'Ecology of blue straggler stars', Santiago, Chile

Event date:
2012-11-05 An event entitled 'Ecology of blue straggler stars' will take place from 5 to 9 November 2012 in Santiago, Chile.

Blue straggler stars are stellar oddities that have been found in a wide variety of environments. They are main sequence stars in open or globular clusters that are more luminous and bluer than stars at the main sequence turn-off point for the cluster. First discovered in 1953, blue stragglers are still a subject of intense research.

The event will bring together theoreticians, specialists and observers in order to compose a complete picture of the progress in the field. The programme will features extended invited reviews, contributing talks and space for posters.
