First Light in a new Era of Astrophysics

Asteroseismology has become a well established field with far reaching implications in many areas of astrophysics thanks to the advent of space-borne missions. TASC4/KASC11 will be the first meeting after the launch of the TESS satellite and will particularly focus on its prospects for breakthrough science in the fields of stellar evolution, exoplanet research, and Galactic archaeology. It will review the latest highlights from Kepler and K2 and how the challenges presented by these results can be addressed in the dawn of a new era of astrophysical research at a much larger scale. The workshop will also provide sessions for discussion within TASC working groups and coordinated activities on the status of the preparatory work for the imminent data flow from TESS in the framework of the major themes and opportunities discussed during the week.
