Partially Ionised Plasmas in Astrophysics — PIPA2019


The “Partially Ionised Plasmas in Astrophysics” meetings are a series of conferences whose core subject is the study of partial ionisation effects in any Astrophysical context.

PIPA2019, the 3rd meeting of the series, will be organised in Palma de Mallorca (Spain) in the period 03 – 07 June 2019. The meeting is hosted by the Solar Physics group of the University of the Balearic Islands, Spain.

The meeting aims to broaden and strengthen the collaboration of scientists working in partially ionised plasmas in space (e.g., solar chromosphere, interstellar medium, protostellar discs, planetary magnetospheres and ionospheres, etc.) and to develop common scientific interests that could enhance cross-collaborations between scientists working in this field.

The meeting will focus on (but is not limited to) the following topics:

  • Partially ionised plasmas in the solar atmosphere
  • Electrodynamics of planetary magnetospheres
  • Astrophysical partially ionised plasmas

The format of this edition will be similar to that of the previous ones: a 5-day informal-style meeting with significant time for discussions. The meeting will take place in the hotel Amic Miraflores, located 6.5 km from Palma de Mallorca’s airport and 8 km from downtown Palma.

The organisers have reached an agreement with the hotel Nautic****, which is a few meters from Can Pastilla beach and where accommodation at a very competitive price is offered to the conference participants. The hotel Nautic is just 6 minutes on foot from hotel Amic Miraflores.


This meeting is made possible thanks to the support of the University of the Balearic Islands and the European Space Agency.
