             abstract = "Magnetic reconnection is a fundamental phenomenon in plasma 
                         physics and it is defined as a topological restructuring of 
                         magnetic fields due to changes in its magnetic connectivity. 
                         Magnetic reconnection is responsible for fast magnetic energy 
                         release in large scales, particle acceleration and heating. At the 
                         Earths dayside magnetopause, reconnection plays a very important 
                         role in the space weather as changing the plasma convection 
                         pattern, injecting particles into high-latitude ionosphere, and 
                         disturbing magnetic field observed on the ground. According to in 
                         situ observation and numerical simulation, magnetic reconnection 
                         at the dayside always occurs somewhere. The location and the 
                         interaction efficiency (geoeffectiveness) of the reconnection has 
                         a dependency on the solar wind conditions. Dayside reconnection 
                         can occurs as steady or transient, localized or extended, forced 
                         or spontaneous. Flux transfer events (FTEs) are considered as a 
                         result of transient magnetic reconnection and are often observed 
                         in the vicinity of the Earths magnetopause. Space physics 
                         community has been interested in FTEs since their discovery. 
                         Recently, computational simulations, and multi-point observations 
                         have provided advances to FTE generation and structure formation 
                         studies. We will present general aspects about Earths dayside 
                         magnetic reconnection and a survey of FTEs observed in situ.",
