Plasma-wave processes in the Earth's and planetary magnetospheres, ionospheres, and atmospheres
An international conference dedicated to the memory of Professor Victor Yu. Trakhtengerts (1939-2007), and marking the occasion of his 70th birthday, will be organized by the Institute of Applied Physics RAS. The conference will be held at IAP RAS in Nizhny Novgorod from 13 to 17 April 2009.
The Program of the Conference comprises the following major topics:
- Wave phenomena in the Earth's and planetary magnetospheres and the dynamics of the radiation belts and ring current,
- Role of wave processes in the magnetosphere-ionosphere interactions,
- Effects of active experiments on ionosphere and magnetosphere, and
- Collective phenomena in atmospheric electricity.
The conference working languages are Russian and English. Presentations should be prepared in English.
If you would like to participate in this conference, we ask you to pre-register via the site or (less desirable) by sending an e-mail message to the Organizing Committee firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your name, institute, and e-mail address, and also, if possible, what is the probability of your participation.
