origin of stars


This interdisciplinary conference will explore the deep links between the processes of star and planet formation, highlighting recent advances in observations (Kepler, Herschell), theory, and computation

The conference features 9 interdisciplinary and interleaved sessions, each with an invited Review Speaker, who will set up the session with a true review of the current state of that field, as well a Keynote Speaker who will focus more on their own contributions to the subject. About 60% of the talks will be contributed - so please register as early as you can. The SOC will make decisions about the contributed talks schedule soon after April 15, 2012. Three days will also feature Discussion sessions at day's end, meant to provide a stimulating forum for the key results and issues raised in the presentations.
