Third Iberian Workshop:
Exploitation of space missions and new technologies in Asteroseismology
Navacerrada, Madrid, 3-5 May, 2010

Presentation - Provisional program - Registration -


Scientific rationale

At the present, a large amount of space data coming from Kepler and CoRoT are in the hands of the stellar seismology community, and in particular of the researchers working in Portugal and Spain. In addition, a large amount of ground-based data complementing space observations are also available. The analysis and interpretation of all these data is a major challenge, and to develop actual work "hands-on" would expand the research presently carried out by the Iberian community. This meeting is devoted to this hands-on work.

We are going to work in-situ on the analysis and modeling of different Kepler and CoRoT targets, and the corresponding ground-based observations, when relevant. The meeting is based on a series of presentations, representative of different Kepler WG, where the most interesting objects, the exotic objects from this WG point of view, and their necessities to achieve the objectives, are explained. There will be also presentations on any CoRoT or Kepler individual object of interest for the Iberian community. The remaining time of the meeting is devoted to work on these objects, using all the tools available in the  community. There will be a special session on VO facilities.

This plan requires the participation of every researcher, and the meeting is open to proposal on any interesting object. If you want to discuss and work on any interesting Kepler or CoRoT object, or on any Kepler WG, do not hesitate to contact the SOC ( Deadline, April 15th.

We look forward to seeing you in Navacerrada in May 2010 and would appreciate receiving your INDICATION OF INTEREST AND PROPOSALS to the mail "" at your very earliest convenience. This is a very important part of our planning since we will base the detailed planning of the workshop on your indications.
