First Joint Solar Probe Plus-Solar Orbiter Workshop 2015

The first joint Solar Probe Plus - Solar Orbiter Workshop will take place in Italy in the outskirts of Florence at the Villa "La Ferdinanda", Artimino, Italy, from September 2nd to 4th, 2015. The aim of the joint workshop is to gather the Heliophysics community to discuss the exciting new science opportunities that the Solar Orbiter (SO) and Solar Probe Plus (SPP) missions will provide and examine the important synergies between the two missions, leading to a strong collaboration for major advances in our understanding of the origins of the Heliosphere.

The Workshop will address how the joint exploration of the corona and inner heliosphere will lead to advances in our understanding of coronal heating and solar wind acceleration, the magnetic and plasma structure of the heliosphere, and the acceleration of energetic particles at shocks and flares. The workshop will inspire research that will make use of SO and SPP observations within the context of the NASA Heliophysics Observatory System and identify key areas for preparatory research. Synergistic observations from other ground based and space based assets will also be addressed.
