Ice and Planet Formation

extrasolar_planetsThis workshop in Lund focuses on ice(s) and planet formation. Astrophysical ice has become an increasingly popular topic in the past years, inspired and driven by new observations of ices and vapour in molecular clouds and protoplanetary discs, models of dust coagulation and planet formation where ice plays an important role and current and upcoming laboratory experiments on ice collisions and ice deposition. The goal of the workshop is to bring together observers, experimentalists and theorists to discuss the present state-of-the-art of the field as well as future directions. The workshop will consist of contributed talks and posters, with ample time for discussion during extended breaks and poster sessions. The Ice and Planet Formation workshop will be held 15 – 17 May 2013 at Lund Observatory in Lund in Sweden. The workshop will start after lunch on Wednesday 15 May and end after lunch on Friday 17 May.
