This international conference is devoted to the astrophysics of
exoplanets. Among the more than 5000 exoplanets and candidates
discovered so far are many extreme systems that are quite unlike our
own solar system. Understanding these exoplanets, in conjunction with
protoplanetary disks and the solar system planets, can provide new
insights into the structure, formation and evolution of planetary
The conference will consist of invited/solicited talks (mostly chosen
from submitted abstracts) and posters. While all topics (observation
and theory) of exoplanetary science are welcome, a general theme is
planetary formation and evolution. To this end, related topics on
protoplanetary disks and solar system planets will also be covered.
