The deaths of stars and the lives of galaxies

Santiago, Chile, April 8 - 12, 2013


Goal of this Workshop

The meeting will cover topics related to the final stages of stellar evolution and the many important aspects of astronomy that depend on understanding how stars die and what happens to their remnants.  Topics related to the stars themselves and how their later stages of evolution proceed, as well as how their demise affects their immediate surroundings and host galaxies, will be addressed.

The meeting will be unique in bringing together researchers in quite diverse areas of stellar astrophysics, but which actually have strong connections.

The workshop, spread over a week and held at the ESO-Chile headquarters in Santiago, will consist of extended invited reviews, with ample time for contributing talks and discussions, and space for posters. Our conference room holds about 100-120 people.
