Course

Exoplanets

The aim of the course is to give participants a thorough multidisciplinary introduction into the field of exoplanets, their detection, types, characterization, and to explore the possibility of life on exoplanets. In addition, more general planetary subjects like formation of planetary systems, habitability of planets, and physical processes in planetary atmospheres will be covered. To give participants some hands-on experience with detection of exoplanets, observations of several exoplanet transits using the Nordic Optical Telescope will be carried out. The course is open to PhD students and early career scientists (up to 8 years after their first Ph. D.) from all countries. It is co-organised by the Nordic Network of Astrobiology and the EU COST Action "Origin and Evolution of Life on Earth and in the Universe". The deadline for application is 15 July 2014 23:59:00 UTC
