What is "Cool Stars"?

The next edition of the conference series "Cool Stars, Stellar Systems and the Sun" (CS 21) will be held in a hybrid format (details TBD) in Toulouse from July 4 to 9 2022, 42 years after its first edition in Cambridge (USA). This first edition was shortly followed that same year by a workshop on "Solar Phenomena in Stars and Stellar Systems" that took place in the southern French countryside, in a small village called Bonas. Both meetings are often considered as the starting point of this exceptionally successful conference series, where approximately 400 international experts in Low-Mass Stars, Solar Physics, and Exoplanets meet every other year to exchange ideas in a cross-disciplinary and friendly environment. Bonas is certainly not adapted anymore to host what became a major conference, but we will have CS 21 a stone throw away from there in Toulouse, where attendees will enjoy a certain lifestyle that - fortunately - has not change over the last forty years!
