Solar-Stellar Magnetism: Past, Present and Future

18 February, 2018
B.M. Birla Auditorium, Jaipur, India


This one day workshop is being organized in India on the occasion of Arnab Rai Choudhuri's 60th year to discuss outstanding challenges and future prospects in our understanding of the origin of solar-stellar magnetism - a topic in which Choudhuri has made significant contributions. The scientific sessions will be structured around invited discourses and a panel discussion. The workshop will precede (by one day) the International Astronomical Union Symposium 340 (Long-Term Datasets for the Understanding of Solar and Stellar Magnetic Cycles) and will be held in the same venue.
