Thematic Sessions III. e. Hunting for Alien Worlds: Recent Advances in Exoplanet Research


Organised by:  Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA)
Venue: Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Large Lecture Hall
Abstract: 

Exoplanet research is one of the most important drivers in modern astronomy and astrophysics. Since the discovery of the first exoplanet around a Sun-like star (Mayor & Queloz 1995), a whole new field has exploded into existence, which was primarily assisted by significant advances in ground-based observations and dedicated space missions. These have delivered thousands of exoplanets through exquisite observations of tiny effects caused by the presence of planet-sized companions around stars. The rich variety of exoplanets has also forced theoreticians to re-formulate our understanding of planet formation and evolution. This event will deliver first-hand accounts of where the field is right now and where are we heading to in the next decade.
