Welcome to ISSS-10

The 10th International School/Symposium for Space Simulations (ISSS-10) will take place from July 24-31, 2011 at the Banff Conference Centre in Banff, Alberta, Canada. Banff is located in the majestic Canadian Rockies and is approximately 130 km (80 miles) west of Calgary, Alberta.

The International School/Symposium for Space Simulations (ISSS) has a history of nearly 30 years and the program is designed for the teaching of space plasma simulation techniques and sharing of state-of-the-art simulation advances and results with researchers in plasma physics. ISSS-10 will bring together the most recent observational results, theoretical advances and numerical simulations to address the outstanding problems in space physics. ISSS-10 is open to all members of the scientific community but participation by graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists are particularly encouraged.

The school and symposium will be integrated so that tutorial/practical sessions on various types of plasma simulation models (kinetic codes: particle-in-cell (PIC), large scale kinetic (LSK), Vlasov, hybrid, guiding center and gyrokinetic; magnetohydrodynamic codes: Hall MHD, Gyro-fluids, etc.) will be presented along with review, invited and contributed talks on selected topics in space plasma physics research. Poster sessions will also be held to highlight results obtained by both young and senior scientists in the field.

Fellowships will be available for students and young scientists and information on the application process will be posted.

We look forward to seeing you in Banff!
