Accretion in Stellar Systems


August 8-10th, 2018

Sheraton Commander
16 Garden St, Cambridge, MA


The workshop aims to bring together people working on accretion, outflows and related processes in diverse astrophysical objects, from protostars to cataclysmic variables to super-Eddington accretion in stellar mass black hole and neutron star binaries. The focus will be to understand how accretion and ejection work, how they affect stellar evolution, what important issues remain unanswered, and what are likely to be the most promising future research directions. The workshop will cover theory, simulations and observations, spanning the time domain, the entire electromagnetic spectrum, gravitational waves and energetic particles. A special session dedicated to the late Jeff McClintock's legacy to the field will also be held.
