Welcome to ALVIO @ 80 5 – 10 September 2021 Island of Crete, Greece |


The conference will celebrate the life and the scientific achievements of Alvio Renzini, who turned 80 in July 2020. Alvio’s extraordinary career spans over nearly 6 decades of amazing productivity and covers a great diversity of scientific topics, including stellar evolution, stellar populations in globular clusters, the Milky Way and nearby galaxies, elliptical galaxies, high-redshift star formation, theoretical modeling, observations.

The scientific program is focused on the latest developments, both observationally and theoretically, in each of these topics with an emphasis on the interplay between the evolution of stellar populations in galaxy sub-structures, the evolution of the supermassive black hole, and the evolution of galaxies as systems across the cosmic time, including the physics of quenching. While highlighting Alvio’s monumental legacy and reviewing the past successes, the conference will also address present outstanding problems, discuss current efforts and point to the most promising future directions.
