Multi-Wavelength Observations of Coronal Structure and Dynamics — Yohkoh 10th Anniversary Meeting – First Announcement

The purpose of this meeting is to review the many and varied advances in
our understanding of the dynamic solar atmosphere in the past 10 years of
observations by Yohkoh in collaboration with SoHO, TRACE, Ulysses, and soon
HESSI. The meeting will be held 17-20 September 2001 in Hawaii (venue
TBD). An important focus of the meeting will be the conceptual and
theoretical advances that coordinated multi-mission and ground based
observations of the Sun have helped us make in the last decade, and to
examine the role that the continued observations of Yohkoh will play within
the context of the programs of the current decade, such as HESSI, Solar-B,
STEREO, and the Solar Dynamics Observatory.

The meeting will consists of a series of invited review papers, contributed
papers, and posters, including a poster session on Education and Public
Outreach. There will be limited funds available for travel expenses of
young researchers. COSPAR has agreed in principle to sponsor the meeting
proceedings. A tentative schedule for the meeting is as follows:

Sunday 16 September: Welcome Reception, Registration

Monday 17 September: Active Sun I [Flares, Eruptions, Abundances]

Tuesday 18 September: Active Sun II [CME’s, Large Scale Phenomena, and
Space Weather]

Wednesday 19 September: (am) Active Region and Bright Point Studies

(pm) Tours and free time

Thursday 20 September: (am) Quiet Sun and Solar Wind,
