›Transiting Planets in the House of the Sun: A workshop on M dwarf stars and their planets
This workshop will provide an introductory but authoritative review of M dwarf stars and the detection, formation, and potential habitability of their planets. It is principally intended for advanced graduate students and junior postdocs, but investigators at all levels are welcome to apply. The workshop will consist of invited lectures, contributed research presentations, and a field trip to the summit and observatory of Haleakala to observe the transit of Venus across the Sun. A transit of Earth (from the vantage of the Moon) will also be observable on June 3.
