Registration is now open for the Royal Astronomy Society Specialist Discussion Meeting devoted to solar prominences on Friday 21st February in the RAS premises in London, UK. Abstracts can be submitted at the meeting web page.
This specialist discussion meeting aims to review our current understanding of the life-cycle of solar prominences. How do they form? How do they interact with their environment, from the photosphere to the corona? How do they disappear? What is their contribution to Space Weather? Addressing these questions relies on interactions between experts in plasma physics, MHD, magnetic field modelling and observation, spectroscopy, radiation transfer, … This will be an excellent opportunity to discuss open issues in this area of interest to solar and stellar physicists, keeping in mind recent and future developments in observations and in modelling.
