The 2nd Advanced School on Exoplanetary Science will be held at the International Institute for Advanced Scientific Studies (IIASS) in Vietri sul Mare (Salerno), Italy from 22 to 26 May, 2017. The School - taking place in the enchanting Amalfi Coast - is aimed to provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art picture of a variety of relevant aspects of the fast-developing, highly interdisciplinary field of Exoplanet research. The Lecture topics of the 2nd year of School will be focused on the atmospheres of exoplanets. The Lectures will be delivered by four senior researchers to an audience of graduate students, Ph.D. students and young post-docs.
The Lecture Notes of the 2nd Advanced School on Exoplanetary Science will be published by Springer in its Astrophysics and Space Science Library series. A copy of the book will be sent to each participant.
Transmission and emission spectra, high resolution cross-correlation spectra, direct spectra
Chemical compositions, physical processes and dynamics of exoplanetary atmospheres
Fundamentals of the molecular spectroscopy of exoplanets: laboratory astrophysics for aiding in the understanding of exoplanetary atmospheres
Atmospheres of planets in the Solar system and general physical principles governing atmospheric systems
The School is open to graduate students and young post-doctoral researchers, and offers the fascinating possibility to interact with world-class experts engaged in different areas of planetary atmospheres.
The school format will include 7 hours of lectures for each topic, one afternoon training session with exercises to be worked out by the participants, and a selection of short presentations by School participants on their specific research.
