at

Special Issue of Advances in Space Research: Solar Physics Advances from the Interior to the Heliosphere

Posted By Tiago Pereira, Friday 15 December 2017

Manuscripts are solicited for Solar Physics Advances from
the Interior to the Heliosphere
, a special topical issue of Advances
in Space Research (ASR).

Ongoing research in solar physics continuously advances and deepens our
understanding of basic physical processes operating in the solar
interior, atmosphere and wind, and contributes to uncovering the
solar-terrestrial relations and forecasting space weather. The main
objective of this special issue of Advances in Space Research (ASR)
is to highlight recent findings achieved in different branches of Solar
Physics. We welcome original and high-quality relevant manuscripts from
all scientists in the solar and heliospheric physics communities. All
submissions must be original papers that meet the quality and
peer-review standards of Advances in Space Research.

Topics to be considered include:

  1. Solar Interior, Dynamo, Large-Scale Flows and the Solar Cycle
  2. The Solar Atmosphere: Heating, Dynamics and Coupling
  3. Fundamental Plasma Processes in the Solar Atmosphere: Magnetic
    Reconnection, Waves, Emission, Particle Acceleration
  4. From Radio to Gamma Rays: Near-Sun Manifestations and Triggering of
    Solar Flares and Coronal Mass Ejections
  5. Solar Effects on the Heliosphere
Instructions for submission:
  1. Go the submission website.
  2. To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion
    into the special issue you are editing, it is important that authors
    select SI: Solar Physics Advances when they reach the “Article Type”
    step in the submission process.
  3. Deadline for manuscript submission: 30 April 2018 .

All manuscripts will be subject to a standard peer-review process,
including at least two independent reviewers. There are no page limits,
but the length of the paper should be appropriate to the scientific
material being presented. Manuscripts will be accepted on a
paper-by-paper basis and available on-line with a DOI a few days after
acceptance.  All articles will be typeset at no cost to the author,
while a fee will be charged to the authors for colour figures in print,
but not in the electronic version.  Accepted late papers due to
submission delays or protracted refereeing will appear individually in
regular issues of ASR.

On behalf of the Guest Editors Dr. Georgoulis, Dr. Kontar and the ASR.
Co-editor for Special Issues, Dr. Peggy Ann Shea.
