Astronomical Society of the Pacific Conference Series; Volume 497


As signaled by the subtitle, this manifestation of the conference focuses on complex atmospheres, binarity, dust, the cosmic matter cycle, external asymptotic giant branch (AGB) star populations, and perspectives arising from new instrumentation. The 59 talks and 55 poster papers explore such topics as mass loss and variability in evolved stars, imaging radio photospheres with the Jansky Very Large Array, thermohaline mixing and isotope ratios in AGB stars, photometric properties of carbon stars in the Small Magellanic Clouds, and spectroscopy surface brightness fluctuations: amplifying bright stars in unresolved stellar populations.
