The Chesapeake Bay Area Exoplanet Meeting brings together scientists who work on exoplanets and related topics from the DC area and beyond. This series of one-day meetings enables the sharing of ideas in an informal setting with the focus being on building collaborations and expertise.
July 17 - 31, 2020, will be held online
Exoplanets III is the third conference in a new series that started with Exoplanets I in Davos, Switzerland in 2016 and Exoplanets II in Cambridge, Great Britain in 2018. The conference covers all fields of exoplanet science.
September 14 - 16, 2020, Columbia University, New York City, Likely to be held virtually
The objective of this workshop is to use THAI as a vector for comparisons and discussions between GCMs use in Exoplanetary Science to predict the climate of rocky exoplanets in the Habitable Zone, the detectability of their atmosphere (if any) and their characterization. Other Model Intercomparisons will be discussed such as the one initiated in 2019 by Jun Yang for planets at the inner edge of the Habitable Zone of M dwarfs and even the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP), currently in its version 6, running for decades to evaluate differences in GCM responses to forcings for anthropogenic climate change on Earth.
SEEC and the ASD Exoplanet and Stellar Astrophysics Laboratory jointly host a weekly series of seminars on exoplanet and planetary formation topics. The seminars typically occur on Thursdays from 12:00 -1:00 pm, though times may change due to conflicts; please see the schedule below for more details.
The goals for this series are to provide an opportunity to discuss cool new scientific results, exoplanet atmospheres/surfaces, to provide pathways to learn about tools and methods relevant to JWST exoplanet observations, to provide a venue for early career scientists to present their new work to the broader community, and to provide an inclusive and welcoming interaction space for scientists working across the world on topics broadly related to exoplanets and JWST.
The Origins Seminar series aims to bring together ISM, star and planet formation people, exoplanets experts, planetary scientists and astrobiologists including topics from molecular clouds through star and planet formation to exoplanets detection and characterization and astrobiology. A number of slots are reserved per semester for the presentation of original research by the EOS/NExSS exoplanet collaboration.
