The 2015 IRIS-4 workshop was held during May in Boulder, CO (USA). The Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) was launched in June 2013 and has been providing high resolution spectra and images from the photosphere, chromosphere, transition region and corona since July 2013.
This workshop had two main goals:
- facilitate use and analysis of IRIS-related data by the broader community through tutorials on IRIS-related topics such as the ins-and-outs of IRIS data analysis, optically thick radiative transfer, IRIS-related MHD simulations, and flare-related simulations (using Radyn);
- present and discuss IRIS-related science results (oral and poster contributions welcomed). There were invited talks on coupling between different regions in the atmosphere, chromospheric and transition region dynamics, chromospheric heating, coronal science with IRIS, and flares.
