NASA's Exoplanet Exploration Program Analysis Group (ExoPAG) will hold its seventh meeting on Saturday-Sunday, January 5-6, 2013, just prior to the 221st AAS meeting in Long Beach, CA. ExoPAG meetings are open to the entire scientific community, and offer an opportunity to participate in discussions of scientific and technical issues in exoplanet exploration, and to provide input into NASA's Exoplanet Exploration Program (ExEP). All interested members of the astronomical and planetary science communities are invited to attend and participate.

ExoPAG-7 will continue to focus on expanding the inclusiveness of NASA's Exoplanet Exploration Program (ExEP) to the wider exoplanet community. In particular, the ExoPAG is soliciting input on novel ways in which NASA might facilitate exoplanet research over the next few years, and suggestions for topics and/or speakers at the meeting along these lines are welcome.

Suggestions can be sent to Prof. Scott Gaudi, ExoPAG Chair (, and/or Dr. Douglas Hudgins, ExoPAG Executive Secretary ( News and information about NASA's ExoPAG and the ExoPAG-7 meeting can be found on the ExoPAG web site at
