Know Thy Star - Know Thy Planet

October

Su Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa

This NExScI three and a half day meeting will gather experts in the field to understand community needs for follow-up observations in the era of K2 and TESS and leading into JWST, PLATO, and WFIRST.

The meeting will focus on the needs for stellar characterization, bound (and unbound) companions, false positive assessment, and planetary characterization with an emphasis on the techniques necessary to accomplish these goals. The follow-up needs for radial velocity, transit, direct imaging, and microlensing detections of planets are similar but also different in detail.
