Chondrules are one of the major components of chondritic meteorites.

They provide important information about conditions and processes at different times and in different regions of the protoplanetary disk.


  • thermal processing and radial transport of solids in the disk
  • duration of its accretionary stage
  • accretion
  • structure
  • thermal evolution of chondrite parent bodies.

Understanding the origin of chondrules is one of the fundamental but still unsolved problems in meteoritics and cosmochemistry.

At this workshop we will discuss

  • physical, chemical, and isotopic characteristics of chondrules
  • possible mechanisms of chondrule formation
  • relationships between chondrules and other chondritic components
  • the relationship between chondrule formation and accretion.
