CELEBRATING THE FIRST 40 YEARS OF ALEXANDER TIELENS’ CONTRIBUTION TO SCIENCE:
THE PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY OF THE ISM.

 

Xander Tielens has been driving research in the fields of interstellar physics and chemistry and the cosmic cycle of matter with outstanding contributions for 40 years. With this meeting, we wish to celebrate his scientific achievements and discuss future research directions opened up by his contributions.

The meeting will focus on the fields strongly influenced by Xander involving the physical and chemical processes that control the interstellar medium and its life cycle:

  • PDR 
  • Interstellar and circumstellar dust grains
  • PAHs
  • Ices
  • Astrochemistry 

The meeting will consist of invited reviews, invited and contributed talks, and posters.  We will especially emphasize future opportunities offered by the powerful telescopes at our disposal such as, for example, ALMA, SOFIA, and JWST. 

The meeting will take place in the Palais des Papes in Avignon from 2nd to 6th September 2019.
