Exoplanets and Planet Formation
11-15 December 2017
This international conference is devoted to the astrophysics of exoplanets. Among the more than 5000 exoplanets and candidates discovered so far are many extreme systems that are quite unlike our own solar system. Understanding these exoplanets, in conjunction with protoplanetary disks and the solar system planets, can provide new insights into the structure, formation and evolution of planetary systems.
The conference will consist of invited/solicited talks (mostly chosen from submitted abstracts) and posters. While all topics (observation and theory) of exoplanetary science are welcome, a general theme is planetary formation and evolution. To this end, related topics on protoplanetary disks and solar system planets will also be covered.
