Preliminary overview of the event

It brings us a great pleasure to announce an International conference on Science with VLF during 14th -18th March, 2010. The subjects will include the science of electron precipitation, possible relation between seismic effects and ionospheric behaviour, study of solar flares and other high energy phenomena using VLF, effects of solar eclipse etc. using the ionosphere as a detector.

Great progress in ionospheric research in Kolkata was made by Sisir K. Mitra and A. P. Mitra. Recent Tsunami and a large number of earthquakes in the south Asia region motivated us to concentrate on such studies once again.  The conference will cover all aspects of the observational and theoretical results related to VLF wave propagation. It is expected that the present meeting will produce a collective knowledge from the VLF researchers of different places of world combining with our experience over last ten years or so to have a more precise understanding of the subject.

The conference is organized by the Department of Astrophysics and Cosmology of S.N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences.  To let visitors have a taste of Kolkata and surrounding regions amidst natural beauty, we are holding the first three days of the conference in SNBNCBS auditorium.

Following this meeting, we plan to have the concluding session and panel discussions during 17-18th March in about ~24 hr trip to Sundarban, the natural habitat of the Royal Bengal Tigers, the Delta of Ganges on the West Bengal Tourism boats.

We plan to publish a conference proceedings. However the details will be made known in due course.
