Welcome to IRIS 10 Home page

The 10th IRIS meeting will be held from 4-8 November 2019 in Bangalore India, jointly hosted by Indian Institute of Astrophysics and CHRIST (Deemed to be University). The first day will be dedicated for tutorials to introduce IRIS data acquisition, reduction, and analysis with a special emphasis on coordinated observations with ground-based facilities.

The IRIS workshops promote the scientific achievements related to the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS). This mission combines high-resolution UV spectrographic imaging with advanced numerical modeling in order to gain insight on how the solar atmosphere is energized.

Aims & Themes
The main goal for this meeting is to enhance the collaborative efforts that use IRIS together with ground-based observatories, in the visible, infrared and radio. Special emphasis will be placed on collaboration with the upcoming facilities of DKIST, ADITYA L1, Solar Orbiter and other projects.

If you are a ground-based observer, you do not have to have worked on IRIS data before to participate in the meeting. In fact, the meeting will begin with a one-day tutorial that will introduce what data IRIS provides, how to access and process them, and how to extract information on the physics of the atmosphere. The tutorials also addressed the interests of ground-based observers, e.g. how to best coordinate their scientific efforts with IRIS observations. Another topic of discussion will be how ground-based observations could fill gaps in the scientific topics covered by IRIS, and how ground-based observations could best profit from the addition of IRIS data to enhance the scientific return. Limited travel support and free local accommodation is available for PhD students and early-career scientists.
The workshop will have the following scientific sessions:

  1. Fundamental plasma processes
  2. Chromospheric dynamics
  3. Thermal and magnetic coupling through the atmosphere
  4. Solar flares and coronal mass ejections
  5. Science with future facilities
