The International School of Space Science of the Consorzio Interuniversitario per la Fisica Spaziale organizes a Course on “Radiation Belt Dynamics and Remote Sensing of the Earth’s Plasmasphere”, to be held in L’Aquila, Italy, 26-30 September, 2022 directed by Prof. János Lichtenberger (Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary), Prof. G. Reeves (Los Alamos
National Laboratory, Los Alamos, USA) and Prof. Massimo Vellante (University of L’Aquila, L’Aquila, Italy).
The course is designed for PhD students and young post-doctoral researchers. It will offer an overview of the current knowledge of a key Space Weather region, the radiation belts, and in particular on its related energization and loss processes due to wave-particle interactions, and particle precipitation into the atmosphere. These processes are strongly governed by the properties of the plasmasphere (the outward extension of the ionosphere) which is partially overlapping with the radiation belts. Part of the course will be then devoted to present, both from
a theoretical and observational point of view, as well as through modelling, the basic plasmasphere dynamics, including its coupling with the ionosphere.
Applications are due before May 22, 2022
The International School of Space Science of the Consorzio Interuniversitario per la Fisica Spaziale organizes a Course on “The different spatio-temporal scales of the solar magnetism”, to be held in L’Aquila, Italy, 11-15 April, 2022 directed by Prof. F. Zuccarello (Università di Catania, Italy) and Prof. L.Bellot Rubio (Instituto de Astrofisica de Andalucía, IAA-CSIC, Spain).
The School is aimed at providing an in-depth overview of the magnetic phenomena occurring in our star, as well as at presenting some of the most recent tools that can allow to directly tackle the analysis of the problems that are still present in the comprehension of solar magnetic phenomena, through hands-on sessions.
The main topics that will be examined are: the global magnetic field of the Sun and the solar cycle; the small-scale magnetic field: emergence and evolution; the global and local dynamo; the sunspots: processes of formation and evolution and the fine-structure of umbrae and penumbrae; magnetic field instabilities, eruptive events and their impact on Space Weather.
Applications are due before November 21, 2021.
The call for application is open for the SOLARNET school “A holistic view of the solar atmosphere – combining space and ground-based observations”
Dates, venue: March 23-27, 2020 at UCL – Mullard Space Science Laboratory (Dorking, UK)
The school “A holistic view of the solar atmosphere – combining space and ground-based observations” has for a goal to provide an introduction to the approaches and analysis methods needed to successfully combine space and ground-based observations of the solar atmosphere from the photosphere to the corona, in order to a complete view of the underlying physical processes at work in a range of different solar phenomena.
To apply for the SOLARNET school, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 25, 2020
- a one-page CV
- a brief statement of interest (max. 1/2 page) indicating your field of research and why you want to participate in the school.

The International School of Space Science of the Consorzio Interuniversitario per la Fisica Spaziale organizes a Course on “Dynamical Systems and Machine Learning Approaches to Sun-Earth Relations”, to be held in L’Aquila, Italy, 15-19 June 2020, directed by G. Consolini, D. Del Moro.
The course is devoted to young researchers and PhD students and will provide an introduction and an overview of the recent theoretical, numerical and data analysis advances in the framework of dynamical systems and machine learning approaches to the characterisation and the modelling of Sun-Earth’s relations.
The dynamics of the Sun strongly affects the interplanetary and circumterrestrial environment, causing phenomena that have a great impact on the anthropic activities. In the past, the response of the Earth’s magnetosphere-ionosphere system to the changes of the solar wind and interplanetary conditions due to the solar activity has been widely investigated showing that the dynamics of the coupled solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere (SMI) system resembles that of a complex system displaying scale invariant features, turbulence and a near-criticality behaviour. On the other hand, in the framework of dynamical systems, several new tools and methods have been proposed to quantify and characterise the dynamical complexity and its role in nonlinear out-of-equilibrium dynamical systems.
Furthermore, the modelling of the complex dynamics of the SMI system, as such as some features of the solar activity has been shown to benefit from the recent advances in the field of machine learning techniques.
The course will consist in theoretical lectures and laboratory exercitations.
Applications are due before February 29, 2020.

SOLARNET is pleased to announce the call for its Summer School Programme ‘Solar spectropolarimetry: From virtual to real observations’ to be held between September 9-14, 2019, at Università della Svizzera italiana, in Lugano, Switzerland
Application deadline: June 30, 2019
Dear Colleagues,We want to draw your attention towards the *SOLARNET Summer School for Solar Observers – A week above the cloudss* which will be held at the Observatorio del Teide in August 5-9, 2019.Our purpose is to instruct students and young postdocs in the capabilities and operation of the German solar facilities at the observatory, by giving them the opportunity to
– run real observations at GREGOR, the largest solar telescope in Europe
– calibrate data by learning how to use the existing data pipelines, Python and deep learning techniques
– learn how to complement ground-based observations with space-based observations
– experience the observers’ life up the mountain for a weekthrough different lectures and experimental activities (programme in SOLARNET webpage available soon).
Due to restrictions in accommodation, the number of participants is limited to 12.To register, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief statement of interest indicating your field of research and why you want to participate in the school.Registration deadline: June 15, 2019.
