Hayabusa 2014: Second Symposium of Solar System Materials December 4-5, 2014

We announce the second circular of Hayabusa 2014:

2nd Symposium of Solar System Materials” hosted by JAXA, as the one held in last Oct.

Now we start to call for abstract from 31 July to 30 September, 2014.

As detailed in the following, this symposium will cover a wide range of scientific fields related to asteroids, however, we will especially focus on spectroscopy of asteroids in this year.

From this year, we arrange a date of our symposium with that of Antarctic Meteorite session of Polar Science Symposium held in NIPR, Tokyo, Japan, to be held just after the session.

We prepare a travel grant for graduate students and postdoctors, so that young scientists are welcome to present their research works.
