1st European solar physics division (ESPD) summerschool:
Energisation and heating in the solar plasma

29 April - 3 May 2024
Dubrovnik, Croatia

In-person only


European solar physics division board is organizing a summerschool in 2024 as a pilot project to what could in future become a summerschool series. The theme of the school is Energisation and heating in the solar plasma, outlining the mechanisms which may operate to produce the solar wind, to heat the corona and to drive the transient events observed in the solar atmosphere, such as flares and coronal mass ejections.

Scientific organisers – ESPD board

The European Solar Physics Division (ESPD) of the European Physical Society (EPS) represents and provides a forum for European scientists, primarily, and any scientist, secondarily, interested in aspects of the physics of the Sun. The objective of the ESPD is the advancement of the study of the Sun, the dissemination of key results of solar physics research to the general public, and the promotion and coordination of such research with other areas and branches of the physical sciences. Every 3 years the board organizes European Solar Physics meeting (ESPM).
