The sixth annual Lunar and Small Bodies Graduate Conference (LunGradCon 2015) will be held at NASA Ames on Monday, July 20, 2015.
LunGradCon will address the following research topics of the NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute:
- Dust/Regolith and Plasma
- Geology and Geophysics
- Missions and Human Exploration
LunGradCon will also present opportunities for social networking among LGC participants and senior scientists and engineers from NASA ARC and the NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute.
Abstracts are now being accepted electronically for talks at LunGradCon 2015. All presentations will be oral, 15 minutes in length. Abstract deadline is Friday, June 5.
Preceding LunGradCon, the RIS4E node of NASA's Solar System Exploration Virtual Institute (SSERVI) is sponsoring a communicating science workshop to be held at NASA Ames on July 19, just before the NASA Exploration Science Forum and LunGradCon. Participation is limited to 35 individuals. They are seeking both experienced and junior scientists to participate. Note that the registration forum has a field for SSERVI team, but you do NOT need to be on a SSERVI team to participate. See http://www.centerforcommunicatingscience.org/sservi-science-communication-workshop for more details.
