    The Cool, Cooler and Cold - Cluster Cooling Flows in a New Light
    from 8 Sep 2008 through 12 Sep 2008

 
In the past decade has seen massive progress in the observational evidence for the interconnection between gas cooling and re-heating in cluster cores, particularly in the X-ray, mid-infrared and sub-mm regimes
In the past decade has seen massive progress in the observational evidence for the 
interconnection between gas cooling and re-heating in cluster cores, particularly in the 
X-ray, mid-infrared and sub-mm regimes. We would like to take the opportunity just 
before the launch of Herschel, ESAs new far-infrared space observatory, to take 
stock of the latest observational and theoretical work on cooling flows. With new 
facilities such as ALMA and SOFIA also beginning operations, we see the workshop 
as an opportunity to stimulate the best proposals and collaborations to exploit these 
new opportunities.
 
We intend to draw together the key workers in this diverse area with a particular 
emphasis in bringing together theorists and observers to identify a common strategy 
for the next decade. We are keen to ensure that as many current PhD students 
working in this area attend.
 
The workshop aims to combine talks with large and small group discussions throughout 
the week to identify areas where future effort would be most effective and to publicise 
pre-publication results. We would like most participants to talk for 20-30mins on their 
latest work.
