We are pleased to announce the "Unveiling the interiors of the stars to grasp stellar populations" Conference to be held in Cefalù, Sicily (Italy), from September 23 to 27, 2024.

In recent decades, advancements in stellar evolution modeling, facilitated by high-performance computers, have allowed scientists to explore the evolution of stars beyond main sequence and giant stages. Understanding physical mechanisms like convection, opacities, and mass loss has paved the way for extending these models to various astronomical fields, including Galactic Archaeology and modern Asteroseismology. This conference aims to gather experts to discuss recent developments in star evolution studies, emphasizing the synergy between understanding stellar interiors, oscillation properties, and populations. The role of stellar models and data from space missions like Kepler, Tess, Gaia, and Plato will be central to the discussions.

This Conference is organized in the memory of Prof. Italo Mazzitelli, who sadly passed away in March 2023. We are delighted and honored to have witnessed of his valuable contribution to this field.
