Exoplanetary science, which began with the discovery of a hot Jupiter in 1995, has reached a major turning point by the discovery of countless super-Earths by the Kepler mission. More recently, planets that are similar in size to the Earth and also receive similar amounts of stellar radiation (namely, located in the so-called habitable zone) have been discovered around nearby stars such as Proxima Centauri and TRAPPIST-1. As a result, not only theoretical, but also observational studies on the atmospheres and surface environments of Earth-like exoplanets have been started. Moreover, the number of planets discovered around early-type and late-type stars has become large enough that the occurrence rate and orbital distribution of planets around a wide variety of host stars have become clear. Thus, new observational insights, which become the basis of pan-planet formation theory, are now gathering. While exoplanets have been mainly targeted for astronomy until recently, it can be said that earth planetary science is finally becoming a research field to make a central contribution. In this session, we aim to share cutting-edge research results in exoplanetary science which is in such a transition period.
