Date and place: July 3, 2017 - Jussieu Campus, Meeting room 317, INSP, tower 22-23, 3rd floor


The goal of the meeting is to provide an informal platform for scientists to exchange ideas on magnetic reconnection.

During the meeting, ample time will be dedicated to discussions, and participants are encouraged to propose a topic or a question to animate the discussions.
