Loops Workshops

The Coronal Loops Workshops are a series of highly focused biennial meetings, organised since 2002. They deal with the observation and modelling of magnetically confined solar plasma in solar active regions. The general objective is to understand the physical processes that create and heat the magnetically dominated corona in the form of EUV and X-ray loop structures.

This is the 11th workshop of a well establised series. Past workshops were held in Orsay (2002), Palermo (2004), Santorini (2007), Firenze (2009), Palma de Mallorca (2011), La Roche-en-Ardenne (2013), Cambridge (2015), Palermo (2017), St Andrews (2019), and Paris (2022).

The science program will consist of invited reviews, contributed talks, and posters covering both observational and theoretical aspects. The workshop's main goal is to encourage the discussion among the participants. In addition to discussions of recent progress in community driven topics that will be based on the abstracts submitted, this meeting will include sessions on three specific themes: coronal cooling, reconciling 1D vs 3D models, and high resolution observations. 

The confirmed invited speakers are: Lakshmi Pradeep Chitta (Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research), Petra Kohutova (Rosseland Center for Solar Physics), Paolo Pagano (Università di Palermo), Elena Petrova (KU Leuven), Jeffrey Reep (University of Hawaii), and Seray Sahin (University of Northumbria). 

The abstract submission (for talks and posters) and pre-registration will open on the 1st of March. We encourage graduate students and early-career postdocs to participate and present their research work. While abstracts are not required for participation, preference will be given to those who submit abstracts, in order to limit the number of participants to 75.
