Tracing long-period exoplanet orbits

Seminar Date:

The importance of discovering thousands of long-period exoplanets with up to 40 years period seems obvious. This can only be done with astrometric data from Hipparcos, Gaia and a Gaia-like mission in 20 years as I have proposed. I would like to discuss my proposal with you.
I have been invited to give a 45 min contribution as basis for discussion at a workshop in Cambridge on 6-8 July about a successor mission for Gaia. More information is provided here:

In the seminar I will focus on the exoplanet case as shown in the slides nr. 11-14 and also in Sect. 2.6 of the main report.
