Habitable Worlds 2017 : Habitable Worlds 2017: A System Science Workshop


When Nov 13, 2017 - Nov 17, 2017
Where Laramie, Wyoming
Submission Deadline Aug 3, 2017
Notification Due Sep 29, 2017

Call For Papers

The morning plenary sessions will consist of a mix of review and contributed talks. Rather than inviting speakers for the review talks, all talks will be selected from abstract submissions. Review topics are listed below and abstract submitters will have the opportunity to self-nominate to give a review talk.
Review Topics:
What does it mean to be habitable?
"Habitable zones" — A useful concept?
Habitable planet compositions
Habitability in the solar system
How do habitable conditions arise?
Formation of habitable planets
Planetary system dynamics
What are the indicators of these conditions?
Origins of life/early Earth/geosignatures
How can we observe these indicators?
Exoplanet characterization
Current and future observatories and missions
Abstracts not selected for talks will have the opportunity to be presented as posters. We will make every effort to provide ample time for poster viewing, subject to the space available.

Breakout Sessions:
Each afternoon will feature multiple breakout sessions devoted to interdisciplinary discussion. Breakout sessions can include a limited number of talks but will typically emphasize discussion over lectures. We expect to allot three hours for each breakout session. Organizers should also plan to present a short (~10 minute) summary of their session on Friday morning of the workshop.
Submit an abstract for a breakout session as you would for a talk or a poster. The submitter is responsible for organizing the breakout session. We encourage submissions from groups of interdisciplinary collaborators.
Breakout session choices will be driven by the proposals submitted. You are encouraged to team up to propose breakout sessions. Organizers might serve as a match maker, encouraging two proposers to work together if closely related proposals are submitted.
The format for a breakout session is flexible, but we present the following example as inspiration.
