5th Australian Exoplanet Workshop: "Australian Exoplanetary Science in the Era of K2, TESS and Gaia"

9-10 December 2015 - University of New South Wales, Sydney

Registrations are now open for the 5th Australian Exoplanet Workshop which will be held at the Kensington Campus of the University of New South Wales from 9-10 December 2015. Hosted by the UNSW Astrophysics Group, 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, theoretical modeling of planet formation and evolution, host star characterisations, and solar system science. This year's workshop will include a dedicated session on the K2, TESS and Gaia missions, which will provide high-precision photometry and astrometry on an unprecedented scale in the southern hemisphere. A goal of the workshop will be to discuss strategies for the Australian exoplanet community to efficiently exploit these spectacular resources over the coming years. There will also be an opportunity to discuss strategies for increasing linkages and collaborations to expand this critical research area in the future.

The registration deadline is 27 November 2015.
