We stand on the threshold of a thrilling period of Asteroseismology. In a number of months' time, the Canadian small-satellite asteroseismology venture so much could be laun­ ched. Danish and French missions MONS and COROT should still keep on with, with the ESA undertaking Eddington following in 2007/8. Helioseismology has proved spec­ tacularly profitable in imaging the interior constitution and dynamics of the sunlight and probing the physics of the sun inside. Ground-based observations have detected solar-like oscillations on alpha Centauri A and different Sun-like stars, and diagnostics just like these utilized in helioseismology at the moment are getting used to check and constrain the physics and evolutionary kingdom of those stars. Multi-mode oscillations are being saw in an abundance of alternative stars, together with slowly pulsating B stars (SPB stars), delta Scuti stars, Ap stars and the pulsating white dwarfs. New sessions of pulsators stay found around the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram. For strong cause it used to be made up our minds to entitle our convention 'Asteroseismology around the HR Diagram' . but the demanding situations nonetheless to be confronted to make asteroseismology around the HR diagram a fact are bold. commentary, info research and conception all pose difficult difficulties to be conquer. In conceiving this assembly, the purpose of the organisers used to be to facilitate a cross-fertilization of rules and techniques among researchers engaged on diverse pulsators and with various components of workmanship. We enterprise to indicate that during this the convention used to be an outstanding success.

Firm integration and company engineering has turn into a focus of discussions prior to now few years with energetic contribution of many disciplines. .. The evolution from the concept that of CAD/CAM, via CIM to the built-in firm is predicated at the assumption that the built-in company can (and should still) be engineered simply as any advanced process can.

KURTZ Centre for Astrophysics, University of Central Lancashire, Preston PR1 2HE, UK Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de ['aMp, CNRS UMR 5572, Observatoire Midi Pyrenees, 14 avenue Edouard Belin, 31400 Toulouse, France Abstract. The present observational status of the 8 Sct stars, y Dor stars and roAp stars is discussed. The 8 Sct stars are the most intensively observed of the three groups, but it has become clear that there are severe problems in extracting asteroseismic information from them.

This means large programmes on small ground-based telescopes or dedicated space missions. 3. 1. PROCYON The F5 subgiant Procyon was observed by Brown et aI. (1991) with the AFOE spectrograph and an excess of power was detected around 1 mHz. Recent observations were conducted by Martic et aI. 5 mHz, a maximum amplitude of about 50 cm S-l and a most probable frequency spacing equal to 55 p,Hz. , these proceedings). No modes were identified due to (1) the low SIN detection, (2) the single-site window function, (3) the probably short time-life of the modes.

Both scientific goals will be achieved by performing highly accurate timeresolved photometry on a large number of stars, with a simple payload which is essentially a wide field broad-band photometer. , the size of convective regions, the structure of regions with steep changes in chemical composition and internal rotation and to therefore determine very accurate stellar ages. At the same time, planets as small as the Earth orbiting the target stars in the habitable zone will be found through the temporary drops in the stellar light caused by their transits.
