Solar and Stellar Coronal Mass Ejections — A Cool Stars 21 Splinter Session

Coronal Mass Ejection

This splinter session aims at bringing together observers and theoreticians who conduct research on solar and stellar coronal mass ejections (CMEs). The following fundamental questions will be addressed:

  • What is the current status of the observational capabilities for stellar CMEs?
  • How can we use our knowledge of solar CMEs for understanding stellar CMEs?
  • How can we identify the source regions of stellar CMEs?
  • How do we model stellar CMEs?
  • How do stellar CMEs impact their environment?

The session will cover four main topics: solar observations and simulations, stellar CME observations, stellar CME simulations, and stellar CME sources.

Key dates:

  • Abstract submission deadline: 13 May 2022
  • Notification on contribution: 1 June 2022

Session organizers:

  • Iulia Chifu (Institute for Astrophysics and Geophysics, University of Goettingen, Germany)
