A meeting on the occasion of the 50th birthday of Axel Brandenburg (Nordita, Stockholm, Sweden). The location has been chosen in Finland, where the academic career of Axel has started. The scope of the meeting covers the broad range of Axel's research interests, from planets to the Sun and stars, to galaxies, and to the Early Universe, with emphasis on the role and origin of magnetic fields, and on numerical experiments. Axel has published with about 130 coauthors. The purpose of the meeting is to bring together leading experts in these research areas, many of whom will inevitably -- but not exclusively -- be Axel's friends and coauthors.

The venue will be the Kiljavanranta Conference Centre located by the lake Sääksjärvi about 50 km from Helsinki (and 35 km from the Helsinki-Vantaa airport, and 10 km from the nearest town, Nurmijärvi). The Centre provides excellent working environment and attractive leisure facilities.
