Title
Spitzer bubbles and triggered star formation
Abstract

Spitzer bubbles are HII regions identified at 8 microns by the Spitzer Space Telescope.

The bubbles show strong evidence for star formation on their periphery, but it is not clear whether this star formation could have been triggered by the expansion of the HII regions.

I will present the results of a statistical study showing an overdensity of massive star formation associated with the rims of the bubbles.
