This one-week workshop is the third edition of the Observing Planetary Systems workshop (OPS-III) held every 5 years at ESO-Chile, which aims to bring together  Solar System and exoplanet scientific communities. The discovery of exoplanetary systems with a large variety of architectures can teach us about the formation and history of our own Solar System, and the deep understanding of our own environment can help us search for traces of life outside of the Solar System.  

The main topics are:
    a) the formation of planetary systems and their components;
    b) the architecture and evolution of planetary systems;
    c) small components of planetary systems;
    d) atmospheres and biomarkers.
