KASC-6: A new era of stellar astrophysics with Kepler

KASC-6, the 6th Kepler Asteroseismic Science Consortium Conference, will take place in Sydney, Australia, in June 2013. It will be the first KASC conference after all Kepler data became public in 2012 — marking a new era in science with Kepler. We therefore welcome everyone to attend KASC-6, both members and non-members of KASC, who are interested in the stellar astrophysics that we can investigate with Kepler data. The main themes of the conference will be Stellar structure and evolution using asteroseismology, Stellar activity and rotation, Binary stars, and connections to Extrasolar planets. This conference offers great opportunities to establish new collaborations in these scientific fields, which are currently experiencing dramatic progress driven by the vast amounts of exquisite photometric data from space missions like Kepler.
