The Crete NATO Advanced Study Institutes on Star Formation in 1990 and 1998, organized by Charles Lada and Nick Kylafis, were a landmark in the development of the star and planet formation community.
Many of the attendants of these schools are now well-established researchers across the world, pushing the boundaries of the field forward with a new generation of telescopes and simulations.
The Crete III conference, to be organized in Crete in September 2019, will be a celebration of star formation research, its community, and in particular, the career of Prof. Charles Lada and its impact on the field.
The program will cover research on:
• Molecular clouds
• Dense cores
• Disks and outflows
• YSO classification
• Embedded clusters
• Star formation rates and efficiencies in the Milky Way and beyond
Looking forward to seeing you in Crete!
