ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE IAU FOCUS MEETING 8 "NEW INSIGHTS IN EXTRAGALCTIC MAGNETIC FIELDS"

https://iau2018fm8magnetism.wordpress.com/

The focus meeting will be held on August 29-31, 2018 during the XXXth General Assembly of the IAU in Vienna, Austria.

Magnetic fields are a key ingredient of the extragalactic Universe on many different spatial scales, from individual galaxies and AGN to clusters of galaxies and large-scale structure. The coming years and decades will see a burst in our information and understanding of extragalactic magnetic fields due to the next generation of radio astronomy facilities, especially the SKA and its precursors, as well as major advances in MHD numerical simulations and algorithmic improvements to extract magnetism information from the databases.

The Focus Meeting will bring together the observational, theoretical and computational communities to discuss the challenges and opportunities for understanding the magnetized Universe from scales of galaxies to the cosmic web and connect information across the spectrum.

CONFIRMED INVITED SPEAKERS: Kandu Subramanian, Hiroshi Nagai, Tina Kahniashvili, Annalisa Bonafede, Marcus Brueggen, Robert Laing, Jeroen Stil, Valentina Vacca, Ann Mao
