Giant Magellan Telescope Community Science Meeting

September 6, 2023 - September 8, 2023

Giant Magellan Telescope COmmunity Science Meeting

With thousands of new worlds now confirmed, exoplanet science is poised to address long-standing questions: How do planets form and evolve? How diverse are their physical and chemical properties? How does our solar system compare to other planetary systems? How common are Earth-like planets?

This meeting will bring together observers, theorists, and instrumentalists to share the latest results and plans for future research and facilities that will be needed to answer these questions. Some of the topics we will focus on will include:

– Formation, evolution, and architectures of exoplanet systems
– Demographics of exoplanets and systems
– Exoplanet atmospheres and interiors
– Astrobiology and biosignatures
– The roles and unique contributions of ELTs and space observatories and their complementarity

The GMT Community Science Meeting will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel at the Wharf in Washington, D.C., September 6 – 8. The opening reception will be Tuesday evening (September 5). Wednesday and Thursday will be full days of talks; the conference will conclude on Friday, September 8 after lunch.
