Meeting Abstract

We are organizing a meeting to celebrate four decades of contributions of Professor Anthony F.J. Moffat to massive-star research. Since his first papers on open clusters in the early 70ís, Tonyís research interests have expanded in many directions to cover a multitude of aspects of massive stars. The meeting will encompass the following main subjects on which he has worked during his career:

Young open star clusters: keys to understanding massive stars
Galactic structure and dynamics; runaway stars
Massive binaries: orbits, masses, mass-loss rates, binary frequency, colliding winds, dust formation
The most massive stars
The true nature of clumping in hot stellar winds and its consequences
Rotation and magnetic fields
Pulsations (e.g. MOST and soon BRITE-Constellation)
WR surveys (Galactic and extra-galactic)

The Program Organizing Comittee will consider any proposed contributions but priority will be given to those that are related to the selected themes for this meeting.
