1. December 10 Deadline for Yohkoh 10 Meeting Registration
———————————————————-
From: Piet Martens

The postponed meeting will be held on January 21-24, 2002 at King
Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel, Kona. The Solar-B workshop will be
held directly thereafter, on January 25-26, same place.

Deadline for registration, hotel reservations at the low conference
rate, and abstract submission for posters is December 10th 2001.

Registration for Y10 and Solar-B, abstract submission, and hotel
information, are all available on-line at:

http://solar.physics.montana.edu/y10/

2. Announcement for the 21st National Solar Observatory/Sacramento Peak
Workshop on “Current Theoretical Models and Future High Resolution
Solar Observations: Preparing for ATST”
———————————————————————–
From: Alexei Pevtsov

The 21st National Solar Observatory/Sacramento Peak Workshop
“Current theoretical models and future high resolution solar observations:
preparing for ATST”
Sunspot, New Mexico, March 11-15, 2002

Overview:

The purpose of this workshop is to review the current state of the
theoretical and numerical modeling and high resolution observations of
several important processes in solar atmosphere and to develop
recommendations for future high resolution solar observations,
e.g. the Advanced Technology Solar Telescope (ATST) and future high
resolution space missions. Workshop discussion topics include origin
and evolution of magnetic field on the Sun, flux tubes as building
blocks of solar magnetism, chromospheric dynamics (including magnetic
reconnection and CMEs initiation), coronal heating, and strong
magnetic fields of active regions.

Deadlines:

The deadline for registration and abstract submission is
November 30, 2001. Late submissions will be accepted, however,
they will likely be scheduled as posters.

submitted contributions can be found at the workshop web site at

3. First Announcement and Call for Abstracts for the April 2002 EGS General
Assembly Session ST 18 “Theory and Simulation of Solar System Plasmas”
—————————————————————————
From: J. Buechner (buechner@linmpi.mpg.de)

Session ST 18 on “Theory and Simulation of Solar System Plasmas”
(Solar Terrestrial Science; co-sponsored by NP – Nonlinear Processes
in Geophysics)

Convener: J. Buechner (buechner@linmpi.mpg.de)
Co-Convener: G. Belmont (Gerard.Belmont@cetp.ipsl.fr)

This session combines reviews and original theoretical investigations
necessary to understand the plasma dynamics in the solar system. Since many
plasma and charged particle phenomena are common for different regions of
the solar system in magnetospheres, the sun, the solar corona, planets and
comets. The goal of the session is to bring together scientists
investigating related physical processes in different parts of the
heliosphere. Studies concerning the plasma dynamics in the solar system are
welcome, theoretical as well as numerical simulation results since
simulation is a mandatory tool as often as analytical treatments fail.
Since CLUSTER has revealed a wealth of new results in 2002 contributions are
especially encouraged dealing with the understanding of phenomena directly
verifiable by multi-spacecraft observations.

Notice the ABSTRACT DEADLINE 11 January 2002
