*********************************************************************
CELEBRATING THE FIRST 40 YEARS OF ALEXANDER TIELENS' CONTRIBUTION TO SCIENCE:
THE PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY OF THE ISM
https://tielens2019.sciencesconf.org/
**********************************************************************

Venue
The symposium will be held 2-6 September 2019 in the historical Congres du Palais des Papes, Avignon, France (http://www.avignon-congres.com/).

Rational
Xander Tielens has been driving research in the fields of interstellar physics and chemistry and the cosmic cycle of matter with outstanding contributions for 40 years. With this meeting, we wish to celebrate his scientific achievements and discuss future research directions opened up by his contributions.

The meeting will focus on the fields strongly influenced by Xander involving the physical and chemical processes that control the interstellar medium and its life cycle: PDRs, interstellar and circumstellar dust, PAHs, ices and astrochemistry. We will especially emphasize future opportunities offered by the powerful telescopes at our disposal such as, for example, ALMA, SOFIA, and JWST. The meeting will consist of invited reviews, invited and contributed talks, and posters.

Key dates
February 11: Opening of the registration and abstract submission on the symposium website
