Hosted by the Chandra X-ray Center
at the Sheraton Commander Hotel
16 Garden St, Cambridge, MA

We are pleased to announce "Star Formation in the Era of Three Great Observatories", a workshop sponsored by the Chandra X-ray Center, co-sponsored by the Spitzer Science Center, and organized primarily by the CXC Director's Office.

The workshop will be held July 13-15, 2005 in Cambridge, Massachusetts at the Sheraton Commander hotel.

The goal of the workshop is to review topics in star-formation which are inherently multiwavelength, and to both define the current state of knowledge and the points of current controversy where new observations are most needed. We plan to focus on topics where the Great Observatories have the most to contribute during this unique period of simultaneous operation but observations from other facilities and theoretical models are also expected to contribute. We hope to come away with a useful set of goals and priorities for near-term observations with the three telescopes.


  • The ISM
  • Protostars
  • Disk Evolution
  • Rotation/saturation/dynamos
  • Clustering/populations
  • Multi-telescope studies in the Orion Star Forming complex and other star forming regions

There will be splinter sessions on disk evolution, rotation, populations and other selected topics.
