Resumo

The variable activity of stars such as the Sun is mediated via stellar magnetic fields, radiative and energetic particle fluxes, stellar winds and magnetic storms. This activity influences planetary atmospheres, climate and habitability. Studies of this intimate relationship between the parent star, its astrosphere (i.e., the equivalent of the heliosphere) and the planets that it hosts have reached a certain level of maturity within our own Solar System - fuelled both by advances in theoretical modelling and a host of satellites that observe the Sun-Earth system. Based on this understanding the first attempts are being made to characterize the interactions between stars and planets and their coupled evolution, which have relevance for habitability and the search for habitable planets. The meeting is IAU Symposium 328, one of only 9 symposia that are competitively selected by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) each year. It is the only solar-terrestrial symposium planned for 2016. This Symposium will bring together scientists from diverse, interdisciplinary scientific areas such as solar, stellar and planetary physics, atmospheric and climate physics and astrobiology to review the current state of our understanding of solar and stellar environments. The Symposium will also fertilize exchange of ideas and identify outstanding issues tackling which necessitates coordinated scientific efforts. (AU)
