F-CHROMA Training School

We would like to announce the F-CHROMA Training Workshop
entitled: “Observations and modelling of solar flares”, which will be held
between October 31 and November 4, 2016 in Wroclaw (Poland).
University of Wroclaw will host this Training Workshop which is intended mainly
for PhD students and young researchers, to educate them on flare observations,
data analysis, diagnostics and the use of the main modelling codes.

The registration for this workshop is opened now. Please visit:
http://school2016.astro.uni.wroc.pl/ to register. The DEADLINE for registration
is September 26th, 2016. Selected candidates will be informed by
September 30th, 2016.

The workshop is organized by the F-CHROMA consortium and the lectures
and hands on sessions will be carried out by experienced scientists.
We will be able to offer full or partial financial support for accepted participants,
depending on numbers.

F-CHROMA is an European collaborative project led by the University of
Glasgow (UK), involving seven European research Institutes and Universities.
The goal of F-CHROMA is to substantially advance our understanding of the
physics of energy dissipation and radiation in the flaring solar atmosphere,
with a particular focus on the flares’ chromosphere. Additional information
about the project can be found at http://www.fchroma.org/ and at


For any further queries please email to: berlicki@astro.uni.wroc.pl
We encourage all young scientists to participate.

Best regards,

F-CHROMA is a project funded by the European Commission under Framework 7, that focusses on space-based and ground-based multi-mode, multi-wavelength study of solar flares. Solar flares are the most intense energy release events in the solar system, and – via their intense high energy radiation bursts and associated coronal mass ejections – a driving feature of space weather. Though solar flares have dramatic coronal manifestations, the bulk of the flare radiation comes from the denser lower atmosphere – or  chromosphere. This is the main location of flare energy dissipation and radiation, and the radiation can be analysed to provide many diagnostics of the energisation process.

The goals of F-CHROMA are to acquire, analyse and interpret ground- and space-based observational data of solar flares, test these against model predictions, and create an archive of solar flare observations and models, with major emphasis on their chromospheric aspects.
