The far-infrared to radio view of star formation in clusters
Radio, (sub)mm and infrared observations are key to our current understanding of the formation of massive stars in clusters, but often the interpretation is limited by the complexity of observations. First, I will present recent projects aiming at measuring the population of star-forming cores and young massive stars in cluster forming clouds, mainly the ALMA-IMF Large Program and a complementary project in the W49 cloud. I will highlight some of the first scientific results of these programs, and describe the public data releases of ALMA-IMF. For the interpretation of the continuum images, the separation of dust and free-free emission is very important, so I will also discuss a few methods to achieve this. Then I will switch to describe other projects consisting in modelling the dust and free-free continuum, as well as the kinematics in radio recombination and molecular lines of massive (proto)stars in clustered environments. Finally, I will outline our initial efforts to contribute to the science case of the Next Generation Very Large Array, which ideally should have a few antennas across Mexico.
