Started in 1982, the International School/Symposium for Space Simulations (ISSS) has a history of over 40 years. Its program is particularly designed for the teaching of space plasma simulation techniques and sharing of state-of-the-art simulation advances and results with researchers in plasma physics.
This year's ISSS meeting will be jointly held with the International Workshop on the Interrelationship between Plasma Experiments in the Laboratory and in Space (IPELS). IPELS has a long history of fostering scientific interaction and collaboration between the solar physics and the laboratory experimental, theoretical and computational communities to address the fundamental plasma processes governing these complex environments.
ISSS-15+IPELS-16 will bring together the most recent observational results, theoretical advances and numerical simulations to address outstanding problems in space, as well as in laboratory experiments related to astrophysical plasmas. The conference programme will consist of invited and contributed talks. There will also be ample opportunity for poster discussions.
The School will precede the symposium and include lectures and tutorial/practical sessions on various types of plasma simulation models.
ISSS-15+IPELS-16 is open to all members of the scientific community, but participation by graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists in the ISSS school is particularly encouraged.
