Subject: IAU Symposium 343 on "Why Galaxies Care About AGB Stars"

FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

IAU Symposium 343: Why Galaxies Care About AGB Stars. A Continuing Challenge through Cosmic Time

August 20–23, 2018, during the XXXth General Assembly of the IAU in Vienna, Austria

http://www.univie.ac.at/galagb/s343/

This IAU symposium 343 aims to build a bridge between research on Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars themselves and its application to the modelling of stellar populations and the chemical evolution of galaxies and the Universe as a whole. Current developments and challenges seen from both domains will be discussed to reach an understanding of possibilities, limitations, and needs in both areas, and hence to improve our understanding of the role of AGB stars in the context of galaxies over cosmic time.

Confirmed invited speakers:

Sara Bladh, Orsola de Marco, Bernd Freytag, David Gobrecht, Zeljko Ivezic, Atefeh Javadi, Devika Kamath, Tomasz Kaminski, Amanda Karakas, Chiaki Kobayashi, Eric Lagadec, John Lattanzio, Marcelo Miller Bertolami, Sofia Ramstedt, Philip Rosenfield, Raghvendra Sahai, Letizia Stanghellini, Kyung-Won Suh, Eline Tolstoy, Paolo Ventura, Wouter Vlemmings, Patricia Whitelock, Svitlana Zhukovska
