The collect and collapse model predicts that the layer of gas and dust accumulated between the ionization and shock fronts during the expansion of the HII region collapses and forms dense fragments, giving rise to potential sites of massive-star formation. The aim of our study is to look for such massive fragments and massive young stars on the borders of RCW 120. We mapped the RCW 120 region in the cold dust continuum emission at 1.2 mm to search for these fragments. We supplemented this study with the available near- (2MASS) and mid-IR (GLIMPSE) data to locate the IR sources observed towards this region and to analyse their properties. We then compared the observational results with the predictions of Hosokawa & Inutsuka's model (2005ApJ...623..917H; 2006ApJ...646..240H). Description: Of the two sets of observations, the SEST-SIMBA contains continuum maps at 1.2-mm (250GHz) of a 20'x20' field centred on RCW 120 were obtained using the 37-channel SIMBA bolometer array (SEST Imaging Bolometer Array) on May 7-8, 2003.

Note (1): Fields designations as follows: CN = Condensation N TIR = Towards the ionized region OUT = Outside Note (2): These two objects were identified as 25out in the first version of the table (until 18-Jul-2008). - 25out (258.047760 -38.266209) is renamed 46out - 25out (258.225098 -38.365845) is renamed 47out Note (3): When magnitudes where not available from the GLIMPSE PSC, we measured the magnitudes (aperture photometry) using the Basic Calibrated Data frames.
