We are glad to announce the third international conference on hot topics of magnetospheric physics, which will be held in October 2013, in the region of Torres del Paine, close to the city of Punta Arenas, Chile.

Conference web site
look at ISWI Newsleter Vol.5 No.80

The main objective of the conference is the discussion of some of the outstanding questions in magnetospheric physics and to emphasize the system aspects of its behavior.

Topics to be considered:

1. Physics of solar-wind/magnetosphere coupling.

2. Energy and mass flow into and through the magnetosphere.

3. Timescales and time lags in the magnetosphere-ionosphere system.

4. Magnetosphere-ionosphere feedback.

5. The polar cap and the auroral zone.

6. Geomagnetic storms.

7. Turbulence and self-organization.

8. Statistical techniques and mathematical models.

9. Scaling laws.

The conference site will be Hotel Rio Serrano, at Torres del Paine in Puerto Natales, Chile.

Important information regarding Visa requirements: The absolute majority of countries do not need visa to go to Chile. However, the citizens of the US, Canada, Mexico and some other countries need to pay the reciprocity fee in the Airport (US160 for US citizens). However, if you already paid it in a previous trip to Chile and you keep THE SAME PASSPORT, you only need to show the stamp in the passport that you did it. The list of requirements for each country can be found here. (See the column Req. VISTUR; No means that the citizen does not need the tourist Visa)
