Hinode-14 / IRIS-11 Joint Science Meeting

The Hinode-14 / IRIS-11 meeting WILL take place during the week of October 25-28, 2021.

The meeting will be either HYBRID or FULLY VIRTUAL.

The final format will be confirmed by August 20, 2021.

The Abstract Submission is open and ends on August 15, 2021.


The Meeting Registration will open after the format is confirmed.

These are the two formats considered:

HYBRID (preferred option)

The meeting will be HYBRID with both in-person and virtual participation IF institutional travel restrictions are lifted by August 20, 2021, and (at the very least) domestic participants are allowed to travel to Washington, D.C. Currently, many institutions do not allow travel to conferences and meetings. The in-person component of the meeting will take place at the Arlington Campus of George Mason University, Arlington, Virginia, as originally planned. The campus is just across the river to the National Mall, and only a few metro/subway stops away from the White House and other landmarks of the United States Capital. Remote participants will be able to attend the meeting through a virtual platform, and will be able to contribute with oral or poster presentations. Live-in-person, live-remote and pre-recorded talks are being considered by the LOC and SOC. All presentations will be recorded and made available immediately. Details will become available when the meeting format is confirmed.



FULLY VIRTUAL (back-up plan)

The meeting will be fully virtual IF institutional travel restrictions are NOT lifted by August 20, 2021. Remote participants will be able to attend the meeting through a virtual platform, and will be able to contribute with oral or poster presentations. Live-in-person, live-remote and pre-recorded talks are being considered by the LOC and SOC. All presentations will be recorded and made available immediately. Details will become available when the meeting format is confirmed.


Please, DO NOT make your flight plans until the LOC confirms the final format of the meeting. Even if restrictions have been lifted for you, the LOC will need to assess how the restrictions apply to the overall community. An attendance of ~50 people is needed to make the in-person component feasible.

The meeting will highlight the most recent achievements of the IRIS and Hinode missions together with the latest research on topics related to the missions’ goals. This year we will also put special emphasis on the synergies with the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST), that obtained its first solar images in 2020, and will have its own session, speakers and tutorials. We encourage participants to consider submissions on these topics, including coordination with other ground facilities and space missions such as Parker Solar Probe, Solar Orbiter and SDO.

If the meeting is HYBRID, we will have a limited number of travel grants available to help young students and early-career researchers. Please, visit the Travel Support section for more information.

Details about other deadlines, invited speakers and additional information will appear soon on the full website and in subsequent announcements.
