The Cassini Rings Working Group will host a Planetary Rings Workshop, 13-15 August 2014 in Boulder, CO at the CU's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (CU-LASP). The workshop will be open to all interested parties and any observational or theoretical research on the properties, dynamics, origin or evolution of any planetary ring system is appropriate. This meeting will highlight the latest Cassini results. We plan on predominantly oral talks, but posters will be considered. Ample time will be allowed for discussion. Previous workshops were held in Ithaca (2011), Paris (2008) and Whitefish, MT (2006). The first announcement is posted at LASP's event website . Registration will be by credit card through Eventbrite. Details will follow in a 2nd announcement and will be posted on the above meeting site.
