Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Magnetic Fields in the Universe: from Laboratory and Stars to the Primordial Structures is a peer reviewed conference by Rencontres du Vietnam (official partner of UNESCO).

Most of the baryonic matter in the Universe is composed of ionized or partially ionized gas permeated by magnetic fields (i.e. plasma state). Magnetic fields therefore play a key role in its evolution.

This conference will be the 7th edition of the series Magnetic Fields in the Universe: from Laboratory and Stars to the Primordial Structures that, since 2004, have brought together experts involved in Astrophysical, Space and Laboratory Plasmas and young researchers.

The goal of this series is to provide ample exchange of the new results and recent progress in these distinct but closely related research areas and provide the new generation with a broad perspective of the field. It has allowed cross-pollination of disciplines.

These are not Thunderbolts Electric Universe, Society for Interdisciplinary Studies or plasma cosmology conferences. There are MHD plasmas, Gravity and academic interpretations and measurements.

The topics addressed cover magnetic fields in a broad variety of processes and environments: from plasma laboratory to the solar corona, the heliosphere, the interstellar medium, external galaxies, clusters of galaxies, the intergalactic medium and the primordial Universe. The perspectives given to the audience on each of these topics are theoretical and/or numerical, as well as observational.

Magnetic fields are notoriously difficult to observe in space because their measurements involve polarized signals that are weak in general and polluted by instrumental effects. Only now do we enter a new era when observations are able to challenge theory. This is so thanks to new facilities in several frequency domains.

Magnetic Fields in the Universe conference and investigations

The list of speakers will be discussing:
Observations of magnetic fields in star-forming regions, in molecular clouds, in protostellar disks, in Compact Sources and CR Acceleration, in Intergalactic Medium and Clusters of Galaxies.

Although from an accepted science view of space and dusty plasmas, it would be awesome to be there and learn from these lectures. Or to have attended previous Rencontres du Vietnam meetings in the beach resort of Quy Nhon. These have been hosted at the International Center for Interdisciplinary Science and Education (ICISE).
