STFC Introductory Solar System Plasmas Summer School

24 – 27 August 2020

The 2020 annual STFC Introductory Solar System Plasmas Summer School is being hosted by the Solar & Stellar Physics Group in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Birmingham.

Because of COVID-19, this year’s Summer School will be delivered online.


The Summer School will provide young researchers with introductory lectures covering the key areas and latest results from across the discipline, with core content agreed by the UK Solar Physics (UKSP) and Magnetosphere, Ionosphere and Solar-Terrestrial (MIST) communities. Additional material and added-value content beyond the core subjects will this year focus on two areas: first, the new opportunities afforded by the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence, and advanced statistical analysis techniques; and second, a session on the “solar-stellar connection” and the importance of solar-system studies in a wider context (e.g. for the characterisation and study of exoplanets).
