Planet Formation and Evolution 2012

First Announcement
We are pleased to announce the conference
"Planet Formation and Evolution 2012"
which will take place during
September 3 - 7, 2012 at the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität, Munich.

Stimulated by the discovery of more than 700 extrasolar planets and recent solar system observations, planet formation and the subsequent evolution of planetary systems has received the highest attention of the scientific community. Following the tradition of previous workshops in this series, this 8th Workshop on Planet Formation and Evolution will bring together scientists from various theoretical, observational and experimental fields and aims to stimulate interdisciplinary discussion between astronomy, astrobiology, planetary science, mineralogy, laboratory work, and other adjacent fields.

Topics that will be covered include:
Solar System Studies
Extrasolar Planetary Systems
Planet Formation
Physics and Evolution of Protoplanetary Disks
Laboratory Work on Planet Formation
Evolution of Planetary Systems
Planetary Atmospheres

Registration will open in spring 2012. Since we are limited to a maximum of 200 participants (due to the capacity of the lecture hall), early registration is recommended. In the tradition of the former Planet Formation workshops, we plan a low-cost workshop with no printed proceedings and no conference fee.
