Title: Disk Composition and Evolution in Young Stellar Associations

Abstract: How the ubiquitous disks around young stars form planets and dissipate to leave mature planetary systems is a remaining major puzzle of exoplanet science. I will show observations of stars over a range of ages in a three prong attempt to study simultaneously their ages, their disk populations and, where possible, individual disks in detail. I will concentrate on stars in nearby young stellar associations and show how multi-wavelength imaging of their disks can reveal their compositions and dynamical states.
