The Space Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences welcomes you to the 8th International Workshop on Planetary, Solar and Heliospheric Radio Emissions (PRE VIII). The meeting will take place in Seggauberg, about 30 km south of Graz, Austria, from October 25 to 27, 2016. PRE VIII is the continuation of the series of international workshops that took place in 1984, 1987, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2005, and 2010.

Aims & Scope:

Key topics of our workshop are the recent developments in the study of non-thermal radio emissions from the Sun, the five radio planets, the heliosphere, and potential radio emissions from exoplanets. Special emphasis is put on current missions like Cassini and Juno, but also new findings from data of older missions like Stereo, Voyager, Galileo, Wind or Ulysses are welcome. Studies of terrestrial radio emission data from missions like MMS, Themis, Van Allen Probes, Cluster or Demeter will be another important topic. In addition to space-based observations, new developments in ground-based radio telescope will be matters of discussion, that should lead to a better coordination of ground- and space-based observations. Presentations should focus on physical properties of radio emissions like rotational modulation, fine structures in dynamic spectra, polarization as well as source direction, and theoretical modeling and simulation of plasma and magnetic processes leading to their generation. Key question for future missions like Solar Orbiter or JUICE (Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer) can also be addressed. Oral as well as poster presentations are welcome.

This page contains further information about the workshop, and it will be updated as the news become available.

Registration and abstract submission for PRE VIII is now open until September 05, 2016!
