International symposium
"Recent progress in heliospheric physics by direct measurements of unexplored space plasmas"

February 25 (Mon.) - 28 (Thu), 2019
Nagoya University, Furo-cho, Chikusa-ku, Nagoya, Japan
Research Institute Building II, 3F-Hall (F3-3 in campus map)

The International ISEE symposium "Recent progress in heliospheric physics by direct measurements of unexplored space plasmas" will be held from 25-28 Feb. 2019 at Nagoya University, Japan. The purpose of the symposium is to bring heliospheric physicists together for discussions about new developments of heliospheric physics driven by recent and forthcoming spacecraft missions. The symposium covers broad topics related to the recent progress and future outline in heliospheric physics with invited and contributed talks. The 2018 ISEE prize winner will also give a plenary talk at the symposium.
