26-26 Apr 2021 Online (United Kingdom)


Welcome to the Scottish Exoplanet/Brown Dwarf Spring meeting 2021!

Motivated by the strength and breadth of (exo)planet and low-mass star research across Scotland, the Universities of Edinburgh and St Andrews have jointly hosted ten Scottish Exoplanet/Brown Dwarf meetings over the past 6 years. From instrumentational and observational members of our community, we have heard review talks and updates on the instrumentation and observations from CHEOPS, JWST, ExoMars, the SUPAscopes, and LSST. Whereas on the theoretical side, colleagues have given talks on a range of modelling topics such as; proto-planetary disks dynamics and thermochemistry, and the 3D modelling of exoplanet atmospheres and cloud formation.

New PhD students, postdocs, and incoming staff were welcomed to introduce their research to our Scottish Exoplanet/Brown Dwarf community.

In this meeting we heard about such work with the goal being to facilitate discussion and collaboration between Scotland-based exoplanet and brown dwarf researchers, and to provided a platform for junior community members to present results.

We therefore warmly invited you to join us for the 11th meeting of the Scottish Exoplanet / Brown Dwarf Spring meeting 2021 (SEBD11) that was held online on 26 April 2021.
