Our main aim is to bring people together to talk about their current work, solving current problems and promoting new ideas. We will together with you decide on a programme in which anyone can bring up material they would like to discuss. So please bring along slides for such a discussion. Any topic on star clusters is of interest here. Previous or later speakers may also present material on a different than their talk topic.
