NASA ExoPAG Convenes in Conjunction with 223rd AAS Meeting
NASA's Exoplanet Exploration Program Analysis Group (ExoPAG) will hold its ninth meeting Saturday-Sunday, 4-5 January 2014, just prior to, and at the same venue as, the 223rd AAS meeting in Washington, DC. ExoPAG meetings are open to the entire scientific community. They offer an opportunity to participate in discussions of scientific and technical issues in exoplanet exploration and to provide input into NASA's Exoplanet Exploration Program (ExEP). All interested members of the astronomical and planetary-science communities are invited to attend and participate.
The most up-to-date agenda, as well as details of the meeting logistics, can be found on the ExoPAG website. Agenda topics include a mini workshop on the potential for characterization of exoplanets with the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), reports from the active Study Analysis Groups (SAGs), a joint meeting of the ExoPAG and Cosmic Origins Program Analysis Group (COPAG), and a discussion of the community's near-term strategy for exoplanet exploration.
Questions can be sent to Scott Gaudi, ExoPAG Executive Committee Chair, and/or Douglas Hudgins, ExoPAG Executive Secretary. News and information about NASA's ExoPAG and the ExoPAG 9 meeting, including hotel information, can be found on the ExoPAG website.
