Title: Atmospheric retrievals in the era of next generation telescopes.

Abstract: With the recent launch of the NASA/ESA/CSA-JWST telescope and the upcoming ESA-Ariel, we are now entering a new era of exoplanet characterisation. These next-generation telescopes will revolutionise our understanding of exoplanet atmospheres, but the analysis of their observations will be very challenging.

In this presentation, state-of-the-art techniques, which were thoroughly tested to analyse exo-atmospheric data from HST and Spitzer, will be presented. We will also explore some of their limitations, as well as the challenges associated with their application to next-generation telescopes.
