Celebrating the First 40 Years of Alexander Tielens’ Contribution to Science: the Physics and Chemistry of the ISM
The symposium will be held 2—6 September 2019 in the historical Congres du Palais des Papes, Avignon, France (http://www.avignon-congres.com/).
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.
February 11: Opening of the registration and abstract submission on the symposium website
June 1: Deadline of Abstract submission for oral contributions
June 15: Announcement of the selected oral contributions
June 20: Deadline of registration
Please note that the symposium participation is restricted to 120 persons, based on first-signed first-selected, so do not delay your registration!

Symposium “The Periodic Table Through Space and Time’’ September 9-13 of 2019, Saint-Petersburg (Russia)
The 2019 year is claimed as the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements. This initiative was
supported by many international organizations, including the International Astronomical Union (IAU). In September 9-13 of 2019, Saint-Petersburg (Russia) hosts the XXI Jubilee Mendeleev Congress on General and Applied Chemistry (http://mendeleev2019.ru/index.php/en/). During this Congress, in Sept. 10-13 of 2019, we hold the Symposium “The Periodic Table Through Space and Time’’.
Main topics of the Symposium are:
- Big Bang and stellar nucleosynthesis
- Chemical evolution of the Universe: observations and models
- Elemental abundances: a key to stellar physics
Invited speakers: to be confirmed.
Scientific Organizing Committee:
Ewine van DISHOECK (The Netherlands, Co-Chair), Boris SHUSTOV (Co-Chair, Russia), Lyudmila MASHONKINA (Russia, Scientific Secretary), Sergey BLINNIKOV(Russia), John
COWAN (USA), Charles Cowley (USA), Alexander DOLGOV (Russia), Nicolas GREVESSE (Belgium), John LANDSTREET (Canada), Alexander LUTOVINOV (Russia), Ken'ichi NOMOTO (Japan), Nikos PRANTZOS (France), Friedrich-Karl THIELEMANN (Switzerland), Dmitry WIEBE (Russia), Gang ZHAO (China).
On behalf of the Organizing Committee of Congress and the SOC of the Symposium we are pleased to invite academic and university researchers, postgraduate students, and students to participate in the Symposium “The Periodic Table Through Space and Time’’.
The online registration and abstracts submission is now opened!
