TITLE: "Astrophysical Anomalies and Axions: the physics potential of the International Axion Observatory"
ABSTRACT: I will give an update on the anomalies observed in the cooling of several stellar systems and on the interpretation in terms of axions and axion like particles (ALPs). I will show that the relevant region in the axion and ALP parameter space hinted by these anomalies can be probed by the next generation of axion detectors, in particular by the International Axion Observatory (IAXO).
