International Workshop on Spectral Stellar Libraries 2013
14-17 oct. 2013
Amphithéatre Bibliotheque Marie Curie - INSA - Lyon (France)
Libraries of stellar spectra play an important role in different fields of astrophysics. In particular they serve as reference for the classification and automatic analysis of large stellar spectroscopic surveys and are fundamental ingredients of the models of stellar populations used to study the evolution of galaxies. These libraries may either consist of observed or theoretical spectra, and they vary by their spectral coverage/domain and resolution. The goals of the workshop are to present the recent efforts in this domain and to describe the usage of the libraries. Beside the collections of spectra themselves, the description of the spectra and of the stars composing the libraries (e.g. the atmospheric parameters) will be a focus of the meeting.
