Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce an International Venus Science Conference to be held in Oxford, U.K., on 4-8 April 2016.

The conference invites presentations on all aspects of Venus science, from the interior to the exosphere. Comparative planetology talks (highlighting parallels with other planets in our solar system or with exoplanets), and presentations related to future missions or investigations, are welcome. The programme will comprise invited and contributed talks, as well as posters. The abstract deadline will be 22 Jan 2016.

Financial support for students is available; the deadline for application is also 22 Jan 2016.

Further information about abstract submission and all other details are available at the conference website:
