The Community of European Solar Radio Astronomers [CESRA] held its triennial workshop in Orleans, France, from 13-17 June 2016.

The CESRA2016 workshop was attended by around 60 participants from 20 countries, and had a special emphasis on the complementarity of space-based and ground-based radio observations, and provided the community a place to discuss the exciting new science opportunities that arise from, for example, the Solar Orbiter and Solar Probe Plus missions, the new and future radio instruments like ALMA, E-OVSA, EVLA, LOFAR, MUSER, and SKA, and the plans to design and build a European spectroheliograph.

The interesting workshop presentation will feature in the forthcoming CESRA highlights of Solar Radio Physics.

The highlights are short communications written in language accessible to a non-expert in the specific area. The highlights can be followed, discussed at:

Editorial – Pulling together after Brexit

Like many physicists in the UK, I spent the final Friday of June in shock. Voters in Britain had just opted by a margin of 52% to 48% to leave the European Union (EU) – and suddenly nothing in the world seemed to make sense any more. I'd never really thought a majority would want a British exit (Brexit) from the EU. As with the referendum over Scottish independence from the UK in 2014, I'd assumed voters would come to their senses at the last minute.
