Transiting Exoplanets with JWST

Science Meeting
November 16 - 18, 2015
STScI, Baltimore MD

This workshop provided a forum for the transiting exoplanet community to learn about and discuss the capabilities of JWST to characterize transiting exoplanets. Talks informed potential observers about the cutting edge science that JWST will enable. Discussion sessions allowed for community dialog on how best to enable transiting exoplanet science with JWST. As JWST proposal opportunities approach, this workshop served as an important opportunity to understand how JWST will impact the field of transiting exoplanet science.
