We are pleased to announce the international workshop on "Advances and perspectives in Auroral Plasma Physics", to be held in Beaulieu (on the French Riviera near Nice). The workshop will provide the oppotunity to report on the latest results from theory, simulation and data analysis. Emphasis will be put on the high time resolution experimental results obtained by recent spacecraft missions and on the connection between auroral acceleration and magnetotail reconnection. In addition, a strategy for future spacecraft missions should also be discussed.

The participation in the Beaulieu Workshop is by invitation only, and the number of participants is limited to approximately forty. The atmosphere of the workshop will be informal. All talks will be "invited", with "equality" among attendees.

The Workshop is sponsored by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), by the Programme National Soleil Terre (PNST), and by the Royal Institue of Technology. The management of the Workshop is provided by the "Laboratoire de Physique des Plasmas" (UPMC, Polytechnique) with the local support of the "Laboratoire Cassiopee" (OCA).
