Laboratory EPOC

The aim of this workshop is to gather 15 experts of the field of formation of H2 on interstellar dust grains. Together, the invited participants will make a round table on this topic, including observational, modeling and experimental aspects. They will review existing works, sort where everybody agree and where there is still debate, and finally propose an article together, that will be submitted to Molecular Astrophysics.

We expect that this workshop will result in an overview of all the relevant astronomical questions, and of the experimental and quantum chemical studies that have been done. In addition, we expect the definition of a “wishlist” of studies to be done for those areas where answers are incomplete or contradictory.

The participants will then leave the workshop with specific assignments to write certain sections. Valentine Wakelam will manage the overall writing, and when all participants will have accepted (or not) the paper, we will send it to Molecular Astrophysics, - Xander Tielens being the Editor.
