Dear colleague, 
The 3rd SOLARNET workshop “Polarization in the Sun, the Solar System, and Beyond” will take place in Granada (Spain) between 25-28 May 2015, organized by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC). SOLARNET is an international project promoted by the European Association for Solar Telescopes and funded by the European Commission (

The goal of this workshop is to present the latest advances in astronomical polarimetry and spectropolarimetry, with a focus on the sun, solar system bodies, stars, and exoplanets. We also aim at bringing together the different communities and fostering collaborations between them. In order to provide a detailed account of the latest developments in these areas - including instrumentation, measurement techniques, data analysis and interpretation - the following sessions have been scheduled:

- Instrumentation (ground, space, laboratory)
- Diagnostics and Interpretation
- Solar Photosphere
- Solar Chromosphere, Transition Region, and Corona
- Polarization in the Solar System and Exoplanetary Systems
- Stellar Magnetic Fields
Keynote speaker: Sami K. Solanki (MPS)

Confirmed invited speakers S. Bagnulo (Armagh Observatory), T.A. Carroll (AIP), M. Collados (IAC), J.C. del Toro Iniesta (IAA-CSIC), C. Keller (Leiden University), O. Kochukhov (Uppsala University) A. Lagg (MPS), A. López Ariste (IRAP CNRS), K. Muinonen (University of Helsinki), O. Muñoz (IAA-CSIC), D. Orozco Suárez (IAC), G. Petrie (NSO), J. Stepan (Astronomical Institute ASCR), D. Stam (Delft University), T. Tarbell (LMSAL), S. Tomczyk (HAO), H. Uitenbroek (NSO),  G. Wade (RMC), R. West (JPL)

The workshop will be carried out the week after the 3rd SOLARNET school on “Solar Magnetic Fields: Modeling and Measuring Techniques” (18-23 May 2015, Granada, Spain), and we expect the students to attend both events. See for more information on the school.
We cordially invite you to contribute to this workshop and look forward to welcoming you in Granada this spring.
