Multiplicity in Star Formation

An international workshop in Toronto

co-sponsored by
UofT Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics
and Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics

with additional support from
The Connaught Committee of the University of Toronto

The role of multiplicity in star and planet formation is at the forefront of current research and debate. This workshop aims to bring together observers and theorists to review the latest findings and stimulate discussion. The focus will be on low-mass star formation.

Subtopics include:
* multiplicity surveys of protostars, T Tauri stars and brown dwarfs
* multiplicity and Initial Mass Function
* multiples as testbeds for evolutionary models
* binarity vs. disks and jets
* planet formation in multiple systems

Our goal is to have an informal meeting, limited to 60 participants, with lots of short talks and time for interaction.

Dates:    Wednesday, 16 May 2007 - Friday, 18 May 2007

Location:    University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada
