May 25, 2015. The 3rd SOLARNET Workshop "Polarization in the Sun, the Solar System, and Beyond" started in Granada, Spain.

The 3rd SOLARNET Workshop “Polarization in the Sun, the Solar System, and Beyond” has been started today in Granada (Spain). This four days even (25-28 May 2015) is organized by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC) under the auspices of SOLARNET.

The goal of this workshop is to present the latest advances in astronomical polarimetry and spectropolarimetry, with a focus on the sun, solar system bodies, stars, and exoplanets, and also to bring together the different communities and fostering collaborations between them.

In order to provide a detailed account of the latest developments in these areas -including instrumentation, measurement techniques, data analysis and interpretation- the following sessions have been scheduled:    Instrumentation (ground, space, laboratory)

  •     Diagnostics and Interpretation
  •     Solar Photosphere
  •     Solar Chromosphere, Transition Region, and Corona
  •     Polarization in the Solar System and Exoplanetary Systems
  •     Stellar Magnetic Fields

The workshop is being carried out right after the 3rd SOLARNET School on “Solar Magnetic Fields: Modeling and Measuring Techniques," which also took place the last week in Granada, Spain.
