Abstract

Origins of Solar Systems is an interdisciplinary meeting designed to bring together astronomers and cosmochemists for discussing the latest work on planet formation. Astronomical facilities are bringing online instrumentation to measure the composition of planet-forming material and planets themselves. Thanks to a combination of transit and radial velocity observations, the mass-radius relation of rocky exoplanets should be much better determined by the time of this meeting. We will attempt to connect the dots between spectroscopy of disks, spectroscopy of exoplanet atmospheres, and mass-radius relations, using the solar system as our guide.
