The Symposium brought together solar and stellar physicists investigating the dynamics of convection zones and lower atmospheres. It was dedicated to observational and theoretical aspects of the hydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics of the solar and stellar convection zones and lower atmospheres, both global and local, with the inclusion of numerical simulations as a particular branch of theoretical research. Specific subjects discussed were:
- convection (solar – on different scales – and stellar),
- differential rotation and meridional circulation (both solar and stellar),
- global dynamo (in the Sun and stars; solar-cycle observed patterns and predictions),
- helioseismology and asteroseismology (both global and local; probing subsurface structure and dynamics),
- local magnetic-flux emergence and sunspot and starspot formation (observed patterns of sunspot evolution, small-scale motions, local dynamo).
