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.
2022: Exoplanet Science in the Gaia Era, July 25-29, 2022 (website coming soon)
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
1999: Interferometry Summer School
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.
