Scope and Goals:

This year, the 5. MHD-Tage will be held in Dresden at the Forschungszentrum Rossendorf (FZR) on 25. and 26 November 2002. It is jointly organized by the MHD-group of the Institute of Safety Research at FZR, and by the Sonderforschungsbereich 609 "Elektromagnetische Strömungsbeeinflussung in Metallurgie, Kristallzüchtung und Elektrochemie".

Following the tradition of the former MHD-Tage, held in Potsdam 1997, Göttingen 1999, Potsdam 2000, and Bochum 2001, the 5. MHD-Tage will focus on astrophysical plasmas. However, there will also be a link to earthly topics like the geodynamo and its laboratory "epigones", as well as to industrial applications of MHD. In this context, we would like to inform about the MHD activities in the Dresden area, and present our MHD laboratory to the guests.

Undergraduate and PhD students are particularly encouraged to attend. In case of financial problems, please contact the organizing committee.
