The "Cambridge Workshops of Cool Stars, Stellar Systems and the Sun" are held biennially and have evolved to be the premier conference series for cool star research.

SOC and LOC plan the following imporant dates:
  • Jan 31 - deadline for slinter session proposals: application form here

  • March 7 - deadline for abstracts for contributed talks and financial support

We accept submissions for plenary talks and poster contributions.

Our facilities can support about 500 attendees with talks or posters. Based on the previous Cool Stars meetings, we expect that every interested astronomer should have a chance to join in, but the only guarantee is to submit your abstract early.
