IAU Symposium 286

Comparative Magnetic Minima: Characterizing Quiet Times in the Sun and Stars
October 3-7, 2011, Mendoza, Argentina

The goal of IAU S286 will be to consider solar and stellar minima, from
generative dynamo mechanisms, to in-depth analyses from Sun to Earth for
recent well-observed and modeled minima, to the range in stellar cyclic
activity, to outlier «grand minima». Solar, heliospheric, geospace,
atmospheric, stellar, and planetary science are included in the meeting’s
scope. The meeting will be held in Mendoza, Argentina, at the foot of the
Andes Mountains: «The land of Sun and good wine».
