RASPUTIN: Resolved And unresolved Stellar PopUlaTIoNs

Released: 23 Feb 2014

ESO Workshop, ESO Headquarters, Garching, Germany, 13-17 October 2014

The study of stellar populations is one of the most relevant diagnostics to constrain galaxy formation and evolution. Quantitative analyses of the stellar content of galaxies pave the way to 'convert' starlight into physical quantities like stellar masses, chemical abundances and star formation rates, and to trace the evolution and chemical enrichment history of galaxies.

The main goal of this workshop is to share observations, models, techniques and recent results. During the workshop the impact that the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) and its first generation instruments will have on resolved and unresolved stellar population studies will be discussed.

Registration is open until 12 September 2014 and further information is available from the RASPUTIN webpage or by email to:rasputin@eso.org.
