Organized since 2001 - by the German community of researchers working in the fields of planet formation, exoplanets and planetary systems, protoplanetary and debris disks, astrobiology, and planetary research in general - the workshops "Planet Formation and Evolution" are usually attended by up to 150 participants from all parts of Germany with a broad international participation.
These workshops aim to stimulate and intensify the dialogue between researchers using various approaches - observations, theory, and laboratory studies. Students and postdocs are encouraged to present their results in "poster sessions". The best poster is rewarded at the end of the presentations.
This year, Anaïs Kobsch was rewarded for her poster entitled Critical point of feldspars.
