We are made of dust. How does this dust collect in protoplanetary discs to form planets like the Earth and people like us?
Since 2013 high-resolution observations of protoplanetary discs have been made with ALMA, VLT-SPHERE and other telescopes. Can we make sense of them? We aim to bring together theory and observations to understand how nature overcomes the `Great Barriers' in the planet formation process
The conference will follow a 3-week program of activities on protoplanetary discs at Monash University in Melbourne as part of the EU-funded DUSTBUSTERS collaboration
