Jaša Čalogović visited the Institute of Physics, University of Graz from 5 to 8 July 2016, where he held a seminar "Cosmic rays and clouds: an important climate factor?" in which he presented his previous work, that connects the solar activity and the Earth's climate. During a visit to Graz further collaboration was arranged in order to analyze the impact of coronal holes on the Sun on changes in cosmic ray flux and geomagnetic field of the Earth.
Bojan Vršnak participated in a workshop on the curriculum for the facultative secondary-school courses of Geoinformatics, Botany of aromatic and therapeutic flora, and Solar astronomy, which was held in hotel Amfora at Hvar, July 5-6 2016, in the frame of the educational project HvaR&D. In the scope of the Solar astronomy, a collaboration between Hvar secondary school and Hvar Observatory is foreseen.
From June 27 to July 1, 2016 Bojan Vršnak attended the ISSI workshop: "The scientific foundations of space weather", held at the International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in Bern. In his invited talk "Solar eruptions" he presented basic physical processes and mechanisms governing the initiation and dynamics of Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) and the relationship between CMEs and solar flares.
Bojan Vršnak attended the Community of European Solar Radio Astronomers (CESRA) 2016 meeting: „Solar radio physics from the chromosphere to near Earth" that was held in Orléans / France, June 13-17, 2016. Together with Alexander Nindos (University of Ioannina), he was leading the Working Group 2 "CMEs, shock waves, and their radio diagnostics" and presented the report on the Working Group 2 activities at the Plenary Session on the last day of meeting.
On April 29, 2016, Bojan Vršnak presented a public lecture "Sun - Our Star" in Rečica ob Savinji, Slovenia, in the European Territorial Collaboration Slovenian/Croatian Youth Center. The lecture was attended by more than fifty listeners from the whole Savinja-valley region.
