Potsdam, 22-25 August, 2011

The investigation of magnetic fields of stars and exoplanets is benefiting greatly from recent advances in high-resolution spectroscopy and polarimetry as well as high-performance computing. This conference will bring together active researchers involved in theoretical and observational studies of stellar and exoplanetary magnetic fields. In the tradition of Potsdam Thinkshops, the conference will offer an efficient exchange of latest results and enough room for discussions of future approaches in between the presentations. The meeting focuses in particular on the stimulation of collaborations among the participants.


The proceedings will be published as a special issue of Astronomische Nachrichten - Astronomical Notes (AN). The deadline for submitting your contribution to the proceedings is

             September 20, 2011

Please submit your article like a normal paper to the AN page and add "Thinkshop 7" in the field for messages to the editor.
