Dynamos in planets in stars - similarities and differences


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

Workshop theme:

This one-week workshop will bring together theoreticians, modellers, and observers with interests in planetary and stellar magnetic fields. We invite contributions on all aspects of these fields, from applied mathematicians, stellar, solar and planetary scientists engaged in theory or observations and experts from neighbouring fields. 

The latest state of observational evidence for the spatial structure and temporal evolution of magnetic fields of different solar-system planets, possibly of exoplanets, and of different types of stars will be presented. In particular constraints for dynamo theories posed by the new magnetic observations of the Juno and Cassini missions, and the growing data base on the magnetic properties of stars, will be discussed. Similarities and differences between dynamos in planets and stars will be outlined and discussed.

This initial one-week workshop will set the stage for the first theme of the programme and aims to foster in-depth interaction between theorists and modellers on the one side and observers of magnetic fields and other relevant properties of stars and planets on the other.
