13 May 2013: Abstract Submission Closed
We are pleased to announce that the online registration is open for the sixth Coronal Loops Workshop to be held in the Floréal Club, La Roche-en-Ardenne, Belgium, from the 25 to 27 of June 2013 and organized by the Solar-Terrestrial Centre of Excellence/Royal Observatory of Belgium.
The on-site registration will open on Monday afternoon 24
- Financial support request (with abstract): March 30th.
All abstracts due by April 30th.
- Extended deadline to submit abstract: May 12th
- Early registration: May 15th
AccomodationsRoom reservation form for Floréal Club is available here. The hotel will keep rooms blocked until May 10th, after this deadline the availability is not assured.
Other hotels are also available in the area.
The loops workshops are a series of highly focused meetings dealing with the observation and modeling of magnetically confined plasma in active regions. A few review talks will introduce these topics, highlighting recent progress and unresolved questions. Both observational
and theoretical aspects will be covered during each session by contributed talks.
The workshop's main goal is to encourage the discussion among the participants. For this reason the number of talks will be limited, while the poster sessions will be long enough to allow time to view and discuss the others participants' work. We encourage people to submit abstracts related to the topics listed below.
- Heating and high spatial resolution: what we have and what we really need.
- Hi-C and IRIS observations of coronal loops
- Modeling fine structure of coronal loops
- Diagnostic tools: DEMs/EM, Doppler-shifts, plasma, flows and lines profile, importance of energetic particles, filling factor
- What is their time dependence?
- Which of them that can be estimated with sufficient precision to provide unique signature of a heating process?
- Can we identify missing observables (feedback also from theory)?
- Connection of the different layers of the atmosphere.
- Modeling issues in TR.
- Moss and their connection with the chromosphere.
- Direct feeding of corona (e.g. Type 2 spicules).
- Diagnostic tools.
- Energy release in the corona: frequency and magnitude of events.
- Do heating timescales changes in different scenario?
- Is the heating location always the same?
- Where do we stand with dissipation of waves?
- Which are the observables predicted by models and which is their incertitude (due to assumptions, model limitations etc.)?
For your information, the instrument teams of the PROBA2 solar micro satellite hold their 6-monthly science meeting at the Royal Observatory in Brussels on June 24th Monday (http://proba2.oma.be/community/meetings/SWT7). If you are passing through Brussels on Monday, you might want to take the opportunity to visit the Royal Observatory and see the results of the PROBA2 mission. The schedule is adapted to allow people to reach La-Roche on the day.
