Dear Colleague,

we cordially invite you to participate in the first
STEREO workshop

“The 3-D Sun and Inner Heliosphere: The STEREO View”

to be held March 18 – 20, 2002, in the historical
Carree des Sciences in Paris.

The workshop will focus on the following goals:

– To explore the combined use of in situ, remote sensing
and radio observations, together with modeling, to develop
more comprehensive models of CME propagation and particle
acceleration

– To share techniques and experiences which are relevant
to STEREO data analysis and 3D reconstruction

– To focus on the use of STEREO data sets (as opposed to
single spacecraft and/or single instrument data sets) for
developing a new scientific understanding

– To develop collaborations which will lead to improved
analysis methods for the interpretation of STEREO data sets.

The workshop will be organized into six topical sessions:

– STEREO Mission and Overview

– Lessons Learned From Multi-Spacecraft Missions

– The 3-d Structure of the Inner Heliosphere and its Relation to 3-d
Corona

– CMEs in the Heliosphere: Using Remote Sensing, in Situ Data, and Models

– 3-d Shock Propagation and Particle Acceleration: Observations and
Modeling

– 3-d Reconstruction for Chromospheric and Coronal Observations

Each oral session will be roughly half invited reviews and half
contributed talks. Contributed talks will be selected according to their
relevance to the STEREO mission and the workshop goals.

Strong emphasis is being put on time for discussion during the
sessions. In addition, there will be space for spontaneous working groups
in the poster area and in separate rooms.

Each day, there will be a working poster session focused on the topics of
the day’s oral sessions. Tables and white boards will be available in the
poster area for extended discussions and spontaneous “mini working
groups”.

The conference fee will amount to approximately 150.- Euros and will
include lunches in the on-site restaurant, the abstract booklet, coffee,
etc., and a Conference Apero at the Observatoire de Paris.

A limited amount of funds is available to support participants not funded
by STEREO.

Deadlines:

Third circular: November/December, 2001

Abstract submission: January 15, 2002

Registration (at reduced fee): December 31, 2001

Housing: January 31, 2002
