About the Meeting

Exoplanet science continues to be a rapidly increasing field in Southern California. To capitalize on this, we are organizing the fifth annual gathering of local exoplanet scientists to allow members of the community get to know one another and to learn about the many opportunities for collaborations.

We have set aside September 14 and 15 to welcome the many new exoplanet researchers who will be arriving in the fall, including, of course, new grad students. We are planning a two-day virtual meeting with an emphasis on contributed talks by our new arrivals as well as more established locals. We are extending an invitation to anyone interested in exoplanet science who is in the Southern California area, including anyone visiting at the time of the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you online at the meeting! #ExSoCal2020
