Sixty-two scientific talks were presented in the workshop, and they enhanced the collaboration and communication between the scholars. The main topics of the workshop included key issues related to molecular clouds and star formation (structural, physical, chemical and dynamic properties), molecular clouds and structure of the Milky Way, molecular clouds and feedbacks of massive star formation (supernova remnants, HII regions, stellar wind bubbles, etc. ), molecular clouds and evolution of late-type stars, star formation in galaxies, radio astronomical instruments and projects of large sky survey.

At the invitation of Altay No.2 senior high school, research fellow Di Li, and professor Yuqing Lou presented scientific talks at the school, With large number of students and teachers attended, the event offered a great opportunity for high-level outreach education activity, which inspired interests in astronomy and encouragement to the participants to make contribution to astronomy in the future.
