Escudo de la República de Colombia Escudo de la República de Colombia



New Deadline: February 15th, 2016

We will be using an online submission system to collect all submissions to the Proceedings volume. You should register to use this online submission system, found HERE

All contributions must be submitted via this online site, and authors should take care to submit their contribution to the correct Symposium number- this will have to be selected by the author from a dropdown menu on submission.

The understanding of the fine structure and dynamics of the solar atmosphere requires a considerable coordinated effort of observers, theorists and experts in realistic numerical simulations. The proposed symposium is very timely and important. It will make an important step in the big international effort for our understanding of the solar atmosphere with large telescopes and detailed modelling. The Symposium will provide a forum for discussion of the recent advances, and a platform for developing new coordinated observing and theoretical programs. This Symposium will be of great interest also for the IAU Divisions studying stellar atmospheres, starspots, exoplanetary systems, and developing advanced observational techniques and theoretical models.


We are looking forward to seeing you in Cartagena de Indias !
