Australian Exoplanet Workshop

16 - 17 February 2012   -    Macquarie University, Sydney

Exoplanetary Science is the fastest growing area in astrophysics world-wide. In order to bring Australian researchers working in this field together, an inaugural Australian Exoplanet Workshop is being held at the Macquarie University on 16-17 February 2012.

Hosted by Macquarie's Research Centre in Astronomy, Astrophysics and Astrophotonics, this meeting is anticipated to be the first of a series that will bring Australian researchers working on exoplanets (from both an observational and theoretical perspective) together. The workshop will cover surveys, characterisation and theoretical modelling of planet formation and evolution - indeed anything related to the science of planets orbiting other stars.

Participants are encouraged to give a short presentation, either on a specific research issue, or to brief the workshop on the research capabilities in exoplanetary science in their departments at present. There will also be an opportunity to discusss important questions, and strategies for increasing linkages and collaborations as a means to expanding this critical research area in the future.

There is no registration fee to attend the Workshop. However, please indicate your attendenance via the registration page, which includes the option to submit a title and abstract of the talk. Registration deadline is 3 February 2012.
