IAU-Symposium: Complex Planetary Systems
07-11 July 2014, Namur, Belgium
All the planetary systems, from the Earth-Moon system to the extrasolar ones, are complex systems, requiring several levels of expertise and of interdisciplinarity to be clearly understood. The symposium aims to bring forward the latest findings obtained in that perspective and to generate new collaborations for the future. Any astronomer involved in planetary systems, at any level, is invited to participate to the meeting and to propose its own expertise in future complex challenges.
Key topics of the symposium:
- The Solar System: formation, migration, models
- The formation of extrasolar systems: tides, dissipation, resonances
- The dynamics of exoplanets: rotational and orbital motions
- The rotation models and internal structure of planets and satellites
- The giant planets systems: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus
- The Earth-Moon system: formation, satellites and debris
- The small bodies system: evolution and history
- The dynamics of asteroids: rotation, binary, satellites
- The complex algorithms and tools
