11-13 November 2019, Padova - Italy

Solar Orbiter is fully integrated and is undergoing the last tests on electronics and software before being shipped to Kennedy Space Flight Center for the launch campaign.
Solar Orbiter is planned to be launched on 6th February 2020 and, after a cruise phase, will start its nominal mission at the end of 2021. 

Solar Orbiter carries the most complete suite of instruments for the study of the Sun after SOHO. 
With a payload composed of remote sensing and in-situ instruments will study the Sun at close heliocentric distance and out-of-ecliptic point of view, to investigate the polar regions and the connections between the magnetic field and the solar wind from the photosphere to the heliosphere. 

Metis is the payload coronagraph that will image the solar corona with a field of view from 1.6 to 3 degrees in the hydrogen Ly-alpha and in the polarised visible light broadband and will provide an insight on the dynamical phenomena that take place in the solar wind acceleration region. 

The workshop will be devoted to a detailed introduction of Metis to the solar and the heliospheric community, in order to define the scientific planning strategy and to propose science with Metis and the Solar Orbiter, in synergy with other current and planned space missions, such as PSP, PROBA-3, Bepi Colombo, and ground based instrumentation. 

The meeting will be held at Archivio Antico, Palazzo Bo in the afternoon of 11th of November and at the Centro Universitario in Padova on the 12th of November and in the morning of 13th of November. A poster session is foreseen. 

We look forward to welcoming you in Padova!
