    New Directions in Planet Formation
    from 11 Jul 2016 through 15 Jul 2016

 

Description and aim

 

In the past two decades over 2,000 exoplanets have been discovered with properties and orbital architectures very different from the solar system. Yet the theoretical foundations of planet formation theory still rely on a framework conceived for the solar system. This workshop will focus on new developments in dust coagulation, planetesimal formation, planetary growth and planetary migration. The goal of the workshop is to critically assess the viability of various theories on planet formation and establish new research directions.
