Conferences & Workshops

EPoS 2024 - Answering the Big Questions: Are we making progress?

  • Start: May 12, 2024
  • End: May 17, 2024
  • Location: Schloss Ringberg
  • Host: Jürgen Steinacker
  • Contact:
EPoS The Early Phase of Star Formation is a series of conferences for a field where still no paradigm has been established and consequently opposing views require intense debates. EPoS meetings have an unusual form: they devote substantial time to discussions after the presentations, after each session, in the poster sessions, and in focus groups. [more]

From Planet to Star Formation

  • Start: Mar 4, 2024
  • End: Mar 8, 2024
  • Location: Villa Vigoni, Menaggio, Italy
  • Host: Thomas Henning, Hubert Klahr, Myriam Benisty, Mario Flock, Ilaria Pascucci, Paola Caselli
  • Contact:
How did our planet earth develop? Could there be similar earths in our solar neighbourhood? Both theory and observation experts in the field of planetary development will come together in our workshop to answer these fascinating questions. [more]

Celebrating 30 Years of Protoplanetary Disk Chemistry: past, present, and future

  • Start: Feb 19, 2024
  • End: Feb 23, 2024
  • Location: Schloss Ringberg
  • Host: Anne Dutrey (LAB/Bordeaux University), Thomas Henning (MPIA), Dmitry Semenov (MPIA), Catherine Walsh (Leeds University)
  • Contact:
The aim of the workshop is to bring together around 50 researchers working on various aspects of protoplanetary disk chemistry including observations, modelling, and experiments in conjunction with researchers working on chemistry in the interstellar medium, star and disk formation and evolution, and planet formation.

Density Matters 2024:Uncovering the Formation, Interior Structure, and Evolution of Small Exoplanets

We will discuss the latest advances in terms of understanding the nature and formation of small exoplanets combining both observational and theoretical, individual and demographic perspectives. [more]

Physics of Star Formation: From Galactic scales to protostellar disks

  • Start: Dec 6, 2022
  • End: Dec 9, 2022
  • Location: Haus der Astronomie
  • Host: Henrik Beuther
The meeting will concentrate on the physical and chemical processes taking place over a broad range of scales, from extragalactic to individual star-forming regions, cores as well as protostellar disks. Evolutionary stages from the initial conditions for star formation to the end of the main accretion phase will be covered. [more]

Exoplanets in the 21st Century

  • Start: May 16, 2022 12:00 AM (Local Time Germany)
  • End: May 20, 2022 12:00 AM
  • Location: Max Planck Institute for Astronomy
The conference will gather experts on exoplanet studies in the fields of instrumentation, observations, and theory, from Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), California Institute of Technology (Caltech)m Max Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA), and the University of Heidelberg as well as invited external experts. The focus of the workshop will be on innovative methods to advance the field of exoplanet research in the upcoming decades. [more]

The Early Phase of Star Formation EPoS 2020 - Insights from Dynamics

EPoS 2022
  • Start: Apr 24, 2022 05:00 PM (Local Time Germany)

  • Location: Schloss Ringberg
  • Host: Jürgen Steinacker
  • Contact:
EPoS meetings cover all aspects, but EPoS 2022 was designed to make an effort to highlight the impact of dynamics.Some of the questions to be raised are: What are the key observational parameters, do we have the necessary tools to derive the physical quantities, how realistic can we trace the dynamical aspect in simulations and what can we learn from the evolution of the momentum vector field? [more]
