The AIP aims to bring together the astrophysics community to discuss exoplanet atmospheres in high spectral resolution in its Thinkshop series. We therefore invite scientists to come to Potsdam to discuss the latest techniques for observations, their analysis, and the next-generation instruments in September 2022. The AIP is a member of the ELT-ANDES consortium.

The focus topics for the workshop will be:

- Observation, analysis and modelling of high-resolution exoplanet spectra

- Scientific insights from combinations of different data types

- Detectability of biomarkers

- Future instrumentation
