Bridging the Gap III: Abstract and Registration Now OPEN

The Bridging the Gap III:  Impact Cratering in Nature, Experiments and Modeling conference will take place at the University of Freiburg, Germany, on September 21–26, 2015.

Abstract Submission DEADLINE:  July 9, 2015

 We invite all researchers working in the field of impact cratering to participate in this conference, which continues the tradition of the successful Bridging the Gap I and Bridging the Gap II meetings in 2003 and 2007 respectively. As with the previous meetings, this conference is aimed at bringing together researchers from different fields, including “observationalists” (remote sensing, field geology, etc.), experimentalists, and modelers. The meeting will be open to all aspects of impact cratering, including cratering mechanics, planetary perspectives, environmental effects, impact probabilities, etc.
