1 – 26 June 2020
Munich Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics (MIAPP)
Organizers: Man Hoi Lee, Nader Haghighipour, Soko Matsumura, Hilke Schlichting
It gives us great pleasure to announce the 2020 Planet Formation program at the Munich Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics (MIAPP) in Garching, Germany. The program will be held on June 1-26, 2020. This four-week program aims to bring together experts with
complementary expertise in observation and theory in solar system and extrasolar planetary astronomy to assess the current status of planet formation models, highlight problems in each formation stage, and explore the possibility of developing comprehensive models that can be applied to different planetary systems. Please see the program website for more details: http://www.munich-iapp.de/planetformation
The structure of the program will be informal. The main goal of the program is to create an environment that will facilitate collaborations and new initiatives. There will be daily gathering for discussing specific topics, new results, and brain storming.
Each attendee will be provided with an office and Internet access. Financial support at the rate of EUR 80 per day will be provided for accommodation and local expenses. Additional financial support for attendees with family and children and for graduate students is available.
Details with regard to financial support can be found at http://www.munich-iapp.de/home/information-for-participants/financial-support/
In order to attend, it is necessary to apply to the program. Please go to the program website (http://www.munich-iapp.de/planetformation), scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on “Register here” (that is actually the link to apply for the program).
Please note that the *application deadline is September 1, 2019.
* Please also note that MIAPP requires attendance for at least two weeks and that the program can accommodate only 45 attendees in each week. So please apply early.
We invite and encourage you to apply. We also request that you kindly pass this information to your colleagues, collaborators, students and postdocs who are involved and/or interested in planet formation.
Looking forward to receiving your applications.
