Star Formation Workshop 2015, From Clouds to Cores

1. Major Topics at the Workshop

The "Star Formation Workshop 2015" will be held on June 29th - July 1st, 2015 in Mitaka, Tokyo, Japan. The aim of the workshop is to bring together theorists and observers working on star formation, who would address the most recent advances in our knowledge of cloud evolution, cloud structure, and star formation. The workshop also aims at overviewing the Asia research activity on star formation, fostering close collaboration within East Asia.
The meeting consists of several invited talks (30min including 5min for Q&A), and contributed papers. We will select some for contributed talks (15min + 5min Q&A) and others as posters. Selection of contributed talks will be done by organizing committee by the end of May.
