Scientific Meetings

The project organises a small number of short scientific meetings each year.

A conference, "H2 in Space", partly-funded by the project, is being held from 28th September 1999 to 1st October 1999. Topics include:

  • Physics of H2 and HD (spectroscopy, excitation, cooling)
  • Condensed states (ice, dimers)
  • Formation of H2 in laboratory experiments
  • Formation/destruction of H2 in space
  • Observations in the Infra-red and UV
  • Shock waves, photo-dissociation regions
  • Extragalactic H2 and the Hubble sequence
  • Primordial H2 and the first structures

Further information can be obtained from their Web site.
