Dear ASA,

The GMT-sponsored (i.e. travel funding available to ECRs/Students) annual science meeting this year is on Exoplanets: Atmospheres to Architectures. It is a great meeting to catch up on latest results and make new collaborations, and is much broader than a meeting purely about the role of GMT. I hope to see some of you there! Announcement below…


Registration is now open for the 9th annual GMT Community Science Meeting<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/tWq6COMKzVTNv2wmoSEMEE5?domain=conference.gmto.org>!

The meeting, Exoplanets: Atmospheres to Architectures<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/tWq6COMKzVTNv2wmoSEMEE5?domain=conference.gmto.org/>, will take place September 6-8, 2023 in Washington, D.C., at the InterContinental Hotel at the Wharf.

With thousands of new worlds now confirmed, exoplanet science is poised to address long-standing questions: How do planets form and evolve? How diverse are their physical and chemical properties? How does our solar system compare to other planetary systems? How common are Earth-like planets?

This meeting will bring together observers, theorists, and instrumentalists to share the latest results and plans for future research and facilities that will be needed to answer these questions. Some of the topics we will focus on will include:

•      Formation, evolution, and architectures of exoplanet systems

•      Demographics of exoplanets and systems

•      Exoplanet atmospheres and interiors

•      Astrobiology and biosignatures

•      The roles, unique contributions, and complementarity of the ELTs and other facilities.

The meeting will include plenty of time for discussion, with all sessions, meals, and lodging at the InterContinental Hotel. As usual, there is no registration fee and partial travel reimbursement is available for graduate students and postdocs.
