Stellar Pulsation: Challenges for Theory and Observation
Santa Fe, New Mexico
May 31 - June 5, 2009
We will be posting photos and links on the Photos page. If you have photos or a link to them that you would like to post, please E-mail Joyce.
Remember that proceedings are due to Joyce on July 20! The editors need to complete their work and deliver the files to the AIP on August 4, and we want everyone's contributions, so please do not miss this deadline.
Additional proceedings directions are posted at the link to the left.
The continuation of the series of Los Alamos stellar pulsation conferences starting in 1971 will be held in Santa Fe, May 31-June 5, 2009. This conference will be the nineteenth of these stellar astrophysics meetings. All stellar structure, evolution, and variability topics are welcome, but the emphasis will be on stellar stability and stellar pulsations, both radial and nonradial. Observational and theoretical papers are sought with the goal of better understanding internal stellar structure (including composition details) and the evolution of stars. Also welcomed are papers discussing the luminosity of these intrinsic variable stars with a goal of determining distance scales in our galaxy and nearby ones. Classical topics as well as those relating to solar-like oscillations for stars not intrinsically pulsationally unstable will be encouraged. With machine speeds so great now, it is expected that even elaborate nonlinear calculations will also be presented.
