The space telescope TESS was launched last year to conduct an extensive survey of exoplanets orbiting nearby bright stars, which will be followed by precise measurements with CHEOPS launched this autumn. Furthermore, spectroscopic observations of those transiting planets will be extensively conducted by scheduled missions such as JWST, ARIEL, and WSO-UV. We are about to enter the age of characterization of exoplanet atmospheres, which is a crucial milestone also in habitable planet science. Also recent solar-system missions have brought much new knowledge of the solar-system planets and small bodies. Against this background, we will hold a symposium that brings together scientists from a broad range of research topics such as planetary atmospheres, habitability, and planet formation and evolution, aiming for the participants to share current understanding regarding such important topics for the extra-solar and solar-system planets. We hope that you will actively join this exciting symposium and look forward very much to seeing you in Okinawa.

Just for your information, there are some relatively cheaper hotels around the venue. From those hotels, however, it will take at least 20 minutes to walk to the venue.
There will be no talks on the afternoon of Wednesday 16th.
We will organize a trip to Nakijin Castle Ruins (World Heritage) and Kouri Island.
The prepayment fee of the excursion is 3,000 JPY (includes the cost of the bus, admission fees for each place).
If it rains, we will go to Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium , instead of Nakijin Castle Ruins and Kouri Island.
