The Importance of Plasma Processes in Planetary Physics and Astrophysics
|1.||Laboratory plasmas of relevance to space physics.|
|2.||Auroral physics : micro- and meso-scale plasma physics, plasma acceleration.|
|3.||Terrestrial magnetosphere physics : solar plasma forcing, energy and momentum transfer processes.|
|4.||Planetary magnetospheres : internal and external plasma forcing, plasma acceleration and escape.|
|5.||Solar and heliospheric plasma physics : plasma acceleration and expansion, solar variability and evolution.|
|6.||Astrophysical plasmas : from the tenuous magnetized plasmas of interstellar space to the dense highly magnetized plasmas and explosive large-scale processes in extreme environments.|
Each review will provide a survey spanning the above domains of space research, in a way potentially relevant to a broader space science community.
We also solicit scientists and graduate students to present their views on the above subjects in the form of contributed talks and posters.
