We would like to announce a two-day mini-conference on recent advances on planetary astronomy. The conference is organized by the IAU Division F (Planetary Systems & Astrobiology) in conjunction with the 30th General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union that will be held in August 2018 in Vienna. The purpose of this program is to bring together researchers from all fields of planetary astronomy (Solar system and extrasolar planets) to present their new findings in form of oral and poster presentations, and discuss the current state of research in our field. The website of the conference can be found at:

The mini-conference is held on August 24 & 27, 2018 during the IAU General Assembly.

Registration is now open and abstracts are accepted from all fields of planetary astronomy for oral and poster presentations. The deadline for early registration discount is January 31.
