UCF Winter Workshop 2010: Exoplanets for Planetary Scientists

A cross-disciplinary scientific workshop for exoplanetary researchers and students from both the stellar and planetary communities, this workshop features introductory reviews, regular oral and poster sessions with the latest research results, and plenty of scheduled time for interaction and collaboration.

Time and place:

Live Oak Room
Ferrell Commons
University of Central Florida Campus
Orlando, Florida
6-8 January 2010


The dominant flux source in exoplanetary observations is not a planet but a star. Exoplanetary science thus combines planetary theory with stellar techniques and instrumentation. Researchers come from either planetary or stellar backgrounds, but need to understand both areas to become fully effective. This cross-disciplinary meeting is an opportunity to present results to a broad audience of both planetary and stellar researchers, to network and collaborate between the two communities, and to begin learning the topics outside your background. There are three planetary theory sessions and three stellar observational sessions, each starting with a graduate-level introductory review by a recognized community leader. The invited oral and contributed poster sessions showcase the latest results. The scheduled interaction time lets students mingle with potential mentors, gives distant collaborators a chance to meet and work together, and helps everyone broaden their knowledge and network of contacts in both communities. Are you...

* an exoplanet researcher looking for a broad audience?
* a student working on (or looking for) a thesis in exoplanets?
* a project leader seeking students or collaborators?
* a planetary scientist ready to dive into exoplanets?
* a planet hunter needing to learn planetary physics?

Then join us for this warm Winter Workshop.
