Magnetohydrodynamics 58, 4 (2022)

Special issue:

Selected papers of the 12th PAMIR International Conference on Fundamental and Applied MHD

Krakow, Poland July 4--8, 2022


This special issue of the Magnetohydrodynamics Journal is a selection of papers that were presented at the Pamir Conference in Krakow (AGH University, Poland) on July 1--4, 2022. The selected papers were chosen from the best oral and poster presentations. The conference was focused on what is called Magneto sciences that concerns the AC or DC magnetic field actions in dynamics or static processes.

A Summer School devoted to green house energy was organised in parallel with the conference and was for a part located in the same building. Another part of this school, focused on nuclear energy, took place in Latvia, in the premises of the Institute of Physics, University of Latvia in collaboration with CEA Cadarache, in the framework of the European ESFR-SMART project.

A meeting of the candidates for a European project, STILLNESS, in the frame of the COST program of the EU, was also proposed in parallel with the conference, benefiting from the support of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region (France) under the ``amorc̨age Europe'' programme.

The conference as well as the summer school obtained an important international participation of about 20 countries but were affected by the Russian against Ukrainian war so that the Russian scientists were not authorized to participate and, on the other hand, made it difficult for others affected by economic difficulties to participate.

But finally, the global results were at an excellent level. The next Pamir Conference is planned under the auspices of the European MHD Association (EuMHD) new structure, the purpose of which is to valorise the magnetohydrodynamics projects as well as to attract young scientists.

The publication of this special issue has benefited from the excellent work carried out by the staff of the Latvian journal MagnetoHydroDynamics, whom the organizing committee of Pamir 2022 would like to thank.

We also thank the sponsors for their generous contributions:
