The sixth edition of the Winter School « Chronology of the Formation of the Solar System » (a very popular school in the french planetary science community) took place on February 13-17, 2017, at the Ecole Physique des Houches in the French Alps at the foot of Mt. Blanc. All lectures were in English and the participation was open to the international community.
The goal of this edition is to bridge the gap between the communities of planetary science, cosmochemistry, interstellar medium and disc observations. Lectures aim at allowing the participants to fully understand a topic next to their own expertise.

NEW: Lectures can be found below, with the pdfs and a video of each presentation.

The list of participants and group picture can be found further below.
