Modeling of astrophysics plasmas in various environment is a relatively new and rapidly growing field of research. The approach is to treat dynamical and magnetic phenomena in astrophysics plasmas consists of using the approximation of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) at all levels from the prospective of multibody interaction to fluid dynamics. The main objective of the workshop is to bring together different groups working in this field of research. We plan to bring together scientists from different research fields, including Solar, planetary and galactic communities, to discuss the common approaches to the problem and to establish new collaborations.



The primary goal of the workshop is to exchange ideas, to establish cooperation links and to develop a joint strategic working plan for further tackling of problems of dynamics and energetics of astrophysical plasmas. The workshop specially aims at stimulating scientific discussions and collaborations between the different groups. The number of participants is limited to 30–40. The meeting will consist of oral presentations by invited lecturers and actual presentation of computational simulations. The majority of the time will be devoted to the actual workshop, stimulating the participants to work together in small groups on specific topics. Each group is expected to complete one of small project relating to their research interests. There will be no registration fee.


Target Audiences

Advance undergraduates, graduates students, post-docs and young researchers who are either already working or interested in the related fields of astrophysics , space plasma and computational techniques for MHD simulations. Due to the practical nature of the workshop and limited funding, the number of participants will be limited to 30-35 persons. The successful applicants will be notified of the organizer decisions approximately one week after the registration deadline.
