This international conference is devoted to the astrophysics of
exoplanets. Among the more than 5000 exoplanets discovered so far are
many extreme systems that are quite unlike our own Solar
System. Understanding these exoplanets, in conjuction with Solar
System planets and protoplanetary disks, can provide new insights into
the structure, formation and evolution of planets and planetary
systems.

The conference will consist of invited talks and contributed
talks/posters. While all topics of exoplanetary science are welcome,
a general theme is planet formation and evolution. To this end,
relavent topics on Solar system planetary science and protoplanetary
disks will also be covered.
