Exoplanet science continues to be a rapidly increasing field in Southern California. To capitalise on this, we are organising the third annual Exoplanet Orbital Interaction, to allow members of the exoplanet community get to know one another and to learn about the many opportunities for collaborations.

We have set aside September 18 and 19 in Caltech's Beckman Institute Auditorium to welcome the many new exoplanet researchers who will be arriving in the fall, including, of course, new grad students. We are planning a two-day event with a few invited presentations, but with an emphasis on contributed talks by our new arrivals. In addition to Caltech, IPAC/NExScI, and JPL scientists, we are extending an invitation to our Carnegie and local University of California and California State University colleagues.

More information on the agenda and invited speakers will be coming in a few weeks.
