Raising the Veil on Star Formation Near and Far: A Conference in Honour of Richard Hills

Published: 18 Sep 2023

Abstract submission is now open for the conference "Raising the veil on star formation near and far: a conference in honour of Richard Hills". This conference will bring together scientists from multiple areas to discuss the recent developments in understanding star formation both in our Galaxy and across the cosmic epochs, with focus on its elusive and obscured components. It will also be an occasion to commemorate the fundamental contribution in these areas by the late Richard Hills, former ALMA Project Scientist, about two years after his passing. Richard guided the development of instrumentation and observatories that have shaped our understanding of the cold and dusty Universe over the last 50 years both through his insightful technical understanding and his broad scientific knowledge of multiple areas of astrophysics.

The conference will take place 22-26 April 2024 at the Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge, and online. Registration deadline is 30th of November 2023. Registration for in-person attendance will be limited to 100 participants.
