Exoplanets are being discovered in large numbers thanks to recent and ongoing surveys using state-of-the-art instrumentation from the ground and from space. In the next years, new astronomical instruments will further scout our Galaxy to overcome the current observational biases in the search of alien worlds, to gain a deeper understanding of the chemical and physical properties of exoplanets, and to unveil the processes of formation and evolution of planets and their atmospheres.


The goal of this session is to bring together the instrumentation and observational communities that are underpinning the future of this field. Contributions are invited to review ongoing programmes of exoplanet discovery and characterisation, to update on the progress of planned instrumentation programmes, and to present innovative ideas for future instrumentation.
