Extragalactic Molecules and Astrochemistry Workshop
Extragalactic mm and sub-mm astronomy is one of the many areas that will undergo substantial transformation with the unprecedented resolution, sensitivity and frequency range of ALMA - the Atacama Large Millimeter Array. Starburst and active galaxies can have their molecular, dust and star forming properties studied down to individual clouds. Processes and chemical signatures of enshrouded cores of AGNs can be probed in fine detail addressing issues on the starburst-AGN connection. Dust and gas distribution in distant galaxies can be studied through emission lines and continuum - and absorption line studies allow deep investigations of the chemical complexity at cosmological distances.
This informal workshop aims to discuss issues primarily on extragalactic molecules and astrochemistry - with a specific focus on ALMA and its Early Science phase. The strong connection and synergy between IR and mm/sub-mm astronomy is addressed through discussing synergy with Herschel and its recent results.
Invited speakers include
H. Spoon (Cornell, USA)
You are welcome to attend this workshop, but since space is limited please send an email to Susanne Aalto (saalto at chalmers dot se) or Francesco Costagliola (francesco dot costagliola at chalmers dot se) - before February 5.
