Centro de Astrofísica da Universidade do Porto
16-18 September 2009, Ponte de Lima, Portugal

The workshop will be centred on the seismic study of convective regions, mixing, ionization zones, rotation, etc., with particular emphasis on how seismic tools for the Sun and for other stars can be combined or adapted in order to improve our capacity to probe the physics of the Sun and stars.

Three Working sessions will be organized. The topics will be: 1) data analysis; 2) seismic probing of stellar rotation; 3) inference on solar / stellar cores and envelopes.
