We are on the cusp of an exciting growth in the number of exoplanet scientists in the Pasadena/Southern California area. To take advantage of this new dynamism we are organizing An 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 hope that ExSoCal will become an annual event and we have set aside September 24 and 25 in Cahill's Hameetman auditorium to welcome the many new exoplanet researchers who will be arriving in the fall, including, of course, new grad students. We envision a 2 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 colleagues.
