Institute of Astronomy


Final Announcement - 25/6/14

The conference is now fully booked and the final program can be viewed on the website.  All abstracts have been accepted as talks or posters.

Each session has an allotment of flexible scheduling time for questions and discussion.  This will allow, e.g., spontaneous and interesting discussions to run their course, rather than be postponed.  We ask speakers to respect this investment; invited talks are 25 min and contributed talks are 15 min.

We can only confidently accommodate a maximum poster size of A1 in portrait orientation.  Please do not bring posters larger than this.

Registration will be in the Hoyle Building foyer from 18:00 to 20:00 on Sunday 27 July, accompanied by a wine and cheese reception. If you are arriving later in the week, please visit the Registration Desk to pick up your delegate’s pack.

In addition to the conference banquet in Churchill on Wednesday evening and the reception Sunday, there will be two evening poster sessions on Monday and Thursday, including drinks.

We look forward to seeing everyone in Cambridge!

2nd Announcement - 16/12/13

This is the second announcement for the scientific conference "Characterizing Planetary Systems Across the HR Diagram" being held at the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge, UK on 28 July - 1 August 2014.

Importantly, interested participants should sign up using the Register Interest form to receive future announcements and reminders.

The website will eventually contain all the necessary information for participants, and all relevant information will be disseminated via email to those who register interest with the above link only.

The conference registration fee will be £200 with a limited number of half price registrations available only for students. The registration fee will include all conference materials, food and drink (including lunch) during the conference, evening drinks at the reception and poster sessions. The conference banquet will be held at Churchill College on Wednesday 30 July and cost £55 including three courses and a quality selection of wines.

Registration is expected to open on 27 January and remain open until 7 March or until capacity is reached. Full payment will be due at the time of registration, when registrants will simultaneously be able to submit an abstract for a contributed talk or poster.  The SOC expects to decide on contributed talks by the end of April.

We remind participants that the conference venue is limited to 150 people, and places will be given on a first come, first serve basis. Early registration is key to ensure participation, and further delegates beyond the maximum cannot be accommodated. However, a waiting list will be created and places given as cancellations are received.

There will be significant time devoted each day to discussions inspired by the various talks.  There will be no proceedings for this meeting, but we strongly encourage all participants to publish any results discussed at the meeting.

We look forward to welcoming many of you in Cambridge next summer!
