Great Barriers in Planet Formation

21st July 2019 - 21st July 2019
Palm Cove, Queensland, Australia


We are made of dust. How does this dust collect in protoplanetary discs to form planets like the Earth and people like us? Since 2013 high-resolution observations of protoplanetary discs have been made with ALMA, VLT-SPHERE and other telescopes. Can we make sense of them? We aim to bring together theory and observations to understand how nature overcomes the `Great Barriers- in the planet formation process The conference will follow a 3-week program of activities on protoplanetary discs at Monash University in Melbourne as part of the EU-funded DUSTBUSTERS collaboration
