In 2012, the International Max Planck Research School on Physical
Processes in the Solar System and Beyond at the Max Planck
Institute for Solar System Research and the Universities of
Braunschweig and Göttingen (Solar System School) is celebrating its
10th anniversary. On this occasion, the current PhD students of the Solar System
School are organising the scientific conference called «Rocks and
Stars». The conference covers the whole solar system within geo- and
astrophysics, with sessions on star and planet formation, solar-stellar
relations, the solar photosphere and chromosphere, the solar corona and solar
wind, solar MHD, solar variability and climate, Sun-planet interactions,
terrestrial planets, gas planets, planetary dynamics, small bodies in the solar
system, and exoplanets. The conference will be attended by internationally
reknown researchers in solar system science and by both former and current
students of the Solar System School.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Göttingen!
