Topics:

  • (Giant) molecular clouds (distribution, structure, mass, kinematics, lifetime, formation/evolution) and star formation in the Milky Way
  • ISM properties and diagnostics (physical conditions, excitation mechanisms, atomic-molecular transition, PDRs, XDRs, chemistry)
  • Atomic and molecular gas in galaxies (Magellanic Clouds; nearby dwarfs, spirals, early-types; cooling flows; radio galaxies; high-redshift galaxies; epoch of reionisation)
  • Dust (formation and evolution, PAHs, FIR/sub-mm lines)
  • Comparison with other star formation tracers (X-ray, UV, optical/NIR emission lines, etc)
  • Star Formation (star formation laws, efficiency, history)
  • Gas accretion, feedback, outflows
