After the inaugural meeting of the UK Exoplanet Community at Cambridge in April 2014 it is now Warwick's turn to play host. The first meeting demonstrated the strengths and diversity of our young community.
The 2015 meeting will be held over 3 days with the goal of encouraging the younger members of our community. The format will be different from the inaugural meeting and will be primarily composed of:
1) 15 minute talks from senior academics reviewing the work going on in their own departments in the ESP area.
2) PDRA's and PhD students giving short talks on their research.
For any talks we cannot accommodate we will arrange a 'pop-up' session. Everyone that wants to talk will get a chance.
In addition we will have a session aimed at discussing the international
scene and the current STFC "Review of Exoplanet Science" which is due to submit a report to Science Board shortly after this meeting. This will probably be the last opportunity to give feedback to the panel in advance of submission to science board.
A Draft version of the STFC 2015 Review is available (pre-consultation).
The period of consultation has now ended. The version submitted to STFC Science Board will be made available by STFC (post election).
