IAU Symposium #137: Flare Stars in Star Clusters, Associations, and the Solar Vicinity

 

October 23-27, 1989, Byurakan, Armenia

 

 

IAU Symp 137 was the first scientific meeting under the IAU aegis, convoking together the scientists, engaged in the investigation of UV Ceti stars in Solar vicinity (physical study of flare stars) and flare stars, which form a part of star clusters and associations (evolutionary study of flare stars).

 

Scientific Organizing Committee (SOC): V.A. Ambartsumian (USSR, chairman), P.F. Chugainov (USSR), D.S. Evans (USA), G. Haro (Mexico), I. Jankovics (Hungary), K. Kodaira (Japan), L.V. Mirzoyan (USSR), B.R.J. Petersen (Norway), L. Rosino (Italy), M.K. Tsvetkov (Bulgaria).

 

Local Organizing Committee: Ludwik V. Mirzoyan (Chair), Valeri V. Hambaryan (Secretary).

 

Scientific Topics:

 

         Flare Stars in Systems and Solar Vicinity

         Related Objects (T Tauri Stars, Fuors, Herbig-Haro Objects, etc.)

         Theoretical Problems and Interpretation of Observations

 

93 scientists from 17 countries (USSR, USA, Canada, Japan, UK, France, Italy, Greece, Netherlands, Switzerland, FRG, DDR, Bulgaria, Sweden, Hungary, Poland, and Norway) participated in the symposium, including 40 foreign, 20 from the other republics of the USSR, and 33 from Armenia.

 

Altogether 70 contributions were presented, including 8 invited reviews on the invitation of the SOC of the Symposium (by L.V. Mirzoyan, K.R. Lang, V.A. Ambartsumian, G.F. Gahm, B. Reipurth, V.P. Grinin, C.J. Lada, and M. Rodono), 42 oral reports, and 20 posters.

 

It is to be mentioned, that the evolutionary status of flare stars was established in the Byurakan Observatory on the base of investigations of these stars in star clusters and associations. These investigations was based on vast photographic observations of flare stars in these systems, carried out in the observatories of many countries, first of all in Mexico, Italy, and USSR.

 

Carrying out of the IAU Symposium 137 in Byurakan was recognition of the great contribution of BAO to the investigation of flare stars.
