Dusty Visions 2016

Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) and the Institute for Modeling Plasma, Atmospheres and Cosmic Dust (IMPACT) will be hosting the Dusty Visions Workshop in Boulder, Colorado, USA at the LASP facilities. We plan on having a discussion heavy workshop on the current studies and future direction of cosmic dust research.

The meeting will take place on July 22-24, 2016. Registration and more information can be found here.

Dust, Atmospheres, and Plasma (DAP) 2017

The Dust, Atmosphere and Plasma environment of the Moon and Small Bodies (DAP-2017) workshop will be a forum to discuss our current understanding of the surface environment of the Moon, the moons of Mars: Phobos and Deimos, and asteroids, to share new results from past and ongoing missions, and to describe expectations for planned upcoming missions. The workshop will be focused on the open science questions, the status and future of our supporting modeling and laboratory experimental capabilities, the definition of the required measurements and instrument capabilities for future investigations from orbit, or to be deployed on the surface.

The meeting will take place on Jan. 11th - 13th, 2017. Registration and more information can be found here.

Open SUDA Meeting 2015
