Common Themes in Space, Astrophysical and Laboratory Plasmas:

Dynamo, Heat Transport and Collisionless Shocks

January 5-10, 2009 - UCLA Department of Physics and Astronomy

The Center for Multiscale Plasma Dynamics and The Center for Magnetic Self-Organization is sponsoring a winter school on "Common themes in space, astrophysical and laboratory plasmas: dynamo, heat transport, and collisionless shocks" at UCLA on January 5th - 10th, 2009. The school consists of six days of coordinated lectures, two days per topic, on the basic physics and outstanding questions associated with the three topics. While the primary aim of the course is to introduce the subject in a pedagogical manner the latest ideas and results will be presented and discussed. The school targets graduate students in their 2nd year and above, and post-docs.
