The DAP-2023 workshop will be hosted by the SSERVI-IMPACT team at the University of Colorado, and will be a forum to (i) discuss our current understanding of the surface environment of the Moon and other small bodies, (ii) share new results from past and ongoing missions to the moon, airless bodies and comets, and (iii) describe expectations, problems, and solutions for planned future missions to dusty destinations.
The meeting will take place on June 5th - 6th, 2023. More information can be found here.
LunGradCon is a graduate run and participated conference held in conjunction with NASA SSERVI's annual Exploration Science Forum, which will be held at the University of Maryland for 2023. More information on past LunGradCons can be found here for 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022.

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 took place on Jan. 11th - 13th, 2017. More information can be found here.
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 took place on July 22-24, 2016. More information can be found here.
This meeting was an 'open' team meeting, not just for PIs and CoIs, open to those who are intimately involved with the science being conducted by the SUrface Dust Analyzer and the Europa mission. The meeting was held at IMPACT on Dec. 21st, 2015. Presentations included discussions on the SUDA instrument design and testing, simulations, compositional mapping, the physics of dust, and dust analogs. More information can be found here.
