Astrophysics of Transiting Exoplanets

The 4th Advanced School on Exoplanetary Science will be held in Vietri sul Mare (Salerno), Italy from 22 to 26 May, 2023. The School - taking place close to the enchanting Amalfi Coast - is aimed to provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art picture of a variety of relevant aspects of the fast-developing, highly interdisciplinary field of Exoplanet research. The Lecture topics of the 4th edition of the School will be focused on the Astrophysics of Transiting Exoplanet Systems, covering both the theoretical and observational perspectives.

In particular, the following key topics will be covered:

  • The history and frontier of transiting exoplanets demographics
  • Successes as well as astrophysical and methodological challenges in the determination of accurate and precise transiting exoplanet masses and radii
  • Multi-transiting systems as tools for improving our knowledge of the origin and evolution of close-in, compact, high-multiplicity planetary systems
  • Theoretical mechanisms and observations of atmospheric escape from highly irradiated transiting planets
  • Atmospheric characterization of transiting exoplanets

The Lectures will be delivered by five senior researchers to an audience of graduate students and young post-docs.

Accommodation

For your stay, we recommend

Lloyd's Baia Hotel

Via Benedetto Croce

webpage: www.lloydsbaiahotel.it
e-mail: info@lloydsbaiahotel.it
Tel. +39 089 763 3111
google map: map
The Lloyd's Baia Hotel is very close to Vietri sul Mare, a village that is considered as the "first pearl" in the Amalfi Coast. The hotel's location is very strategic in that it allows to reach the centre of Salerno in just a few minutes and to visit the surrounding tourist attractions of the Amalfi Coast.

The arranged price (VAT included) per person per night, in shared triple room is € 65,00.

The arranged price (VAT included) per person per night, in shared double room is € 80,00.

The arranged price (VAT included) per person per night, in single room is € 149,00.

The accommodation includes breakfast and the access to the gym and beach. The Hotel offers a shuttle service to its guests for both arrivals and departures.

Please, in order to book your stay, fill out the Hotel Reservation Form and return it by email to both the Hotel (booking@lloydsbaiahotel.it) and the organisers (ases4@roma2.infn.it).
Accommodation form

Lunch / Dinner

If you want, you can have lunch and/or dinner at the hotel. The price is 35 €.
Otherwise you can easily reach the center of Vietri sul Mare, which is only a 5 minute walk away. In Vietri sul Mare, you will have a wide choice of restaurants and bars with various price ranges. Based on the proximity and judgments read on Tripadvosor, we recommend the following eating places: Pane e Panorama, Fame Zero, Ristorante Pizzeria Da Giufé, Risto Sud Est, Il Principe e la Civetta, Ristorante 34 da Lucia, Ristorante Sesta Stazione.

In the evening, you can also choose to go to the Vietri area near the beach (Marina di Vietri; 25 minute walk away from the Hotel), where there are other restaurants and bar lounges with music. Another good option is to go to the historical downtown of Salerno (35 minute walk away from the Hotel; 10 minutes by bus), which offers many solutions for having lunch and/or dinner or just for a drink.


Getting there

By air:

The best way to arrive at the Lloyd's Baia Hotel is from the airport of Naples (code NAP). On Sunday, May 21, two shuttles will be organised to take the participants from the airport of Naples to the Lloyd's Baia Hotel. One shuttle will leave at 12pm, the other at 6pm. Please, communicate your arrival times to the organisers (ases4@roma2.infn.it). If you prefer to come and leave at your time, please read the information on the right-hand panel.

Another way to arrive in Vietri sul Mare is from the airport of Rome. Read information below.

Route A

A1) Land at Rome Airport Fiumicino (FCO).
A2) From the Railway Station of the Airport, catch a train to Rome Railway Station (Leonardo Express).
A3) From Rome Railway Station, catch a train to Salerno Railway Station (TRENITALIA).
A4) From Salerno Railway Station catch bus n. 4 or n. 9 to Vietri (tickets cost € 1,00 at authorized retailers; Busitalia). See this google map.


By train:

Arrive at the Salerno Railway Station and then follow A4.

From Naples Airport Capodichino to Vietri sul Mare follow Route B

Route B

B1) Land at Naples Airport Capodichino (NAP). After your arrival, you have different ways to reach Salerno.
B2) From the airport you can take a bus for € 3,00 (called Alibus) to Naples central railway station; get off here for connections to Salerno via train and then follow A4. You can buy your ticket on the Alibus, and you can get it by walking right out of the airport terminal to the bus stop, which is less than 20 metres from the airport terminal exit.
B3) From Naples Airport there is a SITA bus running directly to Salerno (Euros 7). This bus runs only 4 times a day, and not on Sunday. You have to walk 300 meters to reach the bus. Once you arrive in Salerno, follow A4.
