Boulder Solar Day provides an overview of solar research being accomplished at local institutes. The one-day meeting offers a relaxed setting that encourages informal interactions with both local and visiting researchers. The day's oral presentations, concluding with a special Keynote by Doug Duncan (Director of Fiske Planetarium, CU) titled “Preparing Yourself and the Public for the Aug. 2017 Total Eclipse; with some Comments on the 1878 Solar Eclipse,” are followed by a well-catered reception to encourage continued discussions. Both this and the previous extended breaks between sessions allow lengthy poster viewing.

This informal 1-day meeting brings together researchers from HAO, LASP, NOAA, NSO, NWRA, and SwRI, as well as visitors from other solar institutes to discuss current work on solar instrumentation, observations, and models.

Boulder Solar Day will once again be hosted by HAO in their Center Green Building 1 with sponsorship courtesy of HAO, LASP, NSO, NWRA, and SwRI. Participation is free and open to anyone interested in local solar research. As a courtesy to the organizers and to allow planning for space and refreshments, please register here [Registration].

Boulder Solar Alliance (BSA): Boulder is fortunate to have one of the greatest concentrations of solar physics institutes in the world. To encourage communication among researchers from these institutes, we have formed the BSA with representation from CU/JILA, CU/LASP, NCAR/HAO, NSO, NOAA/NESDIS/NCEI, NOAA/NWS/SWPC, NWRA, and SwRI.
