Radar studies of near-earth asteroids, mapping of planet and lunar surfaces, chemical compositions of comets, asteroids, and planetary atmospheres, and origins of solar systems, are just some of the exciting topics currently being studied through the use of large single-dish telescopes. We encourage you to attend this workshop and present your ideas on how the large single-dish telescopes such as the GBT and Arecibo can best contribute to future research in these and other topics, including new and improved capabilities and instrumentation.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could indicate your interest in attending this workshop by sending an email to solarsystem@nrao.edu, along with details of a topic you’d like to speak about, if any. Attendance will be limited to roughly 30 people, and we aim to provide plenty of time for discussions. We expect the agenda to evolve as we hear from potential participants.
