Each of five days of the Symposium will be allotted to one of the five basic topics, considered in both observational and theoretical aspects. Differently scaled solar convection and magnetoconvection and models of stellar convection will be the subject of a first session. A second session will be devoted to the theory of solar and stellar differential rotation and meridional circulation in parallel with relevant observational data. Solar and stellar global dynamos will be discussed at a third session along with solar-cycle observational patterns and predictions. The helioseismological inversions describing the rotational-velocity distribution in the solar interior and also asteroseismology will, together with local helioseismology, be a subject of a fourth session. A consideration of local active processes such as observed patterns of active-region development, magnetic-flux emergence, local dynamo, small-scale motions, sunspot and starspot formation, etc., is planned to be on the agenda of a fifth session.
