ISSI-BJ 2019 Fall Events

BEIJING, CHINA — With the year-end approaching, the implementation of scientific activities at ISSI-BJ has not slowed down but actually sped up its pace, as a consistent number of events were organized at our premises in Beijing, ranging from fora to workshops and International Team (IT) meetings. Following the principle of inter-disciplinarity pursued by ISSI-BJ, our activities encompassed a wide variety of disciplines, including cosmological studies, astronomy, heliophysics, and gamma-ray observations. 

Between September and November, a total of four fora were held, namely the “2nd Strategic Forum on Space Science”, which was organized jointly with the National Space Science Centre of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (NSSC, CAS); the forum on “Cross-scale measurements of space plasmas to explore magnetic reconnection”; the conference on “Science Objectives and Observation System for the International Meridian Circle”;  the forum on the “Exploration of Outer Heliosphere and nearby Interstellar Medium”. 

By the beginning of October, several new events of different nature lined up, including a workshop on “Oscillatory Processes in Solar and Stellar Coronae”, which attracted more than 40 experts in solar physics, as well as a series of International Team meetings. In fact, in the context of the 20 International Teams reviewed by ISSI/ISSI-BJ Science Committee and approved by ISSI-BJ Directorate between 2017 and 2019, five groups of experienced researchers and early-career scientists coming from more than 10 different countries gathered at ISSI-BJ to carry out their research projects. These included the investigation of near-space plasma dynamics and electromagnetic environment, space radioactive nuclei, coronal and plasma physics, as well as star formation and cosmological studies. 

On October 21-25, 2019, the members of the first research group worked on “The electromagnetic data validation and scientific application research based on CSES satellite” under the lead of Prof. Shen Xuhui (China), Prof. Gauthier Hulot (France), and Prof. Zhang Xuemin (China).

As the following week started, the International Team led by Prof. Jean-Claude Vial (France) and Prof. Chen Pengfei (China) used ISSI-BJ facilities to focus on “The eruption of solar filaments and the associated mass and energy transport”. The meeting was remotely attended also by Prof. Fan Yuhong, affiliated to the High Altitude Observatory, USA.

In the first week of November, ISSI-BJ welcomed the arrival of two International Teams, namely the group working on “Weak gravitational lensing studies from space missions” led by Prof. Fan Zuhui (China), as well as the international experts selected to study the “Radioactive nuclei in the cosmos and in the solar system” under Prof. Alexander Heger (Australia) and Prof. Maria Lugaro’s (Hungary) lead.

Finally, the events season at ISSI-BJ was concluded with the meeting of the International Team “Chemical abundances in the ISM: the litmus test of stellar IMF variations in galaxies across cosmic time” guided by Prof. Donatella Romano (Italy) and Prof. Zhang Zhiyu (China) from November 11 to November 15, 2019. During this week, the team members also agreed to be interviewed to share more details on their research project.

The results of each team’s observations and investigations will be published in scientific articles whose full list will be made available on each team’s website, and by the time of each research project’s conclusion, a final report will be produced and posted online.
