EPoS 2008 Discussing the future of the field (106 Registrations, 60 Participants)

Time: 28 July 2008 - 1 August 2008
Focus: The future of the field. Three dedicated sessions on Existing and New Roads for Early Phase Star Formation Research: Modeling, Theory, Observations helped to reach this goal.
Special Approach: Cover all relevant aspects but also allow for substantial discussion time.
Focus Groups: Three focus meetings had the topics:
Participating in Star Formation Taste Tests
The Role of Magnetic Fields in Star Formation
Space Missions for Star- and Planet Formation.
Result: Again, intense discussions revealed controversal views on many aspects of the stellar birth. No sign of a common paradigm had emerged since EPoS 2006.
