Scope and Goals

We are happy to invite you to participate in the 17th MHD Days hosted by the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Göttingen. As in previous years, the meeting aims at bringing together researchers working on general issues of magnetohydrodynamics, plasma physics, and related experiments.

Theoretical, numerical, and observational results from the above-mentioned fields all belong to the scope of the meeting.


Important dates

15th of August:       Registration and abstract submission opens

18th of October:       Last day for special hotel reservation

1st of November:     Abstract deadline

16th of November:   Registration deadline

30th of November:   Start of the meeting



A registration form and an abstract submission form will be available from the 15th of August on the website


A registration fee of maximum 100 EUR will be collected to cover some expenses during the meeting, i.e., lunches, coffee, and conference dinner.



We plan to start the meeting in the morning of Wednesday, November 30, and to finish on Friday, December 2, around noon. At the beginning of each day, there will be keynote talks on the solar dynamo, the role of turbulent effects in dynamo action, and global models of turbulent magneto-convection, followed by contributed talks. We also plan to reserve time to exchange as many news as possible. A detailed program will follow and be published on the website.


Keynote speakers: Maarit J. Käpylä, Karl-Heinz Rädler, Manfred Schüssler


Looking forward to seeing you in Göttingen!
