    • Recent news of IRAM, A.Gusdorf (LPENS)
    • High resolution far-IR spectroscopy at SOLEIL synchrotron in support for astrophysical detections, present and future developements, O.Pirali (ISMO)

In addition, there will be 24 contributed talks

Posters will be put on the web-site of the conference in PDF format the week before the conference. Poster contributers will also have the possibility to record a 3 to 5 minutes video, which will be made available to the community also the week before the conference. This would replace the flash poster sessions.

4 three-hours workshops on the following subjects were initially selected:


  • Astrobiology at PCMI (details)

  • High-redshift galaxies chemistry (details)

  • Understanding kinematic signatures from cloud collapse to planet formation: what are the current chemo-dynamical modeling challenges? (details)
  • The ionization fraction of the interstellar medium (details)

The workshops will not happen in virtual format.Two of the four organizing committees ("Understanding kinematic signatures from cloud collapse to planet formation: what are the current chemo-dynamical modeling challenges?" and "The ionization fraction of the interstellar medium") agreed to organize these workshops later in 2020 or in 2021. There will be   teaser talk for these. The two remaining committees preferred to resubmit workshop propositions for the 2022 conference.

Finally, there will be an outreach conference in French:

Outreach conference:

  • "Du MIS aux systèmes planétaires: évolution de la matière organique vers le vivant"
