Topics:

  • Solar dynamo and activity cycles: observations, theories and predictions
  • Stellar dynamos and cycles
  • Local dynamo: ubiquitous small-scale magnetic fields and "hidden magnetism"
  • Role of magnetic dynamos in energizing the solar/stellar atmospheres and coronal activity
  • Planetary dynamos
  • Dynamos in accretion disks, galaxies, ISM, IGM
  • Advances in dynamo theories, numerical simulations and experiments
  • Critical physical ingredients for dynamos: turbulence and instabilities
  • Current and future observing programs from the ground and space
  • New frontiers in understanding of the origins of cosmic magnetism
