Auroral emissions have been detected from all explored magnetized planets of the solar system and several of their satellites. Such powerful electromagnetic radiations result from a complex interplay between the sun, the solar wind, the planetary magnetosphere and its moons, the planetary ionosphere and the rings. Auroral processes cover a wide range of wavelengths (from radio to X-rays) with various generation mechanisms, and form a set of valuable diagnostic to remotely probe space plasmas, magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling etc.

This session welcomes contributions on the most recent results obtained from the large set of observations provided by numerous space missions (Hisaki (EXCEED), Cassini, Galileo, HST, XMM/Chandra...) and ground-based observatories (IR and radio telescopes) as well as modeling and theoretical developments, with a special attention for multi-spectral approaches, and comparative analysis. A particular focus will be given to recent observing planetary campaigns. We also encourage contributions regarding future prospects in the frame of upcoming missions to Jupiter (JUNO, JUICE), Mercury (Bepi-Colombo) and ongoing projects to Uranus, Neptune and the Earth.
