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.

Poster submissions are requested (limited in number due to space), on all topics concerned with fluid dynamics and MHD.
These can be submitted at the same time as registration.

The meeting is organised with the support of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Financial support
In order for Research Students and Early Career Postdocs to attend, there is a limited number
