PLATO Limb-Darkening Meeting #1, 26-27 Feb 2019, Granada

The main objective of this workshop is to bring together people from the exoplanet and stellar communities working on this topic, with particular emphasis on the work to be done in the context of the ESA PLATO mission.


The limb-darling parameter is nowadays an essential ingredient in stellar and planetary studies, hence the importance of this dedicated WP for the scientific preparation and future exploitation of the PLATO space mission. This parameter is frequently found during the exoplanetary transits’ fitting process. In this workshop we will discuss about alternative methods to determine the limb-darkening that help us to validate the values obtained.
