Planet Formation and Evolution 2011


We are pleased to announce the
7th Planet Formation Workshop
that will take place during February 14-16, 2011
at the Georg-August-University Göttingen (Germany).

After the discovery of about 500 extrasolar planets, recent new observations within our own Solar System, the process of planet formation and the subsequent evolution of planetary systems in general has received the highest ever attention of the scientific community, on theoretical as well as observational side.
In continuation of the Planet Formation Workshops Series in Germany, the aim of this meeting is to bring together scientists from diverse fields again (e.g. astronomy, planetary science, mineralogy and laboratory work) to engage and continue an active and interdisciplinary discussion.

Fields that will be covered include:
Solar System studies
Extrasolar planetary systems
Laboratory work
Protoplanetary disc physics
Evolution of planetary systems
