Mike Hapgood has stepped down from MIST Council after serving the maximum two terms that are allowed by the MIST Charter. We would very much like to express our thanks to Mike for his dedicated service on MIST Council since it was formed in 2007, and for being an excellent chair.
Jonny Rae has been elected and Rob Fear has been re-elected to MIST Council for the next three years; they will join Emma Woodfield, Mario Bisi and Ian McCrea who remain on MIST Council. Ian will take over as the new chair.
Abstract submission is now open for the Autumn MIST meeting, which will be held at the Royal Astronomical Society, Burlington House, London, on Friday 29th November. The meeting will start at 10:30am (with coffee served from 10:00) and will include a poster session.
Contributions are welcome from all areas of MIST science, two out of the three sessions will be general MIST science sessions. In line with previous years we have planned a theme in one session which this year will be "Models and Data – their role in MIST science". With recent advances in computing capability, the use of models in all areas of MIST science has become more prevalent. We also invite contributions to this particular session of Autumn MIST which explore the use of models in MIST science and also the use of data to create and validate the models.
