This interdisciplinary conference will explore the deep links between the processes of star and planet formation, highlighting recent advances in observations (Kepler, Herschell), theory, and computation

The conference features 9 interdisciplinary and interleaved sessions, each with an invited Review Speaker, who will set up the session with a true review of the current state of that field, as well a Keynote Speaker who will focus more on their own contributions to the subject. About 60% of the talks will be contributed.
