Joint ESO, ALMA, NAOJ, NRAO Workshop:
ESO Vitacura, Santiago, Chile, 16–20 May 2016
Results from ALMA Long Baseline observations and from SPHERE, Gemini
Planet Imager (GPI) and other high-contrast adaptive optics (AO)
instruments have given a taste of what to expect over the next few years
in the fields of protoplanetary and debris discs, and planet formation.
For the first time observations of the regions where planets form are
achievable. The workshop will discuss the state-of-the-art results, offering a panchromatic view, with a balance between observations and theory. Discussions will be scheduled on how facilities, such as JWST, E-ELT and TMT, and advances in modeling, will advance the field of planetary formation.
