2016 International Summer School on Magnetic Reconnection in Space and Laboratory Plasmas
 
Magnetic reconnection is a fundamental plasma process in space, astrophysical, and laboratory plasmas. In the process of magnetic reconnection, magnetic energy is released and converted into plasma kinetic energy and heating, and plasmas as well as magnetic fluxes are transferred between different plasma regimes. Over the last decades, significant progresses have been achieved. However, there are still many issues, especially the microphysics in electron scale. Motivated by the new MMS mission concentrating on physics in the electron diffusion region and reconnection onset, a large number of original results on reconnection have been obtained. This workshop will focus on the new findings on magnetic reconnection from recent ESA Cluster, NASA Themis and MMS, and JAXA Geotail etc., and numerical simulations, and laboratory experiments.
 
The "International Summer School on Magnetic Reconnection in Space and Laboratory Plasmas" will be held in Kunming, China, from July 4 to July 10, 2016. We hope that you would be able to participate in the conference.
