Heliophysics aims to understand the root causes of the Sun's magnetic activity and to study the effects of the Sun on the heliosphere and planets in the solar system. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together experts from all over the world to build a science case for a future space mission in solar physics with a helioseismology component. Opportunities for collaborations in the UAE and beyond will be discussed.

The Center for Space Science at the NYUAD Institute is setting up a world-class research and outreach program in solar, stellar and exoplanet science. In addition to being a hub of intellectual activity within NYUAD, the Center intends to be a significant resource in supporting one of UAE's Innovation Priority Sectors, space.
