July 29 - Aug 3 2018, Boston / Cambridge, USA

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.

Video recordings and slides for most talks are posted. See links for each abstract on the abstract page.

Please submit proceedings until October 15th. Check out our detailed instructions.

Information that was relevant during the conference (e.g. poster dimensions, talk instructions) has been moved to the bottom of this page.

Proceedings

Please submit proceedings until October 15th 2018.

Proceedings for Cool Stars 20 will be entirely electronic. Submission will be handled using Zenodo, an EU funded data and project repository, and then indexed on the ADS. All submissions are assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) number through Zenodo, making contributions citeable, before indexing to ADS to make contributions discoverable. Submission to the arXiv in parallel with submission to the conference proceedings is encouraged. Contributions are accepted from invited plenary session reviews, contributed plenary session talks and splinter session talks, and contributed posters. In addition, collective contributions from (parallel) splinter sessions and contributions from the CS20 hack day are welcome. If you would like to submit a typical conference proceeding, there are no formal page limits. However for some guidance, we recommend you limit yourself to 4-8 pages for contributed talks and 10-15 pages for invited talks. Those wishing to submit a written conference proceeding are encouraged to format the document using the Cool Stars 20 LaTeX document class. All such submissions should be made as PDFs and will be reviewed for content by the SOC and we may suggest edits.

Submission of presentation slides from speakers and full posters are also encouraged. PDF versions of these documents are the preferred format for Zenodo contributions to permit the documents to be previewed in a web browser. For maximum impact, you can submit both, a written contribution and your presentation slides and/or a poster to provide greater context. Contributions will be checked for the proper metadata.

Talks

Invited speakers should plan for a talk of 25 min plus 10 min for questions. Contributed talks should be 12 min long plus 3 min for questions. The resolution of the projector is 1920 x 1080 (so the format is 16:9). Presentations need to be uploaded onto our computer before the talk, so contact an LOC member at least 2 hours before your talk. Our computers provide standard presentation software for pdf, PowerPoint, KeyNote, LibreOffice and OpenOffice as well as webbrowsers and software for common movie formats. If you have any special requirements, please contact us at cs20@cfa.harvard.edu before the conference.

Posters

There are two poster rooms where posters can be displayed throughout the conference (Monday to Friday). Both of them are adjacent to the main auditorium. We will provide all hardware required to hang up posters. The space for each poster is a square where each side is $$1.75\times10^{-9}R_{\odot}=122\;\textrm{cm}=4.0\;\textrm{ft}$$ long.

Registration for conference

Our facilities can support about 500 attendees. 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 register early. Early registration is 475 $ till May 1st. After that the price will increase to 550 $ (regular registration) till June 15th. Late registration will be 600 $. Full registration includes the opening reception on Sunday, access to the conference on all five days with coffee breaks and the conference dinner on Thursday. We offer 1-d registration for 125 $ / day (which includes coffee breaks but not the opening reception or banquet) as well as extra guest tickets for the opening reception or the banquet.

At the time of registration you can also book one of the excursions.

We accept all major credit cards. Registration and credit card processing is handled by secure servers of the Smithsonian Institution. Click here to be forwarded to the payment form. Contact Jenine Humber if you have any problems or questions related to registration and payment.
