This page provides information on the 3rd CoRoT/ESTA Meeting. For further details, please see the following sections (below) on;

CoRoT Evolution and Seismic Tools Activity
Workshop on Model Comparison

26-27 September 2005

Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur, Nice - France

Following the meeting in Toulouse it is now essential to define a road map for the model comparisons, having the 9th CoRoT Week in mind. In order to evaluate where we are and what must be done in the next three months a dedicated workshop is necessary. Such a meeting will allow us to define what are the specific tasks (and who will be working on them) that must be completed before the next CoRoT Week.

With these objectives, a meeting of the ESTA group has taken place in the Nice Observatory, lasting for two days, on the 26-27 September 2005.
