PLATO2.0: Coordination of the Stellar-Properties work packages

Scientific Rational
PLATO2.0 has been selected by ESA as the third medium-size mission, with a launch expected in 2024. PLATO2.0 aims at the detection of terrestrial exoplanets in the habitable zone of solar-type stars and at the characterization of their bulk properties. To reach this goal, the masses, radii, and, ages of planet-host stars must be determined with high accuracy. These stellar properties will be inferred from the PLATO2.0 asteroseismic data. These data will also allow us to probe the internal physics and dynamics of a large sample of stars and, as a consequence, to improve stellar evolution models, increasing further the accuracy on the parameters inferred for individual stars.

This workshop will bring together key researchers involved in the PLATO work packages related to the determination of stellar parameters from asteroseismology with the aim of coordinating their activities towards the fulfillment of the goals that have been set in context of PLATO2.0.
