An induced magnetosphere is created by the interaction of an external plasma drifting with respect to a planetary ionized environment when the planetary magnetic field is either absent or too weak to shield the atmosphere of the planet from the action of the external plasma. Two terrestrial planets, Venus and Mars, a few planetary moons of the giant planets, and comets have induced magnetospheres. This session is devoted to plasmas processes creating the induced magnetospheres or contributing to their dynamics. Contributions reporting and/or analyzing observations, modelling and simulations are welcome.
