Conference photos!


The first models for photodissociation regions (PDRs) appeared thirty years ago. Since then, PDRs have been recognized as a widespread astronomical phenomenon. Essentially the entire neutral interstellar medium of galaxies is a PDR governed by the same physics and chemistry.

With the results of Herschel Space Observatory and the Atacama Large Millimeter Array now becoming widely available, it is timely to organize a symposium on the many facets of PDRs and their role in studies of the Universe and at the same time honor one of the pioneers of these studies, David Hollenbach.
