The 34th ESLAB Symposium “The 3-D Heliosphere at Solar Maximum” will be held
at ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands, on 3-6 October 2000.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 31 May 2000

All current information about the Symposium can be found on the ESLAB 34
Website at: http://solarsystem.estec.esa.nl/eslab34/eslab34_frame.htm

The Symposium will be structured around the following Sessions:

* The Sun and Corona near Solar Maximum

* The Large-scale structure of the Heliosphere near Solar Maximum

* Energetic Particles in the Heliosphere

* Cosmic Rays in the Heliosphere

* The Heliosphere in the Local Interstellar Medium

and will address such topics as:

* What are the dominant processes that determine the global structure of the inner heliosphere under conditions of high solar activity?

* What are the key differences between the high-latitude heliosphere at solar maximum and solar minimum?

* What is the extent of coupling between the low- and high-latitude
heliosphere near solar maximum?

* What is the latitudinal structure of transient interplanetary disturbances?

* What is the nature of cosmic ray modulation at high latitudes near solar
maximum?

* What are the key questions to be addressed by the fleet of solar /
heliospheric spacecraft in the period 2000- 2004?
