Meeting Location and Dates

We are happy to announce the virtual Heliophysics 2050: Measurement Techniques and Technologies Workshop scheduled for February 23–25, 2022.

Purpose and Scope

Following on the science framework envisioned by the community during the Heliophysics 2050 Workshop held in May 2021, the objective of this workshop is to enable and facilitate a community discussion to determine what technological advancements are needed to enable the broad scientific vision outlined by the Heliophysics 2050 Workshop and to make transformative advancements in Heliophysics. The workshop will be a forum to organize and solicit community inputs that will inform the upcoming Solar and Space Physics Decadal Survey by giving the community a platform to:

  • Identify experimentation and technology gaps that must be closed in order to achieve the scientific vision laid out in the Heliophysics 2050 workshop
  • Identify essential and missing measurement technologies necessary for significant advancements in solar and space physics
  • Develop strategies to create an efficient pipeline of technological investment that could be used for long-term research

A vital element of this proposed workshop is to provide the Decadal Panel with:

  • Identification of shortfalls in current methodologies
  • Definition of instrument/sensor use cases that maximize the science return
  • Identification of technology areas requiring new investment

Abstract submission is not required to participate in discussions; however, participants who choose to submit posters are asked to list measurement and potential missions that can benefit from these new techniques. All abstracts and final presentations from the workshop will be shared on a website that is publicly accessible.
