Meeting Agenda

'Dynamic Sun' is a newly proposed conference series, which provides a highly visible platform to the observers, theoreticians, numerical modellers and instrumentation experts in the fields of solar physics and space science to discuss cutting edge scientific challenges. The first Dynamic Sun meeting, which focused on MHD wave phenomena in the solar atmosphere, took place in 2016 in Varanasi, India and was highly successful with more than 120 attendees: http://ssg.group.shef.ac.uk/Conferences/India_2016/index.html.

The Dynamic Sun II meeting will follow up the success of the first. The focus of the Dynamic Sun II meeting will be to discuss in detail the recent achievements in understanding photospheric, chromospheric and coronal dynamics, energy transport between the lower and upper layers of solar interior and the solar atmosphere, dynamical processes in the confined solar transients. Special attention will be paid to the key results and goals of the current and proposed space and ground-based instruments. This meeting will be also useful for future scientific data interpretation from forthcoming new generation ground-based instruments, e.g., the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST, USA), European Solar Telescope (EST, Europe), new Indian facilities (MAST, upcoming 2m-NLST, Aditya-I) and more recently CHROMIS (located alongside CRISP at the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope), and will be able to significantly advance scientific understanding of our solar-terrestrial environment. Sun-driven magnetospheric dynamics will be covered in a special session.

We warmly welcome participation of internationally recognised experts in the field of solar physics, early career researchers and PhD students. We anticipate that Dynamic Sun II conference will help to establish a long-term relationships between research groups.
