The Astrobiology group at Arizona State University, one of the NAI’s 15 research teams, is proud to sponsor a Workshop Without Walls entitled “Stellar Stoichiometry”, on April 11-12, 2013. In this workshop we examine the growing evidence that elemental abundance ratios of stars vary considerably from solar, and discuss the consequences of elemental variability on the existence and habitability of planets. To this end we are bringing together many of the world’s leading stellar spectroscopists to figure out why abundance ratios derived by different groups vary significantly, and to figure out what are the true intrinsic variations.

The workshop can be attended in person at ASU or virtually, anywhere in the world. There is no registration fee to attend, but please register and view the schedule and participant list at
