Meridional flow, differential rotation, solar and stellar activity

2007 June 24-29
Astrophysikalisches Institut Potsdam

The aim of the conference is to bring together scientists working in solar and stellar astronomy. Our current understanding of the magnetohydrodynamics of the solar and stellar interiors shall be discussed, from both a theoretical and an observational point of view. Meridional flow and its connection to the differential rotation are our main topics as well as magnetic stars, the stability of magnetic fields, and dynamo problems. Observational issues cover helio- and asteroseismology, indirect imaging, and stellar activity surveys.

Names in bold face: 20min + 10min discussion, others 10+5.
