16 – 21 June 2024
Leiden, the Netherlands


On Wednesday afternoon, 19 June, several Splinter Sessions will be offered. Please select the session(s) you plan to attend in the app.

Disentangling stellar and planetary signals

Sara Seager, Alexander Shapiro, Lucas Ellerbroek

Grote Zaal

13.00 – 15.00 hrs.: Part 1
15.00 – 15.30 hrs.: Coffee & tea break
15.30 – 17.30 hrs.: Part 2

This splinter session aims to foster a dynamic exchange of the latest insights on the challenges and solutions related to distinguishing between stellar and planetary signals. Part I of the session is for transmission spectra, and Part II for radial velocity planet finding. We encourage participants to bring a single slide that highlights new data, identifies emerging problems, or proposes innovative solutions to stimulate a focused discussion. This session is designed for researchers eager to share their work and engage in constructive dialogue to advance our understanding in this critical area of study. Hosted by the REVEAL Consortium.
Please RSVP for organizational purposes (and note this is in addition to the separate Conference App selection):

Beta Pictoris: dust, disks, dynamics and planets

Anne-Marie Lagrange, Anthony Boccaletti, Matthew Kenworthy


13.00 – 15.00 hrs.: Part 1
15.00 – 15.30 hrs.: Coffee & tea break
15.30 – 16.30 hrs.: Part 2

Bringing Beta Pictoris experts together to review the latest observations and theory to build an overview of this iconic young planetary system.

No Exoplanetary Photon Left Behind: A Tutorial to the Planetary Spectrum Generator

Vincent Kofman, Thomas Fauchez


13.00-14.00 hrs.

The Planetary Spectrum Generator is widely used within the community to simulate observations of exoplanets, ranging emission from tidally locked rocky worlds, to transiting giants, and reflected light of Earth-like planets around sun like stars. The tool is equipped with a telescope/noise simulator, a retrieval package, and full 3D spectral calculation interface. In this tutorial, we will demonstrate the use the Planetary Spectrum Generator and run a number of live examples.

What’s Cookin’ Doc? A CUISINES meeting

Denis Sergeev


14.00-15.00 hrs.

This meeting is for the participants and for those interested to join the NASA Nexus for Exoplanet System Science (NExSS) CUISINES Working Group (https://nexss.info/cuisines) – an international collaboration in exoplanet model intercomparison projects (MIPs), promoting best scientific practices and maximising scientific output, and striving for a broad and inclusive community participation. The programme will include the recent updates from individual MIPs and inter-MIP discussions.
