Final Announcement

Workshop Location and Dates

The Workshop on Chondrules and the Protoplanetary Disk will be held February 27–28, 2017 at the Natural History Museum in London, United Kingdom.

Purpose and Scope

Chondrules, one of the major components of chondritic meteorites, provide important information about conditions and processes at different times and in different regions of the protoplanetary disk, including thermal processing and radial transport of solids in the disk, duration of its accretionary stage, and accretion, structure, and thermal evolution of chondrite parent bodies. Understanding the origin of chondrules is one of the fundamental but still unsolved problems in meteoritics and cosmochemistry.

The purpose of the workshop is to discuss physical, chemical, and isotopic characteristics of chondrules,
possible mechanisms of chondrule formation, relationships between chondrules and other chondritic components, and the relationship between chondrule formation and accretion.
