2018 Sagan Exoplanet Summer Workshop

Did I Really Just Find an Exoplanet?

POP Presentation Schedule and Poster Listing

Posters will be up all week just outside Beckman Institute Auditorium. There will be two dedicated poster sessions, Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon. Please see the listing below for the poster presenters for each day.

The space available for each poster is 4' x 4' (1.2 m x 1.2 m).
