The rich diversity of extrasolar planet systems provides a
daunting yet exciting challenge to our theories of planetary
formation. Disc-driven migration, tides, planet-planet gravitational scattering, disc gravitational instability, and long-term dynamical interactions are just a few of the processes that may play important roles in determining the planetary mass distribution and orbital architectures of planetary systems.
The aim of this session is to review our current models of
planet formation and the interplay between the various processes involved, and to discuss ideas for future development. Contributions are invited that cover all aspects of planetary formation, protoplanetary disc evolution, and long-term dynamical evolution of planetary systems.
