February 12, 2018 – With recent results from the Pluto system, the Saturn system, Mercury, and nearly all points in between, NASA will hold a workshop to discuss and synthesize these results to improve our understanding of the role of carbon in the Solar System, how it evolves and how to recognize it.
The Carbon in the Solar System Workshop will include invited and contributed talks on observational, lab and modeling work related to carbon and carbonaceous species on Solar System bodies. The workshop will emphasize discussion in addition to talks and posters, to encourage cross-communication within the community.
The workshop will be limited to 100 for in-person attendance, but webcast capabilities will be used to allow remote participation. The workshop will be held April 25-27, 2018 in Lakewood, Colorado.
This workshop is planned to be the first of two workshops, with the second held at a later date to review and share work stemming from discussions at the first workshop.
Abstracts for the first workshop are currently being accepted and are due March 6.
