The goal of this SOLARNET Conference is to collectively review the advancement in our understanding of solar magnetic fields starting from the fundamental structure size of magnetic fields to global properties of active regions and the Sun as a whole including the heliosphere. This meeting is expected to

(1) provide a platform to present the latest results from the various research infrastructures available within SOLARNET II and beyond, be it ground-based telescopes or space missions;

(2) contribute to a better understanding of solar features by bringing together high-resolution and synoptic observations, simulations, analytical theory, and instrumentation; and

(3) to discuss the next steps in advancing instrumentation, methods, and theory.

To arrive at a cohesive picture of the magnetic Sun, the meeting will be organized according to specific scientific topics and questions, fostering discussions among observers, instrument builders, hosts of data holdings, and theoreticians.

Topics to be covered:

– the “zoo” of quiet-Sun, small-scale magnetic features,
– the life-cycle of magnetic structures – from flux emergence to decay,
– small-scale energetics – nano-flares, Ellerman bombs, etc.,
– the fine-structure of sunspot umbrae and penumbrae,
– active regions – stability vs. eruptive events, and
– global variations of magnetic fields with the solar cycle
