Hi All,

The Sixth Annual GMT Community Science Meeting on the topic “Stars: 
Birth & Death” will be held in Hawaii September 13-15 2018. Further 
details are below.

This is a great meeting to start getting involved with Australia's 
next-generation optical facility and to encourage that some partial 
travel reimbursement may be provided for graduate students and postdocs 
(by GMTO).

Cheers, Sarah
(AAL GMT SAC Representative)

The Sixth Annual GMTO Community Science Meeting, /Stars: Birth and 
Death/, will be held at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu, Hawaii 
on September 13-15, 2018. Registration is free and partial travel 
support may be given to students and postdocs.

While stars spend most of their lives as stable, fusion-powered objects, 
stellar birth and death involve some of the most dramatic and diverse 
physical processes known to astrophysicists. Stellar beginnings are 
shrouded in dust and difficult to observe, and the next generation of 
large telescopes will offer transformative opportunities to understand 
this first chapter of the star formation story. Stellar death is often 
explosive, and a burgeoning swell of data on transient objects offers 
great opportunities for advancing our understanding of the last chapter 
of the stellar story. This conference brings together experts in the 
fields of star formation and stellar disruptions, eruptions and 
explosions. We will focus on key open questions that can be solved in 
the upcoming era of very large telescopes.

A PDF of the conference poster is attached. More information, including 
a list of invited speakers, can be found at our conference Web site:
