In 2012, the International Max Planck Research School on Physical Processes in the Solar System and Beyond at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research and the Universities of Braunschweig and Göttingen (Solar System School) is celebrating its 10th anniversary. On this occasion, the current PhD students of the Solar System School are organising the scientific conference called "Rocks'n'Stars".
The conference covers the whole solar system within geo- and astrophysics, with sessions on star and planet formation, solar-stellar relations, the solar photosphere and chromosphere, the solar corona and solar wind, solar MHD, solar variability and climate, Sun-planet interactions, terrestrial planets, gas planets, planetary dynamics, small bodies in the solar system, and exoplanets.
The conference will be attended by internationally reknown researchers in solar system science and by both former and current students of the Solar System School.
