It is fifty years since Paul Roberts FRS set down the fundamentals of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) in his seminal book. New results have recently emerged from numerical dynamos, theoretical analyses, planetary missions to Mercury and Jupiter and liquid metal experiments. Here we wish to bring together theoreticians, numericists and experimentalists to discuss the frontiers of dynamo theory and fluid flows in planetary contexts.

There will be a series of invited talks. A dinner will take place on Thursday evening, which is included in the registration fee.

Final details:
Poster boards are A0 Portrait.

Lunch can be taken at your own expense at one of the many outlets near the RAS.

The programme is here.

The Abstract book in pdf form is here. Note that the Abstract book will not be printed and distributed. Please download your copy ahead of time.
