6th Australian Exoplanet Workshop

29-30 November 2016 - Monash University, Melbourne

The 6th Australian Exoplanet Workshop will be held at the Clayton Campus of Monash University from 29-30 November 2016. Hosted by the Monash Centre for Astrophysics, this meeting aims to bring together Australian researchers working on exoplanets and related topics from both observational and theoretical perspectives.

The workshop will cover all areas in planetary science such as exoplanet surveys, planetary atmospheres, orbital dynamics, protoplanetary discs, theoretical modeling of planet formation and evolution, host star characterisations, and solar system science.

Participants are encouraged to give a short presentation on a specific research issue or to brief the workshop on the current research capabilities in exoplanet science or related topics in their departments. There will also be an opportunity to discuss strategies for increasing linkages and collaborations to expand this critical research area in the future.

There is no registration fee to attend the workshop. However, please indicate your attendance via the registration page, which includes the option to submit a title and abstract of the talk. There will be a workshop dinner on the Tuesday evening on campus which is self-funded. Registration deadline is 17 November 2016.

In conjunction with the 6th Australian Exoplanet Workshops, there will also be a half-day meeting about the Twinkle Space Mission. Twinkle will be the first dedicated space observatory for exoplanet characterisation using IR spectroscopy, and is planned for launch in 2019.

The twitter account for the workshop is @6thAEW, with hashtag #6AEW.
