• Mats Holmström: Swedish Space Research Institute (IRF), Kiruna, Sweden: (Numerical upgrade related to the 3D exosphere-magnetic obstacle modeling)
  • Yuri N. Kulikov: Polar Geophysical Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, Murmansk, Russia: (provide thermospheric models which are based on time-dependent hydrodynamic equations complimented by a perfect gas law and diffusive transport equations for neutral and ionized constituents which describe the thermal structure and dynamics of the bulk atmosphere in spherical coordinates.
  • Nikolai V. Erkaev: Institute of Computational Modeling, (ICM) Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, Akademgorodok, Krasnoyarsk, Russia: (implementation of an ideal MHD solar/stellar wind plasma flow model for the study of the influence on the ENAs production, ion escape and the influence on the position of the effective planetary obstacle - streamlined boundary).
  • Dmitry Bisikalo, Valery I. Shematovich: Institute for Astronomy (INASAN), Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia: Dmitry (cooperation in studies related to mass transfer processes studies in binaries and the application of HD and MHD models which are planned for the application of close-in exoplanets for studying the topology of the gas in the planet-star system and the corresponding dynamics.
  • Frank Selsis: Université Bordeaux 1, Bordeaux France: (will contribute as an expert in early atmospheres of terrestrial planets and their possible spectroscopic observation/characterization with present and future space observatories).
  • Heike Rauer: Institute for Planetary Research, Department of Extrasolar Planets and Atmospheres, DLR, Berlin, Germany: (is involved in the search and basic characterization of extrasolar planetary systems by photometric observations from space and ground and will support the project related to atmospheres by numerical modeling within the framework of the Helmholtz Allianz Project "Planetary Evolution and Life").
