Far-Infrared and Submillimeter Emission of the Interstellar Medium: Models meet extragalactic and Galactic Observations
Start date: 05 Nov 2007
Address: Physikzentrum, Bad Honnef, Germany
In the forthcoming years, new ground- and space based observatories with unprecedented sensitivity and high resolution will invigorate the research field that addresses the interplay between the interstellar medium and star formation. Herschel and SOFIA in particular will offer for the first time the possibility to observe spectrally resolved Extragalactic and Galactic FIR cooling lines of the ISM on a regular basis. The main goal of this workshop is to stimulate the exchange of knowledge on the structure and composition of the interstellar medium, near and far, bringing together modellers and observers.
