2nd Australian Exoplanet Workshop

10 - 11 December 2012  -    Mt Stromlo Observatory, Canberra

Following on from a successful exoplanet workshop in Sydney in Feb 2012, the 2nd Australian Exoplanet Workshop was held at the ANU's Mt Stromlo Observatory in Canberra from 10-11 December 2012.

Hosted by ANU's Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, this was the 2nd meeting aimed to bring Australian researchers working on exoplanets (from both an observational and theoretical perspective) together. The workshop covered surveys, characterisation and theoretical modelling of planet formation and evolution - indeed anything related to the science of planets orbiting other stars. The timing of the meeting was such that we hope to be able to discuss ARC proposals that address topics related to exoplanet science.

Participants were 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 was also an opportunity to discuss important questions, and strategies for increasing linkages and collaborations as a means to expanding this critical research area in the future.

On Wednesday 12 December, there was a half-day Kepler data tutotiral.
