The Chesapeake Bay Area Exoplanet Meeting brings together scientists who work on exoplanets and related topics from the DC area and beyond. This series of one-day meetings enable the sharing of ideas in an informal setting with the focus being on building collaborations and expertise.

Agenda

The next meeting will be hosted by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. In keeping with the spirit of the Bay Area Exoplanet and the National Capitol Area Disk meetings, there will be plenty of time for discussion and building collaborations. We are soliciting contributed talks, with a special focus on talks from students, post-docs, and visitors. Since we plan to have these meetings several times a year, we hope that everyone that is interested will be able talk about their current research.

Each meeting also features invited speakers. The next meeting's invited speaker will be Vikki Meadows.

Apply to give a talk

This meeting relies on people giving contributed talks. We especially encourage visitors, new arrivals, students, and post-docs to give talks. Please also invite others who may be interested in attending, including people from outside the DC area. Please do not hesitate to request a talk even if you think that your presentation will be very short; we have found that even the most simple talks usually need 20 minutes to allow for adequate discussion. The deadline to request a talk for the next meeting is April 23rd.

Please use THIS FORM to submit a talk request.

Location

The meetings are held at locations in DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia. The next Chexo meeting is scheduled for Friday, May 10, 2019 and will be hosted by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.

This facility requires that foreign visitors who are planning to attend the meeting submit the following information to Brian Crawford (Brian.P.Crawford@jhuapl.edu) with the subject “Chexo Foreign Visitor Information” by COB April 15th: name, date of birth, country of citizenship, country represented, affiliation.

No additional registration information is required for US citizens or green card holders (but please bring your green card in case APL security requests it).

APL has a cafeteria right across from the room where we will be. There is also a Chick-fil-A and several other restaurants (Asian, Mexican, pizza, BBQ, Subway, Indian) within a very short drive.

The parking will be free and on-site. We will send a map showing locations that are closest to the conference room in a future email. Additional logistical details are forthcoming.
