The fourth annual Lunar Graduate Conference (LunGradCon 2013) will be held virtually on July 10, 2013.
LunGradCon 2013 will address the three main research areas of the NASA Lunar Science Institute:
Of the Moon: Investigations of the nature and history of the Moon (including research on lunar samples) to learn about this specific object and thereby provide insights into the evolution of our solar system.
On the Moon: Investigations of the effects of the lunar environment on terrestrial life and the equipment that supports lunar inhabitants, and the effects of robotic and human presence on the lunar environment.
From the Moon: Use of the Moon as a platform for performing scientific investigations, including observations of the Earth and other celestial phenomena that are uniquely enabled by being on the lunar surface.
LunGradCon 2013 will also present opportunities for social networking among conference participants and senior scientists and engineers from NASA ARC and the NASA Lunar Science Institute. Registration for LunGradCon 2013 will be open until June 15, 2013.
