High angular resolution for stellar astrophysic: stellar activity, surface dynamics, fundamental parameters, exoplanetary systems, pulsations
9-21 sept. 2013
Centre Séolane - Barcelonnette (France)
With the advent of large and multi-telescope arrays in the past years, interferometry has reached a new stage. Interferometric facilities are becoming more and more open to non-specialist astronomers, and the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) is a good example as the interferometric facility is fully open. However the scientific outcome will be at the same level as the VLTI performance only if astronomers get prepared to interferometric observations and to the use of interferometric data and if the specialists in interferometry transmit their knowledge to the European astronomical community. We organize a school to train astronomers to the use of VTLI and other facilities with the current generation of instruments. The aim of the school is to offer to Ph.D. students, post-doctoral and permanent researchers an introduction to the high spatial resolution observation and theory in the field of the stellar activity and hydrodynamics as well as the determination of the fundamental parameters. The school will be held in the heart of Alpine mountains in Barcelonnette, Côte d'Azur, France from 9th-21st September 2013.
