From Young Disks to Planets:
March 7 - 10, 2005
The conference will cover topics bracketing the evolutionary stages between circumstellar disk formation, the stage during which the initial conditions for planet formation are set, and the fully formed planetary system. This meeting will emphasize new-generation observations, including long baseline spatial interferometers and space infrared observatories. By bringing together recent findings from techniques which probe various disk regimes and emission mechanisms, as well as the latest theoretical and modelling developments in these areas, we will address the physics and evolution of these pre-planetary environments.
The conference will include one review talk in each topical session, plus invited and contributed talks. Posters may also be contributed and will remain on display for the duration of the conference, and each poster presenter will have a chance to describe their work through 1-minute, 1-viewgraph poster summaries.
A final agenda will be distributed soon, an registration will then be opened. If you have any questions, to express interest, or to request to receive further announcements, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
