Please inform Eli, Mark, Steve, or Grant if you plan to attend (we hope you will!)


The underlying motivation for this meeting is to examine how star formation studies at different scales relate or differ from one another.

After the presentation sessions we will discuss this objective to highlight long-standing problems in different fields of star formation and hopefully foster new collaborative projects.

Ideally, talks should contain (1) research results that you would like to share and (2) how these results relate to other "regimes" (e.g., redshift, wavelength, etc.) of star formation studies.

You are welcome to bring your slides on a flash drive, or use your own laptop. Ideally, talks should be readied on the presenting laptop during the coffee break before your session, or (less ideal) during the question time of the previous presenter. We will have both PC and Mac host laptops, as well as the ability to show Powerpoint, Keynote, and PDF slides.

While space in the Council Room can be a bit tight, all are welcome to attend (even if you are not giving a talk yourself). The tone of the meeting is informal.
