WORKSHOP ON THE EVOLVING SUN AND ITS INFLUENCE ON PLANETARY ENVIRONMENTS
Granada, Spain, 18-20 June, 2001

An international workshop on the changes of the Sun with time and their
effects on Earth, on the planetary environments and on the development of
life in the Solar System is to be held in Granada, Spain, 18-20 June, 2001.
 Topics will include the structure and evolution of the Sun, the solar
dynamo and magnetic activity, past and present solar irradiance, inferring
solar behavior from solar analogs of different ages, the Sun-climate
connection, paleo-climate models, life in the solar system, exosolar
planets, the Sun and Earth in the future, and new space missions to study
the Sun, planets and exosolar planets.

The workshop is supported by the Spanish Consejo Superior de
Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC) and the Instituto Nacional de Tecnica
Aeroespacial (INTA), through the Instituto de Astrofisica de Andalucia
(Granada) and the Centro de Astrobiologia (Madrid).

During the week previous to this meeting the First Eddington Workshop will
be held in the nearby town of Cordoba from 11 to 15 June 2001 (see
http://astro.esa.int/SA-general/Projects/Eddington/Eddi2001). Eddington
is an ESA space mission for asteroseismology and extrasolar planet hunting.
Transportation from Cordoba to Granada will be provided for those
participating in both events.

as well as the Hubble Space Telescope and numerous ground-based and 
theoretical studies.
