The 5th Planet Formation Workshop will be held during 19 - 21 September 2007 in the "Aula" of the Technical University at Braunschweig. The workshop will be organized by the Institute for Geophysics and extraterrestrial Physics in cooperation with the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research.

The workshop's aim is to intensify the interaction between the different research fields and to stimulate the dialog between theory, observation and laboratory studies. As a continuation of previous workshops in Berlin, Weimar, Münster and Heidelberg, the forthcoming 5th Planet Formation Workshop will thematically focus on planetary sciences, but will also involve the related research fields on extrasolar planets, protoplanetary disks and solar system research.

Registration and abstract submission are now open. The registration form can be found here. The form for submission of abstracts can be found here. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 15 August 2007. On-site registration is also possible.
