The Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) has recently released the announcement of the Alpbach Summer School 2009 devoted to "Exoplanets: Discovering and characterizing Earth type planets" held from 21 - 30 July, 2009.

The Alpbach Summer School is well-known for its high scientific quality. It is held annually and a different topic is chosen each year. The Alpbach Summer School activities include lectures given by distinguished scientists as well as team-work and workshops.
