(Exo)Planet Diversity,

Formation and Evolution

September 12 – 14, 2022
Freie Universität Berlin
GeoCampus Lankwitz
Hybrid Meeting

We had a great meeting with a wide range of topics and engaging discussion of all things planetary. Thank you to all the participants!

About the meeting

In order to foster collaborations across fields, this PFE-SPP1992 joint meeting aims at being a platform for researchers from the scientific fields of exoplanets, planet formation, protoplanetary and debris disks, astrobiology, cosmochemistry, and planetary research in general. The organizers also want to encourage contributions from all disciplines, i.e. theory, observations as well as numerical and laboratory studies. The overarching goal of this meeting is to stimulate and intensify the dialogue between researchers from these different fields.

About the SPP 1992 “Exoplanet Diversity”

The SPP 1992 is a priority program (in German: SchwerPunktProgramm) funded by the German Research Foundation. It addresses the diversity and complexity of exoplanets by linking observational methods for planet detection and characterization with theory and modeling.

About the “Planet Formation and Evolution” (PFE) workshop

The German community of researchers working in the fields of planet formation, exoplanets and planetary systems, protoplanetary and debris disks, astrobiology, and planetary research in general organizes the workshops “Planet Formation and Evolution” since 2001. The meetings in the series are typically held every 1,5 years at different German universities that host research groups actively working on these topics. This workshop will be the 13th in the series. 

PFE meetings are usually attended by up to 150 participants from all parts of Germany with a broad international participation. Following the spirit of the previous very stimulating meetings, the goal of this workshop is to provide a common platform for scientists working in the fields listed above. Most importantly, this workshop is aimed at stimulating and intensifying the dialogue between researchers using various approaches – observations, theory, and laboratory studies. In particular, students and postdocs are encouraged to present their results and to use the opportunity to learn more about the main questions and most recent results in adjacent fields.
