LunGradCon provides an opportunity for grad students and early-career postdocs to present their research on lunar and small body science in a low-stress, friendly environment, being critiqued only by their peers.
July 20, 2015
With the expanded interests of the Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI), the scope of this year’s LunGradCon is expanded to include both lunar and small bodies science.
LunGradCon provides an opportunity for grad students and early-career postdocs to present their research on lunar and small body science in a low-stress, friendly environment, being critiqued only by their peers. In addition to oral presentations, the conference presents opportunities for professional development and networking with fellow grad students and postdocs, as well as senior members of SSERVI.

The world’s largest meeting of professional astronomers is coming to the Hawaii Convention Center in 2015. The International Astronomical Union (IAU) will hold its triennial General Assembly August 3-14, 2015, in Honolulu, on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, USA. A vote at this year’s General Assembly in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, selected Hawaii as the location of the 2015 meeting against very strong competition from two other sites.

The intention of the European Planetary Science Congress 2015 is to cover a broad area of science topics related to planetary science and planetary missions. The programme of the congress will contain oral and poster sessions, and it will emphasize workshops and panel discussions in order to have a strong interaction between the participants.
The Scientific Organizing Committee of the EPSC2015 invites all planetary scientists to participate in the congress, submit contributions to the topical sessions and share their research with colleagues and friends. We are looking forward to welcome you in Nantes, France!

The IAC is the one place and time of the year when all space actors come together. Global, multidisciplinary and covering all space sectors and topics, it offers everyone the latest space information, developments but above all contacts and potential partnerships. Each year, the IAC changes country, theme and local organizer, enabling all to learn more about, and be a part of the world space scene.
The IAC is the platform by which over 40 administrative and technical committees support the Federation in its mission to advance knowledge about space and to foster the development of space assets by facilitating global cooperation.
At its annual International Astronautical Congress (IAC) and other thematic conferences, the IAF brings its multidisciplinary and international network to life.

In preparation for missions to primitive asteroids and to better interpret recent remote sensing datasets from Mercury, the Moon, and other objects, we need a better understanding of how the space environment alters the surfaces of airless bodies from a remote sensing perspective, how analysis of returned samples provides ground truth for interpreting the spectral data, and how laboratory experiments provide quantitative constraints on the processes involved. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together scientists across a range of disciplines to discuss and exchange ideas about space weathering processes and their effects from their different perspectives. These discussions will allow us to assess the current state of knowledge and to identify the major gaps in our understanding of space weathering in preparation for new asteroid encounters and sample return missions.

The meeting promises exceptional science, with presentations of the initial results from the New Horizons visit to Pluto, and of MESSENGER’s final orbits around Mercury, as well as new results from ongoing missions at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, Ceres, Mars, and the Saturn system, ground-based observations, modeling efforts, and laboratory research. We look forward to hearing more about the finalists for the next Discovery competition, which will have been recently selected at the time of the meeting.
