Programme

Interactive and dynamic meeting

The Rocky Worlds conferences emphasise dynamic interactions between participants. Invited and contributed talks will take about half of each day, with the rest assigned to group discussions surrounding themes that are organised by the participants themselves. This way the workshops naturally reflect the diversity of topics and themes of interests of the participants and evolve together with the field.

Further details surrounding the Rocky Worlds II organisation will be announced closer to the workshop date. If you want to stay up-to-date with the workshop please register for our email list at Registration.

Breakout discussion sessions

Each afternoon the workshop will split into discussion groups surrounding topics that are aligned with the day's main theme (formation/interiors/atmospheres). Topical discussion groups are led by workshop participants and can be pitched during registration. In order to create a lively experience please suggest discussion topics that you want to see covered during the conference.

Topical discussion groups at Rocky Worlds I (example ideas)

  • Insights into exoplanet compositions from the Solar System, exoplanet atmospheres, and host star abundances

  • Planetary Volcanism, linking interiors to atmospheres

  • Tidal heating in the solar system and elsewhere

  • Bridging the gap from planet formation to rocky exoplanet evolution

  • Multi-parameter Approach to Habitability
