The fifth of the biennial conferences devoted to "Hot subdwarf stars and related objects" is to be held 25-29 July 2011, in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Focus areas of past meetings have included the atmospheres, internal structure and evolution of hot subdwarfs, population synthesis, and asteroseismology. Participants are welcome to submit poster or oral contributions on these or related topics, e.g. extended horizontal branch stars in clusters, the UV upturns in galaxies and bulges, asteroseismology with COROT or KEPLER, etc.

The meeting will be hosted by the University of the Western Cape, and will mark the 65th birthday of David Kilkenny, recognising more than four decades of his contributions to the field.
