The study of the dynamic Universe on all astronomical scales allows us to pinpoint the underlying physical processes that not only lead to the formation of stars and planets from the turbulent interstellar medium, but also determine the structure of the Universe on the largest observable scales. 

The meeting is organised in honour of Professor Andi Burkert and to celebrate his 60th birthday.

The workshop highlights the various dynamical processes covered by Andi's work and brings together leading international senior and junior researchers on the subjects.

The topics that will be covered in the meeting are:

  • star and planet formation
  • the Galactic Centre
  • the ISM in extreme environments
  • Galaxy evolution
  • Cosmology

There will be plenty of time for discussion and interaction.

Members of Max Planck Institutes will receive partial funding (40% of the costs) from the Schloesmann foundation and do not have to pay VAT for accommodation and meals.

Scientific Organising Committee:
Klaus Dolag, Ralf Klessen, Thorsten Naab, Elena D’Onghia, Marc Schartmann, Linda Tacconi, Fabian Heitsch, Stefanie Walch-Gassner, Alyssa Goodman
