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.

Splinter sessions are selected. See the list!

SOC and LOC plan the following imporant dates:
  • Early March - registration opens
  • March 16 - deadline for contributed talks in the plenary session and financial support
  • April 15 - contributed speakers announced
  • May 1 - deadline for early registration
  • June 15 - detailed splinter session programs online, deadline for poster abstracts and regular registration
  • July 10 - deadline for late registration
  • July 28: CIAO workshop / ExoPAG 18
  • July 29 to Aug 3: conference
  • Aug 4: Hack day


Registration will open in the next few days (we were delayed by a large snow storm in Boston). The registration fee will be about 475 $ for early registration.

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. Subscribe to our announcement list to be informed when registration opens.

Financial support

Limited financial support is available to allow students and other early career astronomers to attend CS20, if their institution cannot provide sufficient funds. The application form is available here. The deadline to submit the financial support application is March 14.

For CS20 participants that are also attending the ExoPAG meeting meeting on July 29, travel support might also be available through the Exoplanet Travel Bureau.
