Workshop on the Study of the Ice Giant Planets – FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

Ice giantsThe first announcement for the Workshop on the Study of the Ice Giant Planets is now available. Included in this announcement is the call for abstracts, registration form, and information regarding logistics.

This workshop is designed to review the current state of knowledge of the ice giant atmospheres, satellites, rings, magnetospheres, and interiors, identifying science priorities, and providing traceability to future missions. Topical discussions will be broad, with an eye toward big-picture questions, including exoplanet science and the need for supporting observations, laboratory work, and modeling. The expected outcomes of this workshop include raising awareness on the importance of ice giant planet system science and prioritizing the discipline-specific science goals. We envision the results of this workshop will guide future Decadal Survey, Cosmic Vision, and other mission studies.
