Alliance Workshop in Manchester: 5-6 February 2018

The next Alliance Workshop will be held at Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics in the University of Manchester, 5-6 February 2018. The aim is to discuss energetic particles in solar flares and interplanetary space and related topics. For further information about the Alliance Workshops, please see:
