MIST Council are pleased to announce three resources for the MIST community on the MIST website.
The list of MIST research groups has been updated to include the latest members of the MIST community, and to incorporate the latest links to their presences online. Old groups, or groups at institutions which have merged since the original list was written, are now excised, and the list should be an exhaustive and up-to-date list of British MIST institutions.
We asked the MIST community to come forward and be listed on our list of seminar speakers, and the uptake has so far been very encouraging. The list ranges from relatively junior PhD students to academics at various institutions, and if you're arranging seminars for your research group, we would encourage you to take a look.
Following the success of the recently-held Public Engagement in MIST (MIST+PE) symposium, there was an appetite for MIST Council to better advertise the public engagement being done at MIST institutions across the UK. The Public Engagement page on the MIST website aims to advertise the MIST community's strengths to the rest of the community.
The Royal Astronomical Society's National Astronomy Meeting (NAM) will be held on the campus of Lancaster University from Sunday 30th June to Thursday 4th July 2019. The official website is available here. In addition to the UK's astronomy community, the meeting includes the UK Solar Physics (UKSP) and Magnetosphere Ionosphere and Solar-Terrestrial (MIST) communities. Lancaster is the home to a large and active MIST group, and so the MIST community will be right at home next year!
Isobel Hook and Jim Wild, on the behalf of the organisers, write:
We now invite the community to submit proposals for parallel sessions to be held at NAM2019. Proposals are welcome for sessions covering all aspects of NAM, UKSP, and MIST science, including cross-discipline sessions.
The deadline for submitting parallel session proposals is Monday 7 January 2019 at 17:30 UTC and proposals should be submitted here.
