BDEXOCON 2014

In October 2014 we held the first brown dwarf to exoplanet connection meeting.  You can see the line-up here

We will build upon the excellent conversations from the first meeting regarding atmospheres, formation mechanisms, and evolution of very low mass compact sources (inclusive of brown dwarfs, exoplanets, and solar system objects).
