Habitable Worlds across time and Space – STScI

Within a matter of years, humanity will know for the first time the frequency of terrestrial planets in orbit around other stars. This knowledge will pave the way for joining research from astronomy, Earth science, and biology to understand the past, present, and future of the Earth within its larger context as one of many habitable worlds throughout the Galaxy. Such work seeks to understand the formation and fate of the Earth as well as predict where and when different bodies will be suitable for both simple and complex forms of life.

In this four day symposium, scientists from diverse fields will discuss the formation and long-term evolution of terrestrial bodies throughout the various phases of stellar and Galactic evolution. A particular focus will be in how the specific conditions and challenges for habitability on Earth extend to other bodies in the Solar System and beyond. This symposium will include discussion about sites for Galactic habitability that have not yet been given much attention. The existence of these overlooked environments may provide motivation for novel astronomical observations with existing and next generation ground and space-based observatories.

Space permitting, Spring Symposium talks are open to faculty and staff from all local (Maryland and Washington, DC) institutions without registering. Seating is not guaranteed without registration. Please note, name badges are required for participation in morning and afternoon breaks as well as for Poster Break/Reception scheduled for April 28, 2014. Unregistered attendees are asked to refrain from sampling refreshments.

Asteroids, Comets, Meteors – ACM 2014

Asteroids, Comets, Meteors focuses on the research of small Solar System bodies. Small bodies are the key to understanding the formation and evolution of the Solar System, carrying signals from pre-solar times. Understanding the evolution of the Solar System helps unveil the evolution of extrasolar planetary systems. Societally, small bodies will be important future resources of minerals. The near-Earth population of small bodies continues to pose an impact hazard, whether it be small pieces of falling meteorites or larger asteroids or cometary nuclei capable of causing global environmental effects.

The conference series entitled “Asteroids, Comets, Meteors” constitutes the leading international series in the field of small Solar System bodies. The first three conferences took place in Uppsala, Sweden in 1983, 1985, and 1989. The conference is now returning to Nordic countries after a quarter of a century. After the Uppsala conferences, the conference has taken place in Flagstaff, Arizona, U.S.A. in 1991, Belgirate, Italy in 1993, Paris, France in 1996, Ithaca, New York, U.S.A. in 1999, in Berlin, Germany in 2002, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2005, in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A. in 2008, and in Niigata, Japan in 2012. ACM in Helsinki, Finland in 2014 will be the 12th conference in the series.

IAU-Symposium: Complex Planetary Systems

All the planetary systems, from the Earth-Moon system to the extrasolar ones, are complex systems, requiring several levels of expertise and of interdisciplinarity to be clearly understood. The symposium aims to bring forward the latest findings obtained in that perspective and to generate new collaborations for the future. Any astronomer involved in planetary systems, at any level, is invited to participate to the meeting and to propose its own expertise in future complex challenges.

The Eighth International Conference on Mars

As of 2014, we will have completed a remarkable and unparalleled 15 years of concentrated scientific exploration of the Red Planet. This period includes eight successful missions (1996 Mars Global Surveyor, 1996 Mars Pathfinder, 2001 Mars Odyssey, 2003 Mars Exploration Rovers, 2003 Mars Express, 2005 Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, 2007 Mars Phoenix, and 2011 Mars Science Laboratory), as well as telescopic observations from Earth, studies of martian meteorites, and a variety of numerical and laboratory modeling activities. Two additional missions will be en route to Mars at the time of the conference (NASA’s 2013 MAVEN and ISRO’s 2013 Mars Orbiter Mission), and several other missions are actively under development for launch during the period 2016–2020. The Eighth International Mars Conference will be an ideal time to step back and summarize our current understanding of Mars, to consolidate our primary paradigms for martian processes and history, and to refocus the primary scientific questions that remain in front of us.

The 40th COSPAR Scientific Assembly

The 40th COSPAR Scientific Assembly will be held from 2–10 August 2014, in Moscow, to be organized by Lomonosov Moscow State University, one of the leaders in Russian educational system and the country’s oldest university.

Currently one of the most prominent scientific meetings in the world, COSPAR Scientific Assemblies were conceived to promote research in astrophysics, astronomy, space science, space biology and medicine, through free and impartial exchange of information and open discussions. Its contribution to international cooperation can hardly be overestimated, as well as its role for further enhancement of space education.

Moscow, the capital of Russian Federation, will be the host city for the 40th Scientific Assembly. Being, on one hand, one of the world global cities, it also treasures rich historic and cultural heritage, whose past goes back for more than 8 centuries. The spirit of the past as well as signs and conveniences of modern city make Moscow one of the most attractive place for visitors, especially in August, the most mild period of the year in the region. More than 60 museums, 100 theatres, and 700 Russian orthodox churches in the city, and even more are in its nearest suburbs, are the reasons why stay in Moscow is never boring.

We cordially invite everyone engaged in space research and exploration to participate in the 40th COSPAR Scientific Assembly and visit Moscow in summer 2014!

The 65th International Astronautical Congress 2014, the world’s premier space event, will take place in Toronto, Canada from September 29 to October 3, 2014 at the award-winning Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The Congress theme “Our World Needs Space” will promote an exploration of the relationship between Earth and space and the ways that space activities help to meet our needs on Earth.

The Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI) is proud to host IAC 2014. CASI has had the priviledge of hosting two previous IACs, both to great acclaim: IAC 1991 in Montreal, and more recently IAC 2004 in Vancouver.

This unique global international collaborative platform brings together experts active in industry, government and academia, as well as many retirees and amateurs of space. IAC 2014 will provide an excellent opportunity for participants from around the world to network and present their latest accomplishments and future plans, identify opportunities for collaboration, and share their opinions on the widest possible array of topics.

IAC 2014 Chair Ron Holdway looks forward to welcoming YOU to Toronto for IAC 2014!
