The community was invited to the second PUNCH (Polarimeter to UNify the Corona and Heliosphere) Science Meeting (August 9-11, 2021), an in-development NASA mission that will image the outer corona and solar wind throughout the inner heliosphere. Major science topics included origin and evolution of the ambient solar wind and turbulence within it, and the physics and predictability of transient events including CMEs, CIRs, and shocks.

The meeting was virtual and comprised of formal presentations (invited and contributed) intermixed with discussion sessions. It took place over three days, Monday-Wednesday August 9-11, from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). There was also an icebreaker social event shortly after the end of the first day, Monday August 9 (1:30-3:30 PDT).
