They cover observations and theory of circumstellar disks and outflows delta Sco and Be stars as laboratories for circumstellar disk physics, the dynamics of circumstellar material and tidal interactions, massive star formation out of a dynamic environment, and magnetospheres of hot stars.
The meeting focused on active OB-stars as laboratories for the study of physical processes leading to stellar activity and the ejection of circumstellar material, particularly the orbiting disk that is central to rapidly rotating B-type stars with prominent emission lines of hydrogen in their spectrums (Be stars).
But studying this circumstellar material, or nebula, has proven difficult with ground-based telescopes: The nebula is relatively small, faint, and too close to the dazzling light from the star to observe clearly In imaging the star and its surroundings, a new camera aboard the repaired Hubble Space Telescope has revealed previously unknown structure in the dust.
