and Their Lives in the Galaxy
An MIT Haystack Observatory Workshop
October 3 - 5, 2012
Westford, Massachusetts USA
Detectable radio emission arises from stars across the entire H-R diagram, spanning virtually every stage of stellar evolution. The origin of stellar radio emission stems from a wide variety of physical processes, and observations of stars at radio wavelengths probe a broad range of astrophysical phenomena that cannot be studied by any other means.
This workshop will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion
of the many advances in stellar and solar astrophysics recently (or
soon to be) enabled by the latest generation of state-of-the-art radio
facilities operating from meter to submillimeter wavelengths. We seek
to bring together both observers and theorists to stimulate a lively
exchange of ideas on how radio wavelength observations can
provide new and unique insights into the workings of stars.
The workshop will focus on both hot and cool stars spanning the main sequence through post-main sequence evolutionary phases. We will also explore radio stars as probes of the Galaxy and the Galactic "ecosystem".
Invited review topics will include:
The workshop will be held at Haystack Observatory in Westford, Massachusetts, roughly 35 miles northwest of Boston. Note that October is one of the most beautiful times of year to visit New England!
