Rocky Exoplanets in the Era of JWST: Theory and Observation, November 4-8, 2019

We’d like to announce the 2nd Annual NASA Goddard SEEC Symposium, titled “Rocky Exoplanets in the Era of JWST: Theory and Observation”, held November 4 – 8, 2019 at NASA Goddard in Greenbelt, Maryland, USA. It will be hosted by the GSFC Sellers Exoplanet Environments Collaboration (SEEC) and co-supported by the University of Maryland Astronomy Department.

The goal of this meeting is to bring together theorists and observers interested in rocky exoplanets from across the exoplanet and planetary community and related fields, to help us all prepare for the first light of the James Webb Space Telescope era by framing the key questions about these worlds and the exciting new observations that will help us characterize them.

The workshop will include invited overview talks combined with short research presentations, and ample time for group discussion and collaborative work sessions. The Symposium website has a list of session topics and the current invited speakers list: https://seec.gsfc.nasa.gov/Symposium.html.

 The website for Registration and Abstracts for combined poster+flash talks will open at the beginning of August.  Attendance is space limited (max 150 attendees), so please check the meeting’s webpage and pre-register now. We will alert pre-registrants first when the full registration and abstract submission pages are available.

 Best,
Avi Mandell, Eliza Kempton, and the Symposium SOC and LOC
