Event Format: Conference
Date: 27 May - 3 Jun 2012
Location: The Weizmann In, IL
May 27 - June 3, 2012
The Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel
The theme was chosen to bring together experts in aspects of planetary formation, solar system evolution, and interpretation of exoplanetary discoveries. We plan to organize keynote talks around five topics:
Solar system formation
Gas giants formation and interiors
Moons and icy objects as keystones
The format is inspired by Gordon Research Conferences, with full-length talks followed by substantial time for discussion in the mornings, and shorter presentations in the afternoon. Please consider contributing a presentation on topics relatable to planetary origins, not necessarily from the list of five above.
Some funding is available to support local accommodation, food, and travel expenditures in Israel, the level will depend upon the total number of participants. Student participants may be considered for additional support.
We welcome broad attendance; please feel free to circulate this invitation to interested colleagues, and forgive us if you receive multiple copies of this invitation.
