4MS3 (4th Moscow Solar System Symposium) – Week of October 14-18, 2013, Moscow, Russia

4th workshop “Planet Mars“, les Houches (France), week of 20-25 October 2013. http://www.sciops.esa.int/mars4
The goals of the workshop are to integrate the main results of both the recent Earth-based observations and the missions to Mars into a new global picture of Mars evolution.  A specific session will be devoted to comparative analyses of Mars, Venus, the Earth and Titan in all their aspects (internal structure; atmospheric composition and photochemistry; climatology; this session will take advantage of recent results acquired, in particular, by the Venus Express and Cassini missions, as well as recent developments on global climate models of Venus and Titan.

48TH ESLAB Symposium: New Insights Into Volcanism Across The Solar System, Week of 16-21 June 2014, ESTEC, Noordwijk, Netherlands, Contact: Sebatian Besse, sbesse@rssd.esa.int The aim of the 2014 ESLAB symposium is to review the different mechanisms, sources and surface expressions of volcanism, both effusive and explosive. Special, but not exclusive, emphasis will be put on moons and Mercury, target bodies of future ESA missions (BepiColombo to Mercury and the Jupiter icy moon explorer mission, JUICE). Other themes of the symposium will focus on the understanding of the role and impact of volcanism in the early history of terrestrial planets (including planet Earth) and possible processes on Mars (studied by ESA’s ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter). By bringing all this information together under this theme, we will be able to improve our current understanding of the formation and evolution of our Solar System.
