2020 Planet Formation Program: From Dust Coagulation to the Final Orbital Assembly

Planet Formation: From Dust Coagulation to the Final Orbital Assembly, Munich Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics (MIAPP), Garching, Germany, June 1-26, 2020

Dear colleagues,

It gives us great pleasure to announce the 2020 Planet Formation program at the Munich Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics (MIAPP) in Garching, Germany. The program will be held on June 1-26, 2020. This four-week program aims to bring together experts with complementary expertise in observation and theory in solar system and extrasolar planetary astronomy to assess the current status of planet formation models, highlight problems in each formation stage, and explore the possibility of developing comprehensive models that can be applied to different planetary systems. Please see the program website for more details: http://www.munich-iapp.de/planetformation

The structure of the program will be informal. The main goal is to create an environment that will facilitate collaborations and new initiatives. There will be daily gathering for discussing specific topics, new results, and brain storming.

Each attendee will be provided with an office and Internet access. Financial support at the rate of EUR 80 per day will be provided for accommodation and local expenses. Additional financial support for attendees with family and children and for graduate students is available. Details can be found at http://www.munich-iapp.de/home/information-for-participants/financial-support/

In order to attend, it is necessary to apply. Please go to the program website (http://www.munich-iapp.de/planetformation), scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on “Register here.” Please note that the application deadline is September 1, 2019. Please also note that MIAPP requires attendance for at least two weeks.

We invite and encourage you to apply. We also request that you kindly pass this information to your colleagues, collaborators, students and postdocs who are involved and/or interested in planet formation.

Looking forward to receiving your applications.

Best regards, Man Hoi, Nader, Soko, and Hilke
