Two or three meetings will be selected by the Metcalf Travel Award Committee (MTAC) on the basis of brief proposals from Meeting Organizers. Proposals must be received by 28 February 2018. Proposals should be no more than two pages. Check the proposal guidelines for details.
Organizers of solar physics meetings taking place before 1 March, 2019 are encouraged to submit proposals to the MTAC (email@example.com). Meeting Organizers must indicate in their proposal how they plan to maximize the impact of their meeting on the field of solar physics.
Once selected, Meeting Organizers must seek out qualified applicants who can make a significant contribution to their meeting. Awards will go to one or more recent PhDs chosen on the basis of both meeting relevance and the Metcalf Lecturers' potential for future contributions to the field of solar physics. Metcalf Lecturers must be recognized in the meeting program. Grants are provided directly to the Metcalf Lecturers.
The amount available this year for all awards is expected to be about $10,000.
Metcalf Lecturers apply directly to the meeting organizers, not to the MTAC. Applicants must have been awarded their PhD after January 2014 or be a student within one year of completing their degree. Recipients must be a member of the SPD and not have received a Metcalf Travel Award in the past. Lecturers must present their work at the meeting, and after the meeting they must submit a one-page report describing their contribution.
For additional information about the program, please consult the program rules or contact the MTAC.

The University of Colorado (CU) Boulder invites applications for a three-year fix-term visiting faculty appointment in Solar Physics. Outstanding candidates in all areas of Solar Physics, including instrumentation, observations, theory and modeling, are encouraged to apply. The position is motivated by the relocation of the National Solar Observatory (NSO) headquarters to Boulder and will overlap with the start of operations of the NSO’s upcoming Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST). Given the anticipated polarimetric capabilities of DKIST, candidates with interest and experience in the interpretation of spectropolarimetric measurements, including spectropolarimetric inversions, the quantum mechanical underpinnings of the polarimetric signals, precision polarimetric measurement, plasma diagnostics, and the interpretation of scattering polarization to access the unexplored regime of weak magnetic fields in the cosmos, are of particular interest.
The construction of DKIST and the relocation of the NSO headquarters to Boulder provide a unique opportunity that will enable the successful candidate to pursue an innovative program of research and graduate and undergraduate education. The DKIST will achieve unprecedented high-resolution observations of solar photospheric, chromospheric and coronal magnetic fields, and CU Boulder and surrounding research institutions will provide a rich teaching and research environment for NSO activities. The appointment aims to extend the scientific impact of DKIST by bringing critical expertise into the university environment, engaging in NSO/CU research collaborations, mentoring students, and classroom teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Thus, the successful candidate will participate in the Hale Collaborative Graduate Education Program (COLLAGE) in solar and space physics, which uses telepresence technology to bring students and faculty from different campuses together for research and classroom learning. The candidate is also expected to engage broadly with the Boulder solar and space physics community, outlining their plans at the time of application.
We anticipate that the position may appeal to a range of scientists: early-career scientists eager to gain experience in research and teaching or later-career scientists interested in sharing their experiences with students in the academic environment. The appointment will thus range from the Assistant Professor level to the untenured Associate Professor level, depending on prior experience. Applicants should hold a PhD and have research and teaching experience commensurate with the appointment level.

We particularly encourage applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and short descriptions of their research and teaching interests and plans, and request that three letters of reference be submitted on their behalf by January 31, 2018. The teaching statement should include an assessment of which undergraduate and graduate courses in the Physics curriculum the candidate would be prepared and interested in teaching, ideas for specialized course work suitable to the telepresence environment of the COLLAGE program, and a summary of possible research projects that the candidate is prepared to mentor. These materials should be submitted electronically to: cu.taleo.net/careersection/2/moresearch.ftl?lang=en, posting #12117.
For more information please contact Prof. Dmitri Uzdensky, Search Committee Chair, Department of Physics, UCB-390, Univ. Colorado, Boulder, CO 80309; firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of the applications will begin on February 1, 2018, and continue until the position is filled.

We invite abstract submissions to our session at the 2018 European Geosciences Union General Assembly, “The Use of Observations and Models to Improve Space Weather Forecasting Capabilities in the Heliosphere”.
We can now confirm invited speakers include Emilia Kilpua (Helsinki) and Nina Dresing (Kiel).
The deadline for abstract submission is 13:00 CET on 2018 January 10. The conference will be held on 2018 April 8-13 in Vienna, Austria. Details of the conference and our session (ST 4.3), as well as others, can be found here: meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2018/session/27199
Severe space weather events can significantly impact human technology on the ground and in near-Earth space. Huge eruptions of plasma and magnetic field, known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs), often co-occur with solar flares and can cause problems for a wide variety of industries, such as satellites, radio communications and electricity networks. Solar flares and CMEs also accelerate solar energetic particles (SEPs), which in turn can harm electronics and be a significant radiation hazard to humans outside of the protective shield of the atmosphere. There is significant interest from end users in government and industry to improve the current forecasting methods of these events to mitigate against such risks. Spacecraft observations can be used to forecast when a CME might erupt, track the CME through the heliosphere, to predict the solar wind from another location in space, or to directly probe the different structures and their properties via in situ measurements. Alternatively, models can be developed to simulate solar magnetic fields, to predict where a CME might pass through the heliosphere, and to model its shape and its influence on the magnetosphere. We invite abstracts on both observations and modelling of space weather hazards, including CMEs, the solar wind, co-rotating interaction regions, solar flares, and SEPs.

