Solar, stellar, and planetary physics are among the most exciting contemporary topics in astrophysics, aided significantly by recently acquired high-quality observations from space and advances in computation and theory. The Center for Space Science at NYUAD aims to bring together internationally recognized practitioners in these areas to discuss cutting-edge developments. Representatives from the UAE academic and space sectors will also participate, and developing a means of collaboration will be an important focus of the meeting. This workshop is the second in a series of international meetings organized by the Center for Space Science at NYUAD, the first was Future Directions in Heliophysics.

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.
