Take a Closer Look: The Innermost Region of Protoplanetary Discs and its Connection to the Origin of PlanetsReport on the ESO Workshop
No. 174 (December 2018), 44–47
About 150 scientists from all over the world convened at the ESO Headquarters to discuss the origin of close-in exoplanets and the properties of the inner regions of protoplanetary discs, where these planets are formed. In a cordial atmosphere, made possible by the collaborative attitude of the very diverse group of attendees, the discussion led to a deeper appreciation of the importance of several observing techniques and of advances in modelling to tackle key open questions. In addition, the participants had the chance to experience a special show at the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre, which highlighted the potential of this facility.
