Third Meeting of the Italian Solar and Heliospheric Community

The Italian Solar and Heliospheric Community (SoHe) periodically organizes national conferences: the last two conferences of the series were held in Catania in September 2013 and in Rome in May 2016, at the ASI headquarter. The next meeting will be host in Turin, on October 28-31, 2018.

The purpose of this conference is to provide a forum at the national level for the discussion of the main topics of solar and heliospheric physics, and space weather. The conference will strengthen existing collaborations and establish new ones, both in the context of projects in which part of the community is involved in (such as the European Solar Telescope – EST, Solar Orbiter, Bepi Colombo, Proba-3, CSES-Limadou space missions, etc.), and beyond.

The conference will support the participation of Ph.D. students and young researchers to facilitate their entry into the Italian community. The conference will have a total duration of two days and a half, during which ten oral talks will be held upon invitation, and 30 contribution talks will be given; about 30 posters will also be presented during the coffee breaks.

The event is locally organized by the INAF – Turin Astrophysical Observatory, the Physics Department of the University of Turin, and the Consorzio Interuniversitario per la Fisica Spaziale (CIFS).
