The CHaracterizing ExOPlanet Satellite (CHEOPS) will be dedicated to search for transits by means of ultrahigh precision photometry on bright stars already known to host planets. It is the first S-class mission from ESA. CHEOPS will have a nominal lifetime of 3.5 years, with launch-readiness targeted for 2018. The CHEOPS scientists meet from 21 until 23 June 2016 for the Science Workshop #4 in Geneva. The purpose of this fourth CHEOPS science workshop is to bring together the community interested in the mission, providing information about its current status and preparing its scientific exploitation. Details will be presented on the implementation of Guaranteed Time Observations and Guest Observations (20% open time). Participants are invited to propose contributed talks on all scientific aspects relevant to the mission, including synergies with other facilities. Ample time will be devoted to discussions. See the full program on the website of the University of Geneva.
