Following the first Cosmic Fullerenes workshop in Edinburgh in 2017, we will be having a second edition of the workshop in Orsay nearby Paris, France. This workshop is intended to provide opportunities to discuss the status concerning the presence of fullerenes in space. In particular the goal is to bring together experimental, theoretical and observational researchers from the molecular astrophysics, chemistry and astronomy communities to discuss what is currently known about the topic and what our needs are to advance our understanding. This second workshop closely follows collaborative funding applications to forward our knowledge and understanding of the consequences of the presence of fullerenes in space for astrochemistry as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Dates & Times: Wed Sep 19, 10:00 -- Fri Sep 21, 16:00.
Location: The workshop will take place on the campus University Paris Sud, nearby Paris. The lectures will be given in the amphitheater Blandin at the Laboratoire de Physique des Solides.
Registration: from 25th of May to 31st of August
Abstract submission deadline (oral and poster): 15th of July
Final program: Beginning of September

The workshop will consist of a mixture of tutorial lectures, short presentations (ca. 20 minutes), posters and discussion sessions. In particular, time will be set aside to discuss future potential collaborations, training networks and funding possibilities. Detailed scheduling will be confirmed close to the workshop time. Reviews will be given by invited speakers:
Jan Cami (Western Ontario University): Interstellar & Circumstellar Fullerenes
Ewen Campbell (Basel University): Experimental spectroscopy of fullerenes
Chris Ewels (Nantes University): Formation of fullerenes
Pat Fowler (Sheffield University): Structure and properties of fullerenes
Henning Zettergren (Stockholm University): Dynamics of fullerenes

There will be no registration fee. Lunches and possibly dinners will be provided depending on financial support. Accommodation close to the campus, in the Orsay area, will be indicated in following letters.
