About these proceedings

Introduction

The symposium “Star Clusters in the Era of Large Surveys” was held in Lisbon on Sep 9-10 during the JENAM 2010. It served as a platform for discussing what and how recent, on-going and planned large-area ground-based and space-based surveys can contribute to producing a major leap in this research field, which has a strong European history.

Scientific topics addressed included:

• Cluster searches
• Clustered vs. isolated star formation, large-scale star formation, enrichment of the field population
• Structure, populations and evolution of the Milky Way
• Cluster dynamics (internal and within the Milky Way)
• Variability of stars in clusters (from time-resolved surveys)
• Analysis techniques for large samples
• Archiving

This proceedings book provides a snapshot of the ongoing discussion on the role of large surveys in star cluster research, and serves as a reference volume for the state-of-the art in the field.

Keywords
