This meeting is organized by Kwasan and Hida Observatories of Kyoto University, and sponsored by a Grant-in-Aid for the 21st Century COE "Center for Diversity and Universality in Physics", Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics of Kyoto University, and Solar Terrestrial Environment Laboratory of Nagoya University.
The Solar-B satellite will be launched next year by ISAS/JAXA as an international collaboration project with USA (NASA), UK (PPARC), and ESA. The main purpose of Solar-B is to clarify the coronal heating mechanism and basic magnetohydrodynamic processes occurring in the solar atmosphere such as magnetic reconnection. For this purpose, Solar-B will carry three instruments, 1) SOT (solar optical telescope), enabling the first space observations of vector magnetic field of the Sun at unprecedentedly high spatial and temporal resolution, 2) XRT (X-ray telescope), which observes the full Sun soft X-ray images at the highest spatial resolution in the soft X-ray wavelength range, and 3) EIS (EUV imaging spectrometer), which gives us Doppler velocity data for coronal plasma flows at the highest spatial resolution. We are now about one year before the launch and it is therefore timely to discuss basic scientific objectives, possible observing proposals and programs of the Solar-B mission.
November is the highest time for tourists to visit Kyoto during the
year. It will be difficult to reserve a hotel not only just prior to
the meeting but also even now. So we searched for hotels still
available in November and have made block reservations of rooms at some
hotels which are located within 30-40 min from the meeting place, as
indicated in the 2nd circular.
Those who have not yet reserved
hotel are encouraged to send the hotel reservation form in the 2nd
circular to the LOC. Please remember to take a copy of your
passport when you check-in to the hotel. We emphasize that the hotel
reservation is on a first-come-first-served basis. The hotel location
map appear on the following. For details, please read the 2nd circular.
