The European Southern Observatory (ESO) is presently constructing its Very Large Telescope (VLT), an array of 4 eight meter telescopes. To keep the VLT observatory and its scientific instrumentation in phase with the evolution of astronomical research ESO is organizing selected workshops dedicated to specialized fields of current research. In this context we are happy to announce a workshop devoted to THE ROLE OF DUST IN THE FORMATION OF STARS to be held Sept. 11-14, 1995, at ESO headquarters in Garching b. München (Germany). The workshop will start on Monday Sept. 11th at 9h00 and will end on Thursday, Sept. 14th at 17h00. The objective of the workshop is to have an exchange between observers, experimentalists and theoreticians. The discussion shall encompass the status of observations and observational techniques, laboratory experiments and theoretical research with emphasis on what is needed to test predictions and to constrain models. The SCIENTIFIC ORGANIZATION of the workshop will be by: - Rolf Chini and Endrik Krügel, MPIfR, Bonn, Germany - Thomas Henning, MPG-AG Dust and Star Formation, Jena, Germany - John Mathis, Univ. Wisconsin, Madison, USA - Antonella Natta, Oss. Astronomico Arcetri, Italy - Jean-Loup Puget, IAS, Orsay, France - Alexander Tielens, NASA Ames, Moffet Field, USA - Nikolai Voshchinnikov, Astron. Inst., St. Petersburg, Russia The workshop will be ORGANIZED LOCALLY by: - Hans Ulrich Käufl, ESO, Garching, Germany - Ralf Siebenmorgen, ESA/ESTEC, Nordwijk, The Netherlands As an introduction to the sessions a series of REVIEW TALKS is planned. Submission of and proposals for review talks from the community are still strongly encouraged. There will be a series of contributed oral presentations of about 20-30 min. Additional papers may be given as posters. Speakers are expected to present new and original results and the organizers are committed to publish the proceedings shortly after the workshop. The workshop is restricted to app. 110 participants. The PROCEEDINGS of this meeting will be published by Springer Verlag as part of a new ESO Scientific Workshop series. Instructions for the preparation of manuscripts will be distributed in due time. Registered participants will automatically receive a copy of the Proceedings. There will be a REGISTRATION FEE of DM 150.00 payable at the meeting. The fee covers the cost for a copy of the proceedings, an informal reception at ESO, coffee and refreshments during the meeting and transportation between the hotels and the workshop venue. Please find at the end of this message a note on the electronic online information services for this conference. The workshop shall address the following topics: 0. Introduction - short presentation of the VLT project - short presentation of the VLT scientific instrumentation I. Present observations of YSOs - suspected protostars and protostellar clumps, - T Tauri stars, - Herbig Ae/Be stars, - OB stars associated with ultracompact HII regions, - YSO in binary (tertiary?) systems, infrared companions, - circumstellar disks, - Vega-type stars II. Properties of dust around YSO. - difference in dust properties as compared to the ISM, - fluffy grains and fractal structures, dust agglomerates, - electrical charging of dust in the radiation field of YSOs - interpretation of spectral dust features such as e.g. PAHs, dirty ice, "diamonds", silicates III. Processing of dust in YSO - grain coagulation - physics of the grain surface - outgassing of mantles and its influence to the surrounding gas chemistry - interaction of dust with shocks and MHD waves - the case of circumstellar disks IV. Models - radiative transfer and synthetic spectra - evolutionary scenarios V. Dust as a catalytic agent for star formation - interaction of charged grain components with protostellar clouds - influence on the magnetohydrodynamic support of the cloud and the collapse of protostellar clumpsGo to ESO homepage.
