Principal topics

The conference will cover the most critical aspects of cosmic magnetism. Topics include: magnetic fields in star-forming regions; the multi-scale field of the Sun and its interior; the Jupiter-Io system; heliospheric and interplanetary fields; Earth's magnetic field; surface fields of cool and hot stars and of degenerate objects; planetary-nebulae shaping by magnetic fields, jet and accretion-disk fields: from stars to AGNs and beyond; fields around stellar black holes and magnetars, Supernovae, the magnetic field of the galactic center; the galactic field (is there a magnetic web in our Milky Way?); fields of spiral galaxies; instrumentation and techniques for measuring magnetic fields across all wavelengths, from the ground and space, with emphasis on soon-to-come facilities (optical, IR, FIR/sub-mm, radio).
