About Cool Stars
The Cambridge Workshop on Cool Stars, Stellar Systems, and the Sun (better known as "Cool Stars") is the longest running independent astronomy workshop series, with the first workshop held in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1980. Since then, Cool Stars has occurred largely biennially, bouncing between North America and Europe since 1993. Previous hosts include Santa Fe, NM; Boulder, CO; Seattle, WA; Tucson, AZ; Athens, GA; Florence, Italy; Tenerife, Spain; Hamburg, Germany; Pasadena, CA; St. Andrews, Scotland; Barcelona, Spain; and Flagstaff, AZ. We are delighted to add Uppsala to this list.
Cool Stars gathers approximately 400 international experts on brown dwarfs, low-mass stars (from the pre-main-sequence through the asymptotic giant branch), solar physics, circumstellar environments, extrasolar planets, and astrobiology. Ultimately, the workshop creates a stimulating environment for a cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas and results. Cool Stars meetings have a long tradition of presenting cutting-edge science, demonstrated by the presentation of outstanding results, such as the discovery of the first extrasolar planet around a Sun-like star and the first confirmed brown dwarf, which were both first announced at Cool Stars 9 in Florence, Italy in 1995.
