17th European White Dwarf Workshop

Tübingen, Germany, August 16-20, 2010

This meeting continued the series of workshops which started in Kiel, Germany, in 1974, and came to Kiel again in 1984, 1994, and 2004. The last workshop took place last year in Barcelona (Spain).

The topics covered in the conference were similar to those of the previous meetings. Therefore, contributions in all areas of white dwarf (WD) research were welcome, including properties of WDs in binaries, but excluding the general fields of CVs, sdB stars and planetary nebulae. A tentative list of topics was:

  • 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
