|Title of workshop: New Initiatives in the field of Exoplanetary Science in India
|Co-ordinators : Lalitha Sairam (IIA), Koshy George (IIA)
Due to improved observational techniques, both the rate of detection and our knowledge about extrasolar planets has been increasing. Since 1995, over several thousands of exoplanets have been discovered. While most of the known exoplanets remain Hot Jupiters, the frontier has inevitably approached the Earth-mass regime. To find planets like our own Earth requires a new sophisticated technology since they are much smaller and are more liable to be hidden by the glare of the parent star. The primary goal of this workshop is to introduce to the newest developments in exoplanetary science, and explore the challenges and opportunities in the field. We will also focus on the current status of ongoing planet search programs and future observations.
