Born in Fire: Eruptive Stars and Planet Formation
An international workshopSeptember 24-27, 2024Santiago, Chile
September 24-27, 2024. Santiago, Chile.
Is there a link between the irregular accretion patterns seen in some young stars and the formation of planets? Do the mechanisms driving episodic accretion in eruptive stars hold clues to giant planet formation? What do observations of eruptive stars tell us about gravitational instabilities near young stars? This workshop is dedicated to exploring these emerging paradigms, aiming to connect planet formation with the dynamic world of episodically accreting stars. The workshop will facilitate collaboration among experts in eruptive stars, planet formation, and computational modeling. Through interdisciplinary discussions, we aim to nurture innovative solutions to age-old questions in the fields of star and planet formation.
Thanks to the NAASC Support for Conferences and Workshop program, as well as the YEMS Millennium Nucleus, we have secured funding that allow us to support the participation of early career researchers (ERC) and students in need of financial aid to attend. We will do our best to support as many people as we can.
We are currently in the process of determining the format and extent of our conference. While our current plan is to organize an in-person meeting, we are actively exploring the potential for a hybrid event. This involves assessing the availability of resources for hybrid setups at potential venues. We will keep you informed by posting updates here as we make decisions.
All participants must follow the NRAO Code of Conduct. The members of the Local Organizing Committee are designated as the contact points for all matters related to this code.
