Confronting numerical models of the solar chromosphere and corona with high resolution observations - a RoCS/MUSE/IRIS workshop

Our views of the solar chromosphere, transition region, and corona are rapidly changing with the advent of increasingly advanced numerical simulations of the dominant physical processes in the coupled solar atmosphere and the availability of high-resolution observations from both ground-based (e.g., SST, DKIST) and space-based telescopes (e.g., IRIS, Solar Orbiter/EUI). To gain a deeper understanding of which physical processes dominate the dynamics and heating in the solar atmosphere, and in order to further develop and advance our numerical models, it is key to confront the models with high-resolution observations by focusing on existing discrepancies between observed and synthetic spectra. This workshop is focused on such a critical comparison by providing an overview of the most recent observational results and models. The meeting will also feature discussions on the missing physics in current models and the most promising approaches to increase the realism of current simulations, with an eye towards future missions such as MUSE and EUVST, which will be launched later this decade.


Given the limited number of hotel rooms and conference space, participation is limited to participants that were selected by the SOC on the basis of their contributions. The main selection criterion was the relevance of the contribution to the goals of the workshop. All participants have been notified and at this time it is not possible to submit additional abstracts. The abstract submission is open for invited speakers only. The payment gateway is now active, please pay the fees by Dec 15, 2022.
