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 this year are going to be bookended with a new "Director's Update" kickoff talk, this one being on Space Weather TREC by Tom Berger, and concluding with Fran Bagenal giving a special Keynote titled "NASA’s Juno Mission to Jupiter: Both Inside and out - What’s Going on at the Giant Planet?," with entertaining solar-Jovian connections. This Keynote is followed by our usual well-catered reception to encourage continued discussions. Both this reception and the extended breaks between sessions during the day 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 progress 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.

Important Dates:

  • Thursday, February 15, 2018: Registrations, titles, and abstracts due for contributed and invited talks/posters
  • Thursday, March 1, 2018: Registration due for all other non-presenting attendees

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.
