This conference will celebrate John Papaloizou, as he
moves into his eighth decade, and his key contributions to dynamical
from planets to stars to discs to galaxies. Throughout
his career, John has been at the forefront of many of the most
important dynamical problems of contemporary astronomy.
From planetary migration and gap opening,
to tidal interactions in stars and discs, to dynamical
stability, to resonances,
to stellar oscillations, John's contributions have been
This get-together will assemble many of the world's
leading researchers in the numerous fields
John has contributed to, with a strong focus on particle
and gas dynamics.
The topics will span the entire range of John's
interests... from planets to stars to discs to galaxies.
