Star Formation: From Clouds to Discs. A Tribute to the Career of Lee Hartmann
18 Oct 2021 - 21 Oct 2021 • Malahide, Ireland
Organizer:
Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, Ireland
Abstract:
This conference will celebrate the career of Lee Hartmann, who has made enormous contributions to our field during his productive life. For over 3 decades Lee has been a leading pioneer in characterizing the physics of molecular clouds, stars and planet formation. His scientific breadth and impact can be seen in his studies on molecular cloud formation and cloud lifetimes. This has led to a change in our paradigm of star formation towards more rapid evolution. He has been among the first to recognize the importance of accretion and magnetic fields in the phenomena observed in young stars, and has led ground-breaking efforts characterizing these effects. As a tribute to Lee, but also recognizing that we stand on the threshold of a new era with the arrival of JWST, E-ELT and SKA, it is appropriate to take stock of the most fascinating developments in our field, emphasizing those areas where Lee has made significant contributions.

IAUS 361: Massive Stars Near and Far (Postponed from 2020).
08 May 2022 - 13 May 2022 • Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan, Ireland
Organizer:
International Astronomical Union (IAU)
Abstract:
The 361st International Astronomical Union (IAU) Symposium was planned to be held in Ballyconnell, Ireland in May 2020 (now rescheduled for May 2022). This international conference will bring together observational and theoretical astrophysicists to discuss all aspects of massive stars, their formation, evolution and ultimately their demise as supernovae. The special focus for this conference is on massive stars in the early Universe, how they lived and died, and how they compare with massive stars in our Galaxy.
