I’ll be attending this on the first day… Looks interesting!

Characterising exoplanets: detection, formation, interiors, atmospheres and habitability

Full website here. (Details below copied in part from this website.)

Monday 11 March 2013 to Tuesday 12 March 2013 at the Royal Society, London.

Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Athena Coustenis, Professor Steve Miller, Professor Peter Read and Professor Jonathan Tennyson FRS.

Event details

This meeting aims to set the agenda for the next decade in this rapidly expanding field of extra-solar planet science. Some 800 planets orbiting stars outside of our solar system have now been detected, with varying masses and orbital parameters. The challenge now is to move from detection to understanding these planets as bodies in their own right.

Attending this event

This event is intended for researchers in relevant fields and is free to attend. There are a limited number of places and registration is essential. An optional lunch is offered and should be booked during registration (all major credir cards accepted).
