Exploring Dense Stellar Systems Across Cosmic Time






Scientific Rationale: This will be the 22nd annual international conference in the MODEST (Modeling and Observing DEnse STellar systems) meeting series. MODEST-24 will bring together researchers working on dense stellar systems and create a space for theorists and observers to connect. 


Our goal is to encourage a friendly exchange of knowledge, ideas and tools among groups working on similar topics and research questions. We look forward to hosting a collaborative and enriching experience for all participants. 


The scientific agenda of the conference will cover a broad range of topics including but not limited to 

• Numerical approaches to modelling stellar systems and their constituents  
• Observational properties of dense stellar systems in different environments  
• Formation of dense stellar systems across cosmic time  
• Stellar multiplicity, exotica, and transients in star clusters  
• Compact objects and gravitational wave sources 


Conference Format:  The meeting schedule will comprise contributed talks and interactive discussions, spanning approximately 6 to 7 hours each day from August 19th to 23rd. Ample time will be allocated for meaningful discussions, smaller parallel gatherings, participant interactions, and the opportunity to explore Warsaw during the summer.
