Abstract submission deadline: February 19, 2016

The focus of this session is planetary science data archives, archiving activities, and future plans. We invite contributed abstracts related to all aspects of planetary science data archiving
activities and concepts and will invite speakers from the major data archiving organizations from various space agencies to discuss their facilities and activities. It is of great importance and broad community interest to archive and make available to the public the data returned by planetary science exploration missions and related data from Earth-based observatories. The ultimate goal is to enable and facilitate combined scientific analyses using data covering long time-baselines and multiple observations for new phenomena and scientific objectives emerging in the future. This session provides a forum for researchers in planetary sciences to
discuss and understand the standards, approaches, current progress, and future plans and concepts for effective long-term planetary science data preservation.

Conveners: Jian-Yang Li (Planetary Science Institute, United States),
