About The Event

Monday, October 5-Wednesday, October 7, 2015

The goal of this workshop is to bring together the communities studying feedback in the Magellanic Clouds on both stellar and galactic scales. As the nearest gas-rich dwarf galaxies, the Magellanic Clouds offer a superb opportunity for studying the radiative, chemical, and mechanical feedback from star formation at high spatial resolution. We will discuss recent multi-wavelength observations that trace the impact of star formation in the Magellanic Clouds on the surrounding interstellar medium, and on the larger-scale evolution of the two galaxies. A broader objective is to explore the role of feedback in the Magellanic Clouds in the context of other dwarf galaxies. Topics to be addressed include:

MC stellar feedback in mechanical, radiative, and chemical forms
MC feedback on cluster scales
MC feedback on galactic scales
MC feedback from theoretical and numerical perspectives
MC feedback in the context of other dwarf galaxies

We will be soliciting invited talks, contributed talks, and posters for this event. Space permitting, workshop talks are open to astronomers from all local (Maryland & Washington DC) institutions without registering.

Abstract submission is now open. Abstracts (with titles) should be sent to fimc_workshop@stsci.edu, indicating whether the submission is a talk or a poster. All abstracts submitted by April 30, 2015 will receive full consideration by the SOC. Notification of abstract acceptance will be given on May 15, 2015. The registration fee is expected to be approximately $150.00 USD, and will cover breakfast and coffee breaks. A separate fee will be charged for the workshop dinner to be held on October 6, 2015.
