Dr. Hui-Gen Liu got his PhD from Nanjing University in 2011. Now he is a faculty of School of Astronomy and Space Science of Nanjing University. His research interest focus on the dynamical evolution and formation of planetary systems, especially the influences of the circumstellar gas disk. Connection email: huigen@nju.edu.cn.

Dr. Hui Zhang got his PhD from Nanjing University in 2008. Now He is an associate professor of the school of Astronomy and Space Science in Nanjing University. His research interests cover the formation, evolution and detection of the exoplanet system, e.g. the interaction between the proto-stellar disk and the proto-planet, dynamics of multiple-exoplanet system, detection of the transiting exoplanets, etc. Connection email: huizhang@nju.edu.cn.

Prof. Yi-Sui Sun

Prof. Yi-Sui Sun graduated from department of astronomy, Nanjing university in 1958, and became a professor of Nanjing university in 1983. His major research area is celestial mechainics and nonlinear sciences, exoplanet dynamics and publish around 100 papers. He first discovered and proved together with Prof. Cheng Chongqing the exsitence of 2-dimensional invariant tori in 3-dimensional volume-preserving maps. Due to his pioneering works on the worked field, he was elected as an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1997 . He was the chief scientist of the State "Pandeng" Program and the State Key Basic Research Program ("973"). In his scientific career, He have won some awards, including the National Natural Science Award (2nd class) in 2001, the Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation for Scientific and Technological Progress Award in 2001.Connection email: sunys@nju.edu.cn.
