›Storm Cosmos, The Evolving ISM from Spitzer to Herschel and Beyond
Spectacular progress in space infrared and submillimeter facilities, in particular Herschel and Spitzer, has led to dramatic advances in our understanding of the evolving interstellar medium, both near and far. This conference is aimed at summarizing new results in this field, especially those driven by the new capabilities. The topics will cover a broad range of astrophysics, with a common thread of non-equilibrium physics on scales ranging from the smallest to the largest.
Astrochemistry of the ISM: shocks, PDRs and XDRs
Thermodynamics and Mechanics of the Interstellar Medium
The Coupling of Radiation, Gas and Dust
Evolution of ISM Properties over Galactic and Cosmic Timescales
