Star Formation in Different Environments

Starts: 25 July, 2016

Ends: 29 July, 2016


07 Science Avenue, Ghenh Rang, Quy Nhon, Binh Dinh, Vietnam


This is the first conference in star formation in Vietnam.
The last few years have changed drastically the landscape of star formation research, thanks to the successful operations of Herschel Space Observatory, ALMA, JCMT, PdBI, IRAM 30m, SMA…and the new development in numerical simulations and theory. We aim at to bringing together theorists and observers working on star formation, who would address the most recent advances in our knowledge of filament, core, cloud evolution and their interconnection. The conference will target to all aspects of star formation, including low-mass star formation, massive star formation, filamentary structure, giant molecular clouds, and galaxy-scale star formation. The workshop also aims at fostering close collaboration via smaller size focus groups.

The meeting consists of several invited talks (25min including 5min for Q&A), contributed talk (15min including 5min for Q&A), and posters. Selection of contributed talks will be done by the SOC by the end of May 2016. There will be time for focus group meetings and a half-day excursion. For young astronomers from developing countries, there will be also two days star formation bootcamp prior to the conference which cover fundamental knowledge of star formation.
