STP-15 is the acronym for the SCOSTEP’s 15th Quadrennial Solar Terrestrial Physics symposium, which aims to gather eminent scientists from solar, magnetospheric, ionospheric and atmospheric physics communities to discuss and deliberate on the cutting-edge sciences pertaining to Solar-Terrestrial Physics.

The STP-15 is hosted by Indian Institute of Geomagnetism (IIG), a premier research institute under Department of Science Technology, Govt. of India. The year 2021 - 2022 is a momentous year for IIG, which is celebrating its Golden Jubilee coinciding with the semisesquicentennial of Indian Independence (Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav). During this ceremonial year, IIG is proud to host the 15th Quadrennial Solar-Terrestrial Physics (STP-15) Symposium in India during 21-25 February 2022.

All research scientists and students working in the field of Solar-Terrestrial Physics encompassing the domains of the Sun, the Interplanetary Space, the Earth’s Magnetosphere and Ionosphere and the Atmosphere are welcome to participate in STP-15.
