The traditional summer workshop on Time-Distance Helioseismology and Acoustic Holography will be held on August 6-9, 2007, at Stanford, CA. The main goal of the workshop is to discuss the recent progress in the time-distance and holography techniques, new results, perspectives and plans for analysis of SDO/HMI, SOHO/MDI, Hinode/SOT, and GONG data.
Among the topics for discussion are: theoretical and empirical models of sensitivity kernels; testing measurements and inversion techniques with realistic numerical simulations and wave propagation models; wave interaction with magnetic fields; effects of non-uniform excitation and damping; feature kernels and diagnostics of small-scale structures; high-frequency waves and atmospheric seismology; sunquake seismology; solar-cycle effects; large-scale and meridional flows; structure and dynamics of active regions; diagnostics of emerging magnetic flux; tachocline and far-side imaging; calibration of Doppler measurements; initial helioseismology results from Hinode; status and plans of data analysis software development for the HMI data analysis pipeline.
The workshop will take place in the conference room (102/103) in the new Astrophysics Building at Stanford. The directions and hotel information are available at http://soi.stanford.edu/general/meetings/public_html/visitor.html .
