1.   Star Formation Workshop 


Item 1.  Star Formation in the Era of Three Great Observatories

                            A workshop sponsored by 
                           the Chandra X-ray Center
                Co-Sponsored by The Spitzer Science Center
                           hosted in Cambridge, MA
                             July 13-15, 2005


This is a second announcement for the Workshop on "Star Formation in 
the Era of Three Great Observatories" to bring you an update and 
remind you of upcoming deadlines.

  * DEADLINE: Registration and Abstract Submission deadline is May 6.
  * Registration fee: There is no registration fee
  * Book your hotel room: conference rates are available through June 12

The goal of the workshop is to review topics in star-formation
which are inherently multiwavelength, and to both define the
current state of knowledge and the points of current controversy
where new observations are most needed.  We plan to focus on topics 
for which the Great Observatories have the most to contribute during 
this unique period of simultaneous operation.  We will also consider 
observations from other facilities as well as theoretical work.
We anticipate coverage of galactic and local-group star forming
regions and potentially galaxies of the local group. We hope to 
come away with a list of future strategies and goals to be 
presented to NASA and the project leaders of each of the three telescopes.

1. Participants and Registration

The registration and abstract deadline is May 6.

Please register at: 
There is no registration fee.
There will be room for 48 posters which will be displayed for the whole
length of the meeting.

2. Presentations

Abstracts can be submitted via the web-based registration form.

We have already received a large number of requests for oral presentations,
and we will try to accommodate as many as possible. We expect that some
presentations will have to be posters. Abstracts received by the
May 6 deadline will receive priority.  

Speakers are requested to use a common presentation file format, 
such as pdf, postscript, or Powerpoint.  We hope to be able to post 
most of the talks on the meeting web site as
PDF files. The abstracts will be made available via ADS.

Invited Speakers:
Lori Allen, Bernhard Brandl, Nuria Calvet, Bruce Elmegreen, 
Eric Feigelson, Marc Gagne, Lee Hartmann, William Herbst, Paul Ho, 
Thierry Montmerle, Debra Padgett, Steve Strom, Fred Walter, Harold Yorke 

The Scientific Organizing Committee: 
Scott Wolk (Chair), Jeremy Drake, Nancy Evans, Dave Huenemoerder,
Ray Jayawardhana, Claus Leitherer, Tom  Megeath, Norbert Schulz, 
John Stauffer, Leisa Townsley, George Rieke
