The Sagan Exoplanet Summer Workshops are held annually and provide opportunities for students, postdocs, and researchers to learn about the engineering and scientific application of exoplanet-related techniques used in NASA's Exoplanet Exploration Program.
2013: workshop cancelled due to federal government sequestration
2009: Exoplanetary Atmospheres
Prior to 2008, the Sagan Summer Workshops were called the Michelson Summer Schools. They were aimed at advancing the communities' scientific and technical understanding of the objectives of the Navigator Program. No workshop was held in 2008 and workshops from 1999-2002 were hosted by institutions other than the Michelson Science Center/NExScI.
2003: Interferometry Overview
2002: Interferometry Theory and Techniques
2001: Interferometry Techniques
2000: Astrophysics with Optical Interferometry
NExScI has had a role in organizing the following conferences.
November 2004: Star-Planet Interactions and Implications For Habitability
The Sagan Fellows Symposia are held every 2-3 years and are for current and past Sagan/Michelson graduate student and postdoctoral fellows to present current or past research results and will highlight many of their cutting-edge efforts as well as to discuss career paths and to network. All interested parties are welcome to attend.
