Star Formation from Cores to Clusters

We aim to bring together astronomers who are pursuing a variety of strategies to contribute in answering the question: “What constitutes a prototypical low-mass star forming region from core to cluster scales?” This question refers specifically to the formation of low-mass stars, but it also can incorporate, for example, higher-mass stars that form in environments shared with low-mass stars, parallels between low- and high-mass star formation, starless cores, brown dwarfs, planetary formation simultaneous with low-mass star formation, and related topics. We suggest that all contributions present observations (from any wavelength) and/or numerical simulation to provide a perspective that is crucial for a comprehensive understanding of low-mass star forming regions.

The timing of this meeting is designed to facilitate proposals for observations with ALMA and ESO facilities in 2017, also incorporating synergies among observers and theorists for such proposals.  We plan a workshop-environment that will include

  1. invited and contributed talks pertaining to five topical sessions;
  2. dedicated discussion time to synthesize information presented during each session;
  3. poster session;
  4. registration limited to approximately 70-80 participants to foster intimate dialogue;
  5. social activity to experience Chilean culture.

Sessions: (two invited speakers will present observations and theory, respectively, for each topic)

  1. Molecular clouds and star forming regions (formation, evolution, chemistry, structure)
  2. Pre- and protostellar cores
  3. Outflows, envelopes, first conditions of disk formation
  4. Earliest stages of the sub-stellar regime 
  5. Multiplicity at early stages of star formation, small clusters
