Event: Space Resources Roundtable: Planetary & Terrestrial Mining Sciences Symposium (PTMSS)
June 11-14, 2019
Location: Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colorado

Description: The Space Resources Roundtable (celebrating its 20th anniversary this year!) brings together space professionals, natural resources industry personnel, financial and legal experts, policy analysts, and entrepreneurs interested in developing the resources of space, including the Moon, Mars, asteroids, comets, and other bodies of the Solar System. The goal of the Space Resources Roundtable is to advance prospects for the development of space resources through information exchange among government, industry, and academia from around the world. The purpose of the Planetary & Terrestrial Mining Sciences Symposium is to promote a closer relationship between the space and mining sectors. The intent is to allow mining experts to network with space scientists and engineers, to share knowledge, and to foster collaboration.

Event: Pluto System After New Horizons
Date: July 14-18, 2019
Location: John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Maryland

Description: An international science conference on the Pluto system and the Kuiper Belt. The conference will provide an opportunity to summarize our understanding of the Pluto system and the Kuiper belt following the New Horizons encounters with Pluto and 2014 MU69 (Ultima Thule). Contributions spanning all relevant research on the Kuiper belt, including both observations and theory, are being solicited. The conference will also serve as the nucleus for a forthcoming volume, The Pluto System After New Horizons, in the University of Arizona Space Science Series. With a projected 2020 publication date, this new book will be the successor to Pluto-Charon, published in 1997.


Event: 2020 Space Weather Workshop
April 20-24, 2020
Location: Embassy Suites/Hilton Garden Inn, Boulder, Colorado

Description: Space Weather Workshop is an annual conference that brings industry, academia, and government agencies together in a lively dialog about space weather. What began in 1996 as a conference for the space weather user community, Space Weather Workshop has evolved into the Nation’s leading conference on all issues relating to space weather. The conference addresses the remarkably diverse impacts of space weather on today’s technology. The program highlights space weather impacts in several areas, including communications, navigation, spacecraft operations, aviation, and electric power. The workshop will also focus on the highest priority needs for operational services that can guide future research and new high-value capabilities that can be transitioned into operations. The conference fosters communication among researchers, space weather service providers, and users of space weather services.
