1 Introduction to CMSO Meeting Center for Magnetic Self-Organization in Laboratory and Astrophysical Plasmas

2 Outline Reminder of CMSO (topics, participants, structure) Status (prior meetings and planning) This meeting

3 Topics Magnetic Reconnection Dynamo Angular Momentum Transport Ion Heating Magnetic Chaos and Transport Magnetic Helicity Conservation and Transport

4 Institutions Princeton University The University of Chicago The University of Wisconsin Science Applications International Corp Swarthmore College Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory ~25 investigators, ~similar number of postdocs and students

5 The Tools Experimental facilities Computation Apply multiple tools to each physics problem

6 yields range of topologies and critical parameters Joint experiments and shared diagnostics Experimental facilities

11 Center Status Sept, 2003Start Phase oneDetailed planning (Sept - Jan, 04) cross-disciplinary discussions Phase twoResearch underway (Jan, 04 - ongoing) Phase threeEmphasize lab/astro links

12 Sept, 03Ion heating/chaos (Chicago) Sept, 03Reconnection/momentum (Princeton) Oct, 03Dynamo (Chicago) Nov, 03General meeting (Chicago) Jan, 04 Detailed plans on web (www.cmso.info) June,04Hall dynamo and relaxation (Princeton) Aug, 04General meeting (Madison) CMSO Meetings

13 Various Research Interactions astrophysical plasma research theory, computation observation laboratory plasma research theory, computation experiment new opportunities for both within CMSO

14 experiments to test astrophysics ideas astrophysical concept experiment Generation of new ideas from experiments experiment cross-cutting modes of research theory, computation astrophysics

15 This Meeting Purpose Physics talks Review progress Review and discuss plans (general input, details settled later)

16 Format of Meeting For most research topics An invited talk (45 min., incl min. for discussion) A talk on a recent Center result (30 min, incl. ~ 10 min for discussion Presentation/discussion on progress and plans (75 minutes, including some 10 minute talks) Educational Outreach: Progress/Plans (one hour) Final open session for feedback, synthesis, discussion (2.5 hrs)

17 Lunch provided in this building Meeting dinner tonight ($30) - pay at break or lunchtime MST visit: if interested, sign up