Session description: Earth climate sciences involve complex coupling between the Sun, the atmosphere, landmasses, and the oceans. Natural forcings, such as volcanic eruptions and the variability of solar irradiance and particles can have large local effects on the Earth's dynamical system. One substantial uncertainty in our understanding of the Sun-Earth system is the absolute level of the Earth's radiation budget, in particular the precise quantification of the Earth's radiation imbalance. This session invites reports on recent observational results from the ISS/SOLAR instruments SOLSPEC and SolACES, SORCE, PICARD/PREMOS, NORSAT1/CLARA, CERES, ISS/TSIS, as well as future missions such as EarthCARE, CLARREO, and others. Results from global and regional climate modeling discussing the effects of past and possible future variations in solar variability, ozone, water vapor, clouds, and aerosols, anthropogenic forcing, and the Earth's radiation budget are welcome too.
Deadline for receipt of abstracts: 10 January 2018, 13:00 CET

You are cordially invited to a cross-disciplinary session “Cool Material in the Hot Solar Corona (Prominences & Coronal Rain) and Non-solar Analogs” at the 42nd COSPAR Scientific Assembly, hosted by Caltech/JPL in beautiful Pasadena, California, USA, 14-22 July, 2018. This session brings together the solar, astrophysical, space and laboratory plasma physics communities to explore these fascinating phenomena, with the celebration of the 60th anniversary of COSPAR’s inception (cospar2018.org). We have an excellent group of invited speakers and welcome interdisciplinary contributions from all the aforementioned disciplines. Please find below more details:
Session ID/Title: D2.2/E3.2, “Cool Material in the Hot Solar Corona (Prominences & Coronal Rain) and Non-solar Analogs” (www.cospar-assembly.org/admin/sessioninfo.php?session=714)
Duration: Two half-day sessions
Important Dates (www.cospar-assembly.org/): Feb 09, 2018 at 23:59 CET, Abstract (and financial support application) deadline Apr 27, 2018: Early registration fee deadline
Rationale: The solar corona is hot and tenuous. Yet, it hosts a variety of mysteriously cool and dense plasmas in two distinct forms - prominences and coronal rain. What they have in common is catastrophic radiative cooling of hot coronal plasma in thermal non-equilibrium states, forming the return flow of the chromosphere-corona mass cycle, which provides critical clues to the fundamental problem of coronal heating. What distinguishes them is the magnetic field that delineates these phenomena, e.g., twisted non-potential fields trapping prominences vs. simple loops draining coronal rain. Such cool material is not always quiescent as one might expect and can be associated with violent eruptions: some prominences form the cores of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) that produce space-weather disturbances, while some coronal rain occurs as the aftermath of solar flares due to the high density driven by intense heating and evaporation of the chromosphere. We invite contributions on a broad range of topics in three categories: (1) observational or modeling investigations of prominences and coronal rain, including their formation and dynamic evolution, magnetic and plasma environments, roles in the coronal circulation of mass and energy, relevant physical processes such as ion-neutral coupling and magnetic reconnection in partially ionized plasmas, diagnostic applications (e.g., coronal seismology), and space-weather consequences and predictive potential; (2) current or future observing capabilities and instrumentation (e.g., ALMA, DKIST) pertinent to addressing outstanding questions on these phenomena; (3) cross-disciplinary topics concerning physically similar processes or phenomena in laboratory plasmas, planetary magnetospheres, stellar atmospheres, or elsewhere in the universe, such as various plasma instabilities (e.g., Rayleigh-Taylor, Kelvin-Helmholtz) and thermal instability in molecular clouds and cluster of galaxies.

Abstract submission deadline: Friday, 19 Jan 2018
Energetic particles are an important topic of space plasma physics, encompassing solar physics, interplanetary physics and heliospheric physics. However, many details still remain unknown. Particle acceleration processes include magnetic reconnection, wave–particle interaction, collisionless shock wave, etc., and particle transport processes include adiabatic motion, parallel and perpendicular diffusions, random walk of magnetic field lines, wave–particle interaction, etc..
This session invites contributions that discuss space-borne and ground-based observations, and theory/modeling of the processes of energetic particle acceleration and transport at the Sun and in the heliosphere.
