Forskningstorget

On September 20 and 21, Norway immersed itself into the Forskningstorget, their nation wide science fair. One of the main streets in Oslo, Karl Johan, hosted a myriad of different activities and booths, including one for the Rosseland Center for Solar Physics (RoCS), our EST partner in Norway.

Scientists had a wonderful time answering the many questions about the Sun... in six languages (the team in Oslo is truly international: they speak Hindi, Marathi, Spanish, Italian, English and - of course- Norwegian). There was also a motor model of the Solar System and video projections of solar images.

EST Science Meeting at Giardini Naxos (Italy)

EST Science Meeting in Giardini Naxos (Italy), June 11-15 2018

The EST Science Meeting will be held on June 11-15 2018 at Giardini Naxos, in Sicily (Italy). This upcoming EST Science Meeting aims at gathering scientists who wish to present their most recent theoretical and observational research in the field. The meeting will highlight the key science cases that will be addressed by the 4-metre class solar telescopes, and the synergies with both current and future ground-based and space-borne facilities. During the EST Science Meeting the main characteristics and science goals of the EST project will be presented to the scientific community to maximize the sharing of knowledge about the project and provide awareness of the potential telescope capabilities. It will also provide an opportunity to contribute to the definition of the telescope Science Requirements. A Science Requirements Document, describing how and why the unique capabilities of EST will provide answers to several key science questions, will be presented at the meeting. EST will be the heritage of the entire solar physics community and, for this reason, it is expected that the scientific community and in particular the EST Science Meeting participants, will contribute with science cases that will then be reflected in the Science Requirement Document.

EST Meeting in Austria

EST Meeting in Bairisch Kölldorf, Austria

The first Austria-EST Meeting will be held in Bairisch, Austria, from 9 to 11 of October, 2017.

The meeting is being organised by the PRE-EST team together with the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the University of Graz and the region of Bad Gleichenberg

The Current status of the EST project will be presented to the Austrian relevant stakeholders. Scientific aspects related to the EST like Numerical Simulation and Modelling, High Resolution observations, Data Analysis and Management for High-Resolution Solar Physics and the Solar Activity, will be also discussed during the meeting.

EST presentation in Rome

EST presentation in Rome

The first European presentation of EST took place on Thursday, October 5th, 2017, at 9:50am, at the prestigious location of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei (Pallazzina dell'Auditorio - Via della Lungara 230, Rome). The goal of this event is to underline the Italian involvement in the project both from the scientific and the industrial point of view. It will convene the European and Italian scientific communities involved in the project, the elite of Italian industry for astrophysics, the institutions and the public press. The presentation is supported by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC), S.R.S. Engineering, A.D.S. International and the Italian scientific institutions involved in EST: INAF (the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics), the University of Calabria, the University of Catania and the University of Rome "Tor Vergata"

Fifth Adaptive Optics for Extremely Large Telescopes Meeting

Fifth Adaptive Optics for Extremely Large Telescopes Meeting

The fifth Adaptive Optics for Extremely Large Telescopes (AO4ELT5) meeting will be taking place in June 2017 at the Hotel Botánico in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife. One of the major challenges that face the future extremely large aperture telescopes (ELT's) is adaptive optics, and the goal of the meeting is to gather specialists to review and discuss the latest developments on this field. The topics of the conference include ELT’s current design in terms of AO systems, related instruments and science goals, and also pathfinder projects planned or implemented on existing telescopes, including solar telescopes, which provide relevant results for the next ELT’s design phase. Special attention will be given to new developments in several areas, such as mirrors, laser technologies, wavefront sensing and control, and new post-processing tools required to increase the image quality and increase the scientific return of the instruments.
