26-29 Sep 2017 Bordeaux (France)

Astrochemical conference KIDA2017

Scientific goal of the conference

Astrochemistry is a highly pluri-disciplinary field gathering scientists from astrophysics, physics and chemistry. As such, communication is not always easy and requires some efforts from each side. In this context, the KInetic Database for Astrochemistry (KIDA) was created several years ago to assemble the gas-phase chemical reactions and associated parameters used in the context of astrochemical numerical simulations. In 2016, the KIDA database was extended to include reactions at the surface of the grains.

To promote the field of astrochemistry and advertise the efforts made to improve the kinetic data for the interstellar medium, we organize workshops bringing together the different fields of research.

The KIDA 2017 Astrochemical conference will take place in Bordeaux from September 26th to 29th, 2017. Four research topics will be addressed:


Gas-phase processes

Heterogeneous chemistry and the interactions of the gas phase with grain surfaces.

Astrochemical observations

Astrochemical modelling


Each of these topics will be introduced by an introductory talk for non experts.
