UPDATE: October 5, 2009
The SOHO 23 Meeting was held as scheduled, and included a broad range of interesting presentations regarding the characteristics of the current solar minimum and how they relate to recent and ancient history.
To help produce a permanent record of the scientific results that were presented at SOHO-23, the people who presented talks and posters are requested to refer to the Conference Proceedings information for details about how to submit papers. The deadline for contributions is Friday, December 18, 2009.
The SOHO Science Working Team has scheduled the twenty third in the series of successful SOHO workshops to focus on the topic of the unusual minimum of solar activity that has persisted in 2007, 2008 and 2009. SOHO-23 is scheduled for 21-25 September 2009, at the Asticou Inn in Northeast Harbor, Maine.
The SOHO-23 meeting will cover all aspects of solar and heliospheric science that deal with solar cycle variability and the evolution of solar activity on time scales from seconds to decades. The "new millennium solar minimum" of 2007-2009 has contained some distinct surprises, including a delayed onset of Solar Cycle 24, the absence of a classical quiescent equatorial streamer belt, and anomalously low heliospheric magnetic fields, densities, and temperatures. The scientific sessions for SOHO-23 will cover topics that include the solar dynamo, magnetic flux emergence and the "magnetic carpet," coronal and heliospheric magnetic fields, irradiance, coronal heating and solar wind acceleration, in-situ heliospheric plasma properties linked to the Sun, and the testing of solar cycle predictions.
In response to requests to submit more than one contributed abstract, the policy has been changed as follows. No more than two abstracts may be submitted as first author by each registered participant. In the case of more than one submission, the participant should clearly designate the priority (1st or 2nd) for each contributed abstract. Ultimately, the SOC will decide on the number of 2nd priority abstracts accepted, based in part on the available number of poster boards.
The SOHO-23 poster is now available on line.
