Wheel of Star Formation: A conference dedicated to Prof. Jan Palouš

14th September 2020   -   18th September 2020
Prague, Czech Republic


This is a meeting to celebrate the life-time work and contributions to astronomy of Jan Palouš. Among other topics that have always interested Jan is the gas cycle in galaxies, in particular how star formation influences their evolution. With the advance of new instruments and computational capacities in the recent years, there have been many unexpected observational discoveries and sophisticated simulations. This brings a desire to think anew about these topics, and try to connect these sometimes conflicting findings with the greater picture of star formation as a key element in the evolution of the Universe. The goal of the meeting is to gather researchers actively working in the field, to present and discuss the up-to-date advances and discoveries, as well as identify the important questions and initiate discussions on their solution strategies.
