The fourth in a series of conferences held every five years on cosmic dust, following successful meetings in Colorado, USA (2003), in Heidelberg, Germany (2008), and in Taipei, Taiwan (2013).

The Herschel Space Observatory

Despite its fundamental importance to so much of the cosmos, we still do not know where most dust originates, what its mineralogy is, what its properties in different environments are, or its physics and chemistry in the interstellar medium. These questions are under active study, and significant progress has been made over the past decade with new instrumentation, laboratory results, and theoretical modeling.

This conference will bring together experts on dust and dust practitioners from all different backgrounds: meteoritics, interplanetary dust, protoplanets, star-formation, AGB stars and Planetary Nebulae, dust in galaxies, supernovae, and AGN.

The conference is timed to lay out the remarkable progress on dust since the Herschel (pictured above) and Planck missions ended and their legacies have begun to be exploited, since ALMA began real science operations over the previous five years, and to prepare for the launch of JWST.

Invited speakers include:

Susanne Aalto, Almudena Alonso-Herrero, Mike Barlow, John Bradley, Annalisa De Cia, Ilse De Looze, Bruce Draine, Maud Galametz, Susanne Höfner, Sebastian Hönig, Akio Inoue, Cornelia Jäger, Margaret Meixner, Karin Sandstrom, Raffaella Schneider, Matt Smith, Sundar Srinivasan, Zahed Wahhaj, Gail Zasowski
