Exoplanetary systems: past, present, and future
With K2 ongoing, and TESS and PLATO launching within the decade, the field of exoplanet research is continuing to bloom. Interest in the subject is spreading throughout the UK research community, and frequent press coverage of scientific studies shows that the general public are also interested, particularly where habitability is concerned.

This session will cover all aspects of exoplanet research, from the formation of planetary system to their post-main sequence survival, via exoplanet detection, dynamical evolution, planetary atmospheres, and habitability. The goal of this session is to bring together researchers working on these myriad areas, so that all concerned can develop their understanding of the life of an exoplanetary system.

Contributions are particularly encouraged from early career researchers.
David Brown, David Armstrong, Don Pollacco
C4, C5, C6. Tuesday 9am, 1:30pm & 4:30pm
