11-13 April 2023 
Space Physics Laboratory, VSSC, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala


This conference is organized by the Space Physics Laboratory, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. It is organized to give an overview of the in-situ payloads [Aditya Solar wind Particle Experiment (ASPEX), Plasma Analyser Package for Aditya-L1 (PAPA) and Magnetometer (MAG) onboard Adity-L1 and their capabilities. Potential science problems that can be addressed by their observations will be discussed with the researchers from various Institutes and Universities across India. This will provide an excellent opportunity for the Indian Space science community to have interactions with Principal investigators (PIs) of the respective payloads and leading researchers in the field for mutual collaborations.
