    WorkPlaNS: WORKshop for PLAnetary Nebulae observationS
    from 25 Jan 2016 through 29 Jan 2016

 

The WorkPlaNS sets up on previous meetings with the goal of building up a network of planetary nebulae (PNe) experts. The specific aims of this workshop are i) to discuss the most relevant topics to be investigated by the community in the following years, ii) to set up an excellent network of researchers with complementary expertises to prepare high-level observing proposals for the most modern telescopes available at present (ALMA, Chandra, SOFIA, HST, ...) to address those topics, and iii) to develop strategies for future observatories (JWST). We plan to achieve these goals by bringing together experts in distinctive sub-areas of the PNe research field, namely: the analysis and interpretation of PNe observational data, the theoretical modelling of gas and dust emission, the evolution from AGB stars (PNe progenitors) to PNe, and the instrumentation and technical characteristics of the relevant observatories.

 

Scientific review talks will open the workshop to set the stage for the discussion on the key questions to be tackled by the community. They will be followed by review talks on the capabilities of the most modern and competitive telescopes. A significant time of the workshop will be devoted to discussions, with the ultimate goal of preparing the outlines for observing proposals during the week.
