The national UK MHD (magnetohydrodynamics) meeting has been the (almost) annual gathering discussing the latest results, challenges and opportunities in astrophysical (exoplanets, solar and stellar atmospheres and interiors, astrophysical discs, galaxies), geophysical (deep interiors of Earth and other planets) and laboratory MHD (casting, liquid metal batteries, etc). Sessions will address key research topics investigated by the UK MHD community, and priority will be given to young researchers to present their work. With senior participants from across the country (as well as some international participants), poster presentations, and informal discussions, this three-day meeting will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn about the latest research carried out in various research groups across the UK.

Abstract Submission Deadline (1st May 2023)

The deadline for abstract submissions was Monday 1st May 2023 (end of day). We announced the programme during the first week in May.

We prioritised giving talks to junior researchers, but anyone interested was very welcome to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation.

There were prizes for the best student talks and poster. These were difficult to pick as there were many good talks/posters! The winners were:

Ramada Sukarmadji (Northumbria University) “Numerical experiments on the role of Alfvén waves in triggering nanojets” (best talk)

Daining Xiao (Durham University) “Spherical Winding and Helicity” (runner-up best talk)

Scott Hopper (Newcastle University) “Stratified Resistive Tearing Modes" (best poster)
