Lunar science and exploration are having a renaissance with as many as ten missions sent to Moon during the last one decade itself. This session is aimed at discussing new progress in lunar science from recent missions, latest science results, newer insight into our understanding of Moon, modeling and synthesis of different scientific data, future missions, and science questions. It will include invited, contributed, and poster papers. Papers on new lunar mission concepts, instrumentation for the future lunar missions, and human lunar exploration are also welcome in this session.
