Circumstellar disks and planets

This working group was active during OPTICON/FP7 (2009-2012, contract nº 226604).

Workshop:

Circumstellar Disks and Planets
Sciences Cases for the second generation VLTI instrumentation

The goal of this workshop is to review the field of circumstellar disks and planets and put resulting specific scientific goals for the 2nd generation VLTI instrumentation in context with available and planned facilities and instrumentation, exploiting synergies and complementarities.

The workshop took place at the Christian Albrechts University of Kiel (Germany) on May 26-28, 2010.

The workshop is funded through the "Optical Interferometry Networking Activity" (OPTICON/FP7).

The results of the workshop will be published in The Astronomy & Astrophysics Review. A preprint is available in astroph.
