XMM-Newton 2021 Science Workshop



A high-energy view of exoplanets and their environments

The workshop will be held as a video conference.

Further details will be posted in due time.


This workshop will bring together scientists working on exoplanets and their environments in relation to observables in the high-energy band with XMM-Newton and Chandra. Topics such as exoplanetary atmospheres, stellar high-energy irradiation, exoplanet formation, and interactions between stars and exoplanets will be explored. The wealth of current and upcoming exoplanet discovery missions such as TESS, CHEOPS and PLATO, as well as the continuing bright future of high-energy observations with missions like eROSITA and Athena make this workshop a timely event.
