Thirty years of beta Pic and debris disks studies

The outline of the conference is given below.


  • from IRAS excess to debris disks
  • young associations

The beta Pic system 

  • beta Pic properties
  • gaz properties
  • dust properties
  • planet(s)
  • formation and dynamical history

Other debris disks

  • descriptions, similarities/differences with beta Pic (what can the example of beta Pic bring for the study of these objects? what can the example of these objects bring for the study of beta Pic ?)
  • BPMG stars
  • emblematic systems with IR excess
  • disks modeling results
  • connection between debris disks and planets

Next decade (beta Pic & other stars with debris disks)

  • open questions
  • future observations and modeling
