SOLAR POLARIZATION 8, a workshop in honor of Egidio Landi Degl'Innocenti
September 12 – 16, 2016 Firenze, Italy

This is the second announcement of the Solar Polarization Workshop 8 (SPW8), which will be held in honor of the career and work of Egidio Landi Degl'Innocenti in the field of solar and stellar spectropolarimetry.
The aim of the workshop is to highlight and discuss the latest results and advances in the fields of solar and stellar spectropolarimetry. All the main aspects of this discipline will be debated: theory, observations, numerical modeling, and instrumentation. In each session, we expect contributions from scientists active in both solar and night-time spectropolarimetry, in order to promote know-how exchange between the two research fields.

Participants can apply to present a talk (standard or review) or a poster. The preliminary time slot for a review talk is 40 minutes (including 10min of Q&A), that for a standard talk is 25 minutes (including 10min of Q&A). The SOC is ultimately responsible for the selection of the presentations and the allocation of the final presentation time slots. The SOC also has the prerogative to directly invite review and keynote speakers.
