Astrochemistry: Past, Present and Future

10th July 2018 - 13th July 2018
Caltech, Pasadena, CA, United States


Astrochemistry, the study of molecules in astrophysical environments, has become an invaluable part of astrophysical studies ranging from planet forming disks to high-z galaxies. This development was made possible by the arrival of a suite of new telescopes in the past decade — Spitzer, Herschel and ALMA – and was realized by the pioneering work and ongoing leadership by Ewine van Dishoeck. To honor Ewine’s outstanding contributions to astrochemistry this 4-day meeting will review the successes in astrochemistry in unveiling star and planet formation, present ongoing astrochemical theoretical and laboratory studies, and observational investigations focused on ALMA, and peer into the future of astrochemistry in the age of JWST.
