Workshop • July 24th - 28th, 2023 • Online and at Caltech
Observations of an exoplanet’s atmosphere provide the best hope for distinguishing the makeup of its outer layers, and the only hope for understanding the interplay between formation, natal composition, chemical and disequilibrium processes, and dynamics & circulation. This year’s workshop will cover theoretical modeling, interpretation, and observations of exoplanets using a variety of telescopes,...
Workshop • May 1st - 3rd, 2023 • Caltech / Keith Spalding Building
The meeting is intended to bring together the US Euclid community ahead of Euclid’s planned launch in July. The main goal of the meeting is to ramp up our efforts for Euclid analysis and provide the information for members who have not yet had a chance to contribute to get up to speed. The program features a mix of overview talks, tutorials on Euclid tools and data products, and parallel sessions of the...
Workshop • March 13th - 15th, 2023 • Hameetman Auditorium of the Cahill Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics on the Caltech campus in Pasadena, CA
The “First UVEX Community Workshop: Synergies and New Opportunities”, will be held in Pasadena, CA on the Caltech campus from 13-15 March 2023, and will bring together experts in the community to discuss the benefit of the UVEX surveys to a broad range of research areas. The goal of the workshop is to offer the community a detailed introduction to the UVEX proposed capabilities, as well as the science...
Workshop • July 25th - 29th, 2022 • Hybrid
Join us for the 22nd Sagan Summer Workshop! The 2022 Sagan Summer Workshop will focus on the topic of exoplanet science in the Gaia era.
Workshop • March 22nd, 2022 • Virtual
The goal of this community workshop is to discuss and refine the science that could be accomplished with the PRIMA far-IR probe within the cost and schedule envelopes outlined by the 2020 Decadal survey.
Workshop • January 11th, 2022 • Zoom
Despite the cancellation of the AAS, on Tue Jan 11th between 1-4pm Pacific (4-7pm Eastern), we plan to hold the planned splinter on Joint Survey Processing (JSP) on Zoom. This is a step towards building formal quantitative photometric, astrometric and data product requirements for each science area. In conjunction with the AURA Rubin-Roman synergies effort and the Rubin-Euclid Derived Data Products effort,...
Workshop • July 20th - 24th, 2020 • Virtual Meeting
Join us for the 20th Sagan Summer Workshop! This year we will focus on the technique of Extreme Precision Radial Velocity (EPRV) for finding and characterizing exoplanets.
Workshop • January 7th, 2020 • Hawai’i Convention Center, Honolulu, HI, USA
With the inflow of large amounts of data taken by the next generation of telescopes, Machine Learning (ML) techniques are becoming more and more important for astronomers. The goal of this workshop is to open the door to various ML techniques for astronomers. The workshop is organized in three tutorials of different difficulty levels to reach a broad level of expertise. Participants learn using Jupyter...
Workshop • July 15th - 19th, 2019 • Baxter Auditorium, Caltech
The 2019 Sagan Summer Workshop will focus on astrobiology. It will feature introductions on the formation of Earth and terrestrial planets, their evolution over time, current geochemical cycles on Earth, and the emergence of life on Earth. Our knowledge of Exo-Earths will be reviewed, including demographics, composition, atmospheric signatures, and comparison with Earth. Detection of biosignatures, with an...
Workshop • December 4th - 7th, 2018 • Pasadena, CA
Please register by midnight (PDT) on Wednesday October 31st 2018. Aimed at facilitating community preparation for the 2020 astronomy and astrophysics Decadal Survey, this meeting will provide a forum for reviewing the major science drivers for the coming decade, discussing the anticipated datasets from proposed missions and facilities, and considering the computing, networking, and data archiving tools and...
Workshop • October 19th - 20th, 2018 • Caltech
A community workshop hosted by the ATLAS Probe Team (October 19-20, 2018, Caltech). This workshop will gather scientists and engineers to discuss the science drivers and design optimizations for the next generation spectroscopic missions.
Workshop • August 7th - 11th, 2017 • Pasadena, CA
The Sagan Exoplanet Summer Workshop organized by the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute at Caltech/IPAC begins Aug 7 at Caltech. More than 80 participants expected to convene in Pasadena to learn about planet searches and microlensing, with application to WFIRST, Gaia, and Euclid.
