Kick-Off Meeting

27.2.2018-01.03.2018 at DLR,

Berlin Adlershof, Rutherfordstr. 2, 12489 Berlin

 

 


 

Registration:

Please send an email to spp1992@astro.physik.tu-berlin.de with the following information for each attendee:

  • Title of your SPP1992 Project,
  • First Name, Last Name

Program

The Program is organized in six sessions of different main topics. For each session we have one coordinator. The coordinators will get into contact with you. Presentation of poster will be possible.

Sessions:

Each Session will be dedicated to one or two of the main topics of the SPP 1992. We sorted the projects accordingly. The idea is that all people involved in a session will self-organize and prepare the session together.

 

Session 1

Topic: Formation and composition

Coordinator: T. Birnstiel

  • Pebble accretion and the composition of exoplanets (T. Birnstiel, LMU München, C. Dullemond, Univ. Heidelberg)
  • Composition of planets with an N-body-Monte-Carlo approach (C. Dullemond, Univ. Heidelberg)
  • Characterization of young accreting planets (H. Klahr, Univ. Heidelberg, Sebastian Wolf, Univ. Kiel)
  • The implementation of consistent planetesimal formation in the population synthesis of Exo-Planets (H. Klahr, Univ. Heidelberg)
  • The Formation and Evolution of resonant planetary Systems (W. Kley, Univ. Tübingen)
  • How planetary systems are shaped by their birthplace (R. Spurzem, Univ. Heidelberg)

 

Session 2

Topic: Planet Detection

Coordinator: T. Schmidt

  • Detection and Characterization of sub-Jovian Planets with NGTS (Ph. Eigmüller, H. Rauer, Berlin)
  • Cool Earths: Discovering Exoplanets beyond the Snow-line with Gravitational Microlensing (J. Wambsganß, Univ. Heidelberg)
