ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The matter between stars has a rich and complex structure across a vast range of scales. The physical properties of this interstellar medium (ISM) are controlled by the interplay of several mechanisms, such as turbulence, magnetic fields, and the feedback from stars and protostars. The ISM is constantly providing the material and conditions to form new stars, and at the same time being affected and enriched by those that already exist.

In the past decades there have been great advances in the understanding of the ISM, from observations, theory and simulations. The aim of this conference is to bring together experts in a broad range of areas of research, to summarize the recent progress and to prepare for the new challenges that the new generation of observatories will bring.

 

TOPICS TO BE COVERED

The main topics that will be covered are:

 

ISM dynamics and chemistry

Winds and outflows

Star formation and magnetic fields

Turbulence
