Conference/Workshop objectives

Current high-resolution ground- and space-based observations have provided an unprecedented new insight into the physical processes in the solar atmosphere. Highly localized waves, oscillations and wide range of dynamic processes from instabilities and jets have been observed at the best available spectral, temporal and spatial resolutions. At the same time, our theoretical understanding -whether numerical or analytical- has also advanced thanks to the latest mathematical techniques and numerical tools developed and applied to describing the dynamics of the solar atmosphere.

The aim of this School is to update the ESRs (i.e. early-stage researchers, e.g. PhD students and PDRAs) on the latest advances made in observations, theory and numerical techniques of solar atmospheric dynamics. With the availability yielded by new instrument suits both in space and on the ground, solar theory will be more challenging to model these dynamical processes for exploring solar magnetism from the photosphere to the low corona at yet unforeseen small spatial, temporal and spectral scales.

The aim will be achieved by the objectives of delivering the attendees: i) an update on the state-of-the-art of solar atmospheric dynamics research and ii) a forum where their results can be discussed in an informal but constructive environment.

The School is intended to have an introduction to solar theory (both analytical and numerical) and observations of the relevant physics of small-scale solar atmospheric dynamics.

During the School, on-site practice of taking daily solar synoptic data and their analysis will also be carried out at the Gyula Bay Zoltán Solar Observatory (GSO) with their Solar Activity Magnetic Monitor (SAMM) magneto-optical filter (MOF) based facility in order to offer the students a direct and real experience of working with solar data.

The anticipated number of participants for these training schools is around 25 participants due to the limited logistics. It is expected that all participating ESRs will also deliver a short presentation on their research results. Preference for selection of ESRs will be given to those who express willingness to deliver a talk. Partial funding will be provided to support organizational costs and travel expenses (including accommodation) for ESRs and invited speakers.
