Ultra high-precision space photometry, such as that provided by MOST, CoRoT, Kepler, or BRITE, has revolutionized the study of stars and planets beyond our solar system. The goal of the first joint CoRoT symposium and KASC meeting is to offer a fast paced but comprehensive view of the recent progress in the study of stellar systems and their components: stars and planets. The ambition of this conference is to be the dawn of new collaborations between projects, a starting point to solve some of the hot and pressing open questions on the understanding of stellar and planetary systems and their environment.
