Exoplanets and brown dwarfs: mind the gap


2-5 September 2013
University of Hertfordshire


This year represents a milestone of sorts as the 18th anniversary of the
first discoveries of both planets around Sun-like stars and brown dwarfs.
The last 18 years have seen the study of these fascinating objects
flourish into diverse and exciting astronomical fields. However, as these
scientific siblings reach adulthood, there is a danger of missed
opportunities as they drift apart.

The aim of this meeting is to bring the exoplanet and brown dwarf
communities together to explore common science questions, share exciting
results, and foster collaboration to overcome shared challenges.

Please see our webpage (http://star.herts.ac.uk/mindthegap/) for outline
session headings, details of our (medieval) conference banquet at historic
Hatfield House, and for registration.

We look forward to seeing you in September!
