Chesapeake Bay Area Exoplanet Meeting
Friday 24 of January 2020 10am - 5pm
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.
The next meeting will be hosted by Carnegie DTM. In keeping with the spirit of the Bay Area Exoplanet and the National Capitol Area Disk meetings, we aim to have plenty of time for discussion and building collaborations. We solicit 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 an invited speaker. The next meeting's invited speaker is Néstor Espinoza (Space Telescope Science Institute).
In addition to talks, we are able to accommodate a few posters, so if you're interested in sharing one feel free to bring it with you. We also expect to have time for flash talks/announcements, so you are welcome to make a slide or two to showcase your poster or other announcement.
In order to prepare name tags in advance and to gauge how many people to order food for, we ask that you register in advance at the form found AT THIS LINK.
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 was December 13, 2019.
Please use THIS FORM to submit a talk request.
