The Cavendish Laboratory and Institute of Astronomy (IoA) organised the first exoplanet UK community meeting on April 14-16 2014.

Rationale: UK research activities within the field of exoplanets have significantly expanded in the last few years. Many members of this growing community are actively engaged in space missions, the development of ground-based facilities, intensive use of available resources, and new theoretical developments. The purpose of this meeting is to encourage interactions between groups and researchers working on these topics, and to help foster new collaborations. We hope active groups and individuals will attend and present their research, especially PhD students and postdocs. Topics addressing general aspects relevant for the community may be proposed as well (e.g. the road map, space mission support, etc.).
The meeting is intended for the UK community, but not restricted to it. Participants from abroad are welcome to attend and to submit abstracts.
