The Origins of Stars and Their Planetary Systems
10 - 15 June, 2012
Origins Institute, Hamilton, Canada
The conference featured 9 interdisciplinary and interleaved sessions, each with an invited Review Speaker, who set up the session with a true review of the current state of that field, as well as a Keynote Speaker who focused more on their own contributions to the subject. Three days also featured Discussion sessions at day's end, meant to provide a stimulating forum for the key results and issues raised in the presentations.
