We are pleased to announce the sixth Emerging Researchers in Exoplanet Science Symposium (ERES), to be held May 24-26, 2021.

ERES is aimed at early career scientists (graduate student, postdoc, advanced undergraduate) working in all branches of exoplanetary science and related disciplines. Its purpose is to give these emerging researchers the opportunity to present their research to an interested audience, to provide opportunities to network with peers, and to enhance collaborations within the exoplanet community.

ERES has been held annually on a rotating basis between partner institutions since 2015 (see 1,2,3,4,5). Current partners include Cornell, Penn State, Princeton, and Yale.

In 2021, we had hoped to organize an in-person conference at Princeton. We expect however that the online format will provide many benefits. Along with plenary and session talks, the event will include discussion panels, focused on career development and public engagement respectively. There will also be a virtual poster session, and time for lightly structured interaction via gather.town. Per popular request, there will also be trivia. See the schedule.

The event is scheduled for 1-5pm Eastern, May 24-26, 2021. It will be live and synchronous.
