Star Cluster Formation : Mapping the first few Myrs

Dans le cadre du projet Européen StarFormMapper (SFM), dont l’IPAG est partenaire, un workshop international est organisé dans les locaux de l’IMAG, sur le campus universitaire de Grenoble.

Workshop on the formation and early evolution of star clusters. This will provide a forum for the star formation community to discuss the big issues of this field. Combining observation and theory, and with a particular emphasis on results obtained from Gaia DR2, topics will include : initial conditions of stars and gas in stellar cluster formation ; spatial and kinematic properties of newly formed/active massive star cluster regions, open clusters and stellar associations ; and early dynamical evolution and simulations of massive star cluster regions.

This is the second workshop hosted by the StarFormMapper (SFM) project, an EU Horizon2020 funded collaboration between the University of Leeds, University of Cardiff, University Grenoble Alps and Quasar Science Resources SL. The key aim of the project is to combine state-of-the-art numerical simulations with data from Gaia and Herschel and ground based surveys to constrain the mechanisms that underlie massive star and star cluster formation. Taken collectively, these facilities cover all stages from the formation of molecular cores, through the formation of stars, to the dispersal of the gas in young clusters. SFM is developing new automated statistical techniques to extract the full scientific value of these combined data, that will eventually be released as common user tools to the community. His scientific results will underpin the study of how all galaxies evolve.
