Division F: Planetary Systems and Astrobiology

Division F Days : Planetary Systems and Astrobiology

Scientific rationale:

The purpose of this meeting is to provide an overview of the most recent and relevant results for all topics of our Division and Commissions. Researchers can present their new findings through this two-day workshop in the form of an oral or poster presentation (4 sessions of 1h:30m: 2 on Friday 8/9 and 2 on Monday 8/12 + poster sessions).
