BRAVE NEW WORLDS: UNDERSTANDING THE PLANETS OF OTHER STARS

Sigrid School, XII edition – Villa del Grumello, Como, Italy, 29 May – 3 June 2016

This year the Lake Como School of Advanced Studies will focus on exoplanet science. The school is directed to PhD students and young postdocs who are interested in widening their knowledge in the field of exoplanets. Lecturers will report on theoretical, observational and experimental aspects of the research, reviewing the latest achievements in the field. The program includes:

 

  • Gaspar Bakos (Princeton University) – The exoplanet hunt
  • Caitlin Griffith (University of Arizona, Tucson) – Understanding planets around the Sun and other stars
  • Giusi Micela (INAF – Osservatorio Palermo) – The stellar environment
  • Alessandro Morbidelli (Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur) – How do planets form?
  • Franck Selsis (Université Bordeaux) – Exoplanet chemistry and habitability
  • Jonathan Tennyson (UCL) – Molecular spectroscopy for exoplanets
  • Giovanna Tinetti (UCL) – Decoding the light of extrasolar worlds

Information on the registration and accommodations are given in the poster. The deadline for applying for support to cover local expenses is April 2nd.

See you in Como next spring!

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs)

Aiming at fostering collaboration, sharing new techniques, and infrastructure that may not be available in other participants' institutions or laboratories. STSMs are intended especially for young PhD researchers, but they are open to senior researchers as well. View the documents at this link.

 It should be explicitely noted that Master students are not eligible for STSMs which are for PhD students and more experienced researchers.

The life-Origins COST Project


Life-ORIGINS (TD1308) is a Trans Domain European COST Action dedicated to the scientific investigation of the origins and evolution of life on Earth and habitability of other planets.

The Action has specifically excluded the search for intelligent extraterrestrial life in its portfolio. Creationist theorems are also outside the Action’s remit.

Individuals are not allowed to use the name of the Action, its logo or any corporate identity of COST TD1308 in any communication without prior approval of the Management Committee.

All publications referencing the support of the Action should be sent to the appropriate Working Group chair at the time of submission.
