Massive Star Formation at the Puerto Varas Workshop

The recent decades have witnessed major advances in our understanding of the formation of solar-mass stars. However, the formation mechanisms of stars at the extremes  of the mass range, that is, on one hand very massive stars and in the other brown dwarfs, remain poorly understood. I will summarize the main results presented in a recent meeting on massive star formation that took place in Puerto Varas, Chile and discuss some new observational perspectives for the future.
