EXOA1

Towards a better understanding of planets' and planetary systems' diversity
Conveners: Francisco J. Pozuelos, Giuseppe Morello | Co-conveners: Judith Korth, Achrène Dyrek, Jaume Orell-Miquel, Camilla Danielski

The impressive rate of exoplanet discoveries nowadays is driven by the synergies between different observational techniques and space-based missions. This confluence of efforts reveals a great variety of planets and planetary systems that challenge our understanding of planetary formation and evolution, planetary occurrences, physical-chemistry properties, and system architectures.
Hence, in this session, we aim to bring together recent results and studies performed by observers, modelers, and experimentalists, and a combination of them to open discussions about the pathways that the community needs to follow to understand the exoplanetary variety fully and promote and inspire the collaboration between teams with different expertise. In particular, this session welcomes any abstract related to the following topics:

(1) groundbreaking discoveries of planets and systems of special interest (due to peculiar physical properties/orbital architectures, amenable targets for atmospheric investigations, etc.);
(2) cutting-edge measurements of exoplanet properties (tidal distortions, spin rates, and angles) and first tentative detections of satellites or rings;
(3) contributions to the general picture of exoplanets (precise measurements of radii, masses and internal planetary compositions, observed/theoretical populations, occurrences, etc.);
(4) demographics studies out of detection surveys from the ground- and/or space-based observatories;
(5) synergies between different techniques for comprehensive exoplanet characterization (photometry, low and high-resolution spectroscopy, radial velocities, transit timing variations, radio observations, etc.);
(6) new tools and software developments for exoplanet searches and characterization (Artificial Intelligence tools, new methodologies and computational architectures, open-source initiatives, etc.)
