Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the conference chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
Origins of Solar Systems is an interdisciplinary meeting designed to bring together astronomers and cosmochemists for discussing the latest work on planet formation. Astronomical facilities are bringing online instrumentation to measure the composition of planet-forming material and planets themselves. Thanks to a combination of transit and radial velocity observations, the mass-radius relation of rocky exoplanets should be much better determined by the time of this meeting. We will attempt to connect the dots between spectroscopy of disks, spectroscopy of exoplanet atmospheres, and mass-radius relations, using the solar system as our guide.
This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Origins of Solar Systems (GRS)" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. Please check back regularly for updates to this information.
Poster sessions are an integral part of the our conferences, and offer all conferees an opportunity to discuss their research.
