Summer Schools

Pulsations Along Stellar Evolution, 11 - 22 November 2019, La Plata, Argentina

Based on the powerful tools provided by asteroseismology and the new generation of satellites (Kepler, BRITE, and upcoming missions such as TESS and PLATO) combined with ground-based surveys (e.g., ASAS, KELT) delivering long-term photometric observations with high precision, the Hertzsprung-Russell (HR) diagram is nowadays populated almost completely with instability domains, meaning that almost all stars across the HR diagram pulsate in specific modes. The excitation of stellar oscillations strongly depends on the physical processes within the star as well as on the internal stellar structure. Observable oscillation frequencies can further be modified by stellar rotation and magnetic fields. Identifying and analyzing stellar pulsation frequencies hence provide the only means to investigate in great detail and with high precision, the physics of stars in all mass ranges and throughout their entire lifetime.

The aim of this Summer School is to train the next generation of researchers in the field of stellar pulsations and to sensitize them for the importance of asteroseismology for our understanding of stellar structure and the evolution of stars.

The school is aimed at PhD students, but early-career post-docs or late-stage under-graduate students can apply as well, provided that their main research field lies within the school's subjects. The school will be divided into theoretical and practical courses.

Stellar Winds and Outflows, 2020 August 24 - September 4, Czech Republic

This school has been cancelled due to the Corona pandemic. Whether the organization of this school can be resumed at a later date depends on the future financial possibilities of POEMS.

Workshop

Extreme Massive Stars, September 2022, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

We plan to present our final results in the frame of an international workshop that we will organize in September 2022 in Brazil.

Consortium Meeting

Mid-Term Review / Project Meeting, August 29, 2020

The mid-term meeting will be held at the Astonomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences, on 29 August 2020.

More information on the meeting will be provided in due time.
