“From protoplanetary disks through planetary system architecture to planetary atmospheres and habitability”
The space telescope TESS was launched last year to conduct an extensive survey of exoplanets orbiting nearby bright stars, which will be followed by precise measurements with CHEOPS launched this autumn. Furthermore, spectroscopic observations of those transiting planets will be extensively conducted by scheduled missions such as JWST, ARIEL, and WSO-UV. We are about to enter the age of characterization of exoplanet atmospheres, which is a crucial milestone also in habitable planet science. Also recent solar-system missions have brought much new knowledge of the solar-system planets and small bodies. Against this background, we will hold a symposium that brings together scientists from a broad range of research topics such as planetary atmospheres, habitability, and planet formation and evolution, aiming for the participants to share current understanding regarding such important topics for the extra-solar and solar-system planets. We hope that you will actively join this exciting symposium and look forward very much to seeing you in Okinawa.
