IPAC announces the 2017 Sagan Exoplanet Summer Workshop, which will take place Aug 7-11 on the campus of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. Organized annually by the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute (NExScI) and covering a different topic each year, the workshop will explore the microlensing method for exoplanet search in the context of current mission capabilities and the future WFIRST (Wide-Field Infra-Red Survey Telescope) microlensing survey. Designed for anyone in the scientific community interested in learning about the topic, the summer workshop will offer presentations from leaders in the field, data analysis hands-on sessions, and an opportunity for participants to present their own work during several presentation/poster sessions.
The registration for attending the workshop is officially closed, but we do accept walk-ins. We also have hands-on sessions, for which we have reached full capacitance. However, interested people can sign up for a waiting list.
