April 18-22, 2016
The workshop's inter-disciplinary scope aimed at bridging various communities: 1) cosmochemists, who study meteoritic samples from our own solar system, 2) (sub-) millimetre astronomers, who measure the distribution of dust and gas of star-forming regions and planet- forming discs and their physics (density, temperature, kinematics) and chemistry, 3) disc modellers, who describe the complex photo-chemical structure of parametric static discs to fit these to observation, 4) computational astrophysicists, who attempt to decipher the dynamical structure of magnetised gaseous discs, and the effects the resulting internal structure has on the aerodynamic re-distribution of embedded solids, 5) theoreticians in planet formation theory, who aim to piece it all together eventually arriving at a coherent holistic picture of the architectures of planetary systems discovered by 6) the exoplanet observers, who provide us with unprecedented samples of exoplanet worlds. Combining these diverse fields allowed to shed light onto the riddles that pave the way for a comprehensive understanding of the formation, evolution, and dynamics of young solar systems.
In addition to the Sant Cugat Forum, this Workshop was co-sponsored by the Villum Foundation, and the Nield Bohr International Academy.
