Habitable Worlds 2017: Format of the Workshop
Our meeting will be a workshop intended to bring a diverse range of interests together to bring about collaborations that will drive exoplanet science towards understanding and finding habitable worlds.
We will have plenary talks in the mornings to highlight the progress that our respective fields have made towards the goal of understanding and finding habitable worlds, and identifying the challenges we face. We will include a combination of review talks and topical talks selected competitively from abstracts.
These will be followed by breakout sessions in the afternoon for discussion, including some splinter sessions to draft plans on how to move our field forward. We have posted some ideas for break-out sessions but also will welcome ideas from the community.
We will facilitate plenty of time for discussion, networking and poster sessions to ensure you have the time and freedom to engage with your peers, and even “shop around” between break-out sessions and splinter sessions.
On the last day, we look forward to hearing reports from the break-out sessions and splinter groups to discuss their findings.
