16 – 21 June 2024
Leiden, the Netherlands

Exoplaneteers from all over the world, it’s time for the mother of all conferences!

You are cordially invited for the Exoplanets 5 conference in Leiden, The Netherlands, 16-21 June 2024. The Exoplanets Conference Series (Davos 2016; Cambridge 2018, Heidelberg 2020, Las Vegas 2022) has developed into one of the most important and largest meetings in the field, with 750 participants expected in Leiden.

The conference covers all aspects of exoplanet science, from detection methods and demographics to planet interiors and atmospheric characterization, from planet formation and evolution, to star-planet interactions and exoplanet instrumentation. There will be special attention to the newest and most exciting JWST results.

Leiden is a charming university town, in the heart of western Europe, well connected by rail and Amsterdam airport. The conference will take place in the Stadsgehoorzaal, in the middle of Leiden’s historic center with its many 17th-century canals and cobblestone streets. Since meetings like these have a large impact on the environment, we encourage everyone to look at combining your visit with other meetings, work visits, or holidays. We will have an action-packed week of presentations, in addition to a very exciting list of invited keynote speakers. Equally important, there will be plenty of time to meet and interact with all your colleagues of our global exoplanet community. Do not forget the Welcome Reception on Sunday, and the Big Exoplanets 5 Solar-Solstice Party™ in the Botanic Gardens on Thursday night!

We hope to welcome you in Leiden in June 2024.
