Oral Presentation

Growth of solids in protoplanetary disks

In this talk I will review our current knowledge of the grain growth process in protoplanetary disks midplanes, based on millimetre and centimetre observations of young stars with disks. I will discuss the results of photometric (non spatially resolved) surveys of disks in nearby star forming regions, that allow us to constrain the global evolution of the grain growth process as a function of mass and age of the system; and will also discuss the recent results of spatially resolved studies of grain growth in disks. The results are discussed in the context of grain evolution models and I will highlight the open problems that ALMA Band 1 observations will allow us to address.
