The confluence of the 400th anniversary of astronomical telescopes, the completion of the basic, cold, 5-year mission of the Spitzer Space Telescope, and the near-certain advent of JWST, ALMA, and extremely large, ground-based telescopes seemed to invite a symposium to investigate the past, present, and future of star formation studies.While this summary attempts to mention everybody, with at least one significant idea from each speaker, including the one-minute poster presentations, it will surely fail. The sessions were expertly chaired by L. Woltjer, C. Cesarsky (also involved in the ESO event), J. Andersen, and H.-M. Maitzen. © 2009 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
