The magnetosphere is a complex nonlinear dynamical system with fundamental open questions including
How turbulence transports energy from large scales to small scales?
How small-scale processes control large-scale phenomena?
How plasma and energy are transported across boundary layers?
How magnetotail processes can be rigorously related to auroral signatures?
We invite papers utilizing the combination of ground-based instruments and spacecraft
such as MMS, Cluster, Themis, Artemis, Geotail, Double Star, the Van Allen probes
together with simulations and theory to advance our understanding of space Physics.
