This session focuses on extrasolar planets and planet formation. Papers presenting theoretical, observational, or experimental results pertaining to -- or applicable to -- the characterization of planetary atmospheres, interiors, and orbits and modeling of planet formation process are sought.

A primary purpose of the session is to provide the opportunity to bring together researchers working in different fields (e.g., planetary science, astronomy, atmospheric science, mathematical sciences, etc.) to interact and exchange ideas, lessons, and techniques to address this rapidly evolving, highly interdisciplinary research area.

Some examples of a contributed paper might be: atmospheric modeling (dynamics, radiative transfer, chemistry, spectra), interior evolution, core accretion, gravitational instability, MHD and hydrodynamic disks, dust dynamics, planetesimal evolution, giant impacts, orbital characteristics, numerical methods, observational and laboratory measurements and techniques, and comparisons with the solar system.
