Title: The Birth of Stars and Multiple Systems 

Abstract:  The formation of stars is the last major remaining problem in stellar evolution. Significant progress has been achieved in recent years both observationally and theoretically. Most stars are formed in binary systems, so any theory of star formation must account for binary and multiple systems. I will present a broad overview of the latest results in star formation, with special emphasis on phenomena related to the birth of small stellar systems.
