COOL STARS 21 - Cambridge Workshops of Cool Stars, Stellar Systems and the Sun
[Postponed Covid-19] New dates : 5th to 9th July 2021.
We regret to announce that the Cool Stars, Stellar Systems, and the Sun 21st Conference, originally planned to be held on June 22-26, 2020, in Toulouse, France, has to be postponed due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. The decision was discussed within the SOC and LOC, and agreed by all members of the organizing committees. We plan to reschedule CS21 in Summer 2021.
Preliminary dates (tbc) for CS21 would be 5-9 July 2021, at the same location in Toulouse, France. We foresee that the program that was designed for CS21 this year, including the planned invited talks and the scheduled splinter sessions, will still be largely relevant next year, unless other hot topics emerge till then. We will continue to provide updated information on the current CS21 website.
As chairs of the SOC and LOC, we would like to express our gratitude to all the members of the organizing committees, especially to the members of the LOC for the efforts they deployed in this uncertain context. We extend our thanks to the chairs of the proposed Splinter sessions, to the speakers who accepted our invitation for the plenary sessions, and to all of you who had registered for the conference.
Take care, and we hope to see you next year!

The next edition of the conference series "Cool Stars, Stellar Systems and the Sun" (CS 21) will be held in Toulouse in 2021, about 40 years after its first edition in Cambridge (USA). This first edition was shortly followed that same year by a workshop on "Solar Phenomena in Stars and Stellar Systems" that took place in the southern French countryside, in a small village called Bonas. Both meetings are often considered as the starting point of this exceptionally successful conference series, where approximately 400 international experts in Low-Mass Stars, Solar Physics, and Exoplanets meet every other year to exchange ideas in a cross-disciplinary and friendly environment. Bonas is certainly not adapted anymore to host what became a major conference, but we will have CS 21 a stone throw away from there in Toulouse, where attendees will enjoy a certain lifestyle that - fortunately - has not change over the last forty years!
