First Announcement

Posted by Jurek Krzesinski on 5 May 2011 | 0 Comments

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 18th European Workshop on White Dwarfs, to be held in Krakow (Cracow), Poland on 13-17th August 2012. This meeting will continue the series of workshops which started in Kiel, Germany, in 1974. The last workshop took place on August 2010 in Tübingen (Germany).

The topics to be covered at the conference will be similar to those of the previous meetings. Therefore, contributions in all areas of white dwarf (WD) research are welcome, including properties of WDs in binaries, but excluding the general fields of CVs, sdB stars and planetary nebulae.


  Since there is no formal list of topics yet, we show the one taken from eurowd10:

  • WD structure and evolution
  • Progenitors and central stars of planetary nebulae
  • Binaries: WDs in CVs, double degenerates, WD/brown dwarf systems, etc.
  • WD's dust disks and planetary systems
  • Atmospheres, chemical composition, magnetic fields
  • Pulsating WDs
  • WDs in stellar clusters and in the halo
  • WDs as SN Ia progenitors

We would like to maintain the spirit of previous conferences, thus allowing for oral contributions of around 20 minutes. Poster contributions are also welcome. Please inform any interested colleagues, as our mailing list might be not complete. Details about registration, publication of the proceedings, travel and accommodation and local information will be posted together with the second anouncement.
