CASSACA is co-sponsoring a conference on “The Soul of High-mass star formation”, which is to be held on March 15-20, in Puetro Varas, a beautiful port city in South Chile.
During the last decade many large-scale surveys (e.g. GLIMPSE, ATLASGAL) led to the identification of massive star formation regions in their earliest stages in our Galaxy. These have been observed with new instruments, in particular massive Herschel data has been taken to characterize physically and chemically the most embedded sources on moderate to large spatial scales. Today, when ALMA will soon begin full operations opening new windows in frequency, chemistry, spatial resolution, and sensitivity, it is timely to discuss our current understanding and open questions on massive star formation.

CASSACA is co-sponsoring SOCHIAS XII annual meeting, which will be held during March 12-15th, 2015, at a beautiful port city Puerto Varas. For more, please visit http://www.sochias.cl.
CASSACA is co-sponsoring 15. meeting of the MODEST community (MODEST15) in Departamento de Astronomia at the Universidad de Concepcion, in Concepcion, Chile at the 2nd – 6th of March 2015.
The aim of this meeting is to provide a comprehensive software framework for large-scale simulations of dense stellar systems, within which existing codes for dynamics, stellar evolution, and hydrodynamics can be easily coupled and compared to reality.

In order to promote the communication and collaboration between astronomy communities of Chile and Chile, the 4th China-Chile Astronomy workshop will be held in Guangzhou, on Dec 7 – 10, 2014.
Guangzhou, the capital of the Guangdong Province, is a beautiful and well developed city in China. It is China’s 3rd largest city, with a population of about 13 million, and Known as “The Goat City”. Guangzhou is also a trourist city, and have warm and comfortable weather in November.
CASSACA sincerely invite interested participants to join in the workshop and appreciate your contribution of talks. Please fill in the online early registration before September 29th, 2014, and submit your talk title and abstract before September 25th, 2014 if you wish to be considered for travel support, or before 10th October if not.
