May 18 – May 19

The 4th European Lunar Symposium will take place at the Trippenhuis (Dutch Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences), Amsterdam, The Netherlands on Wed, 18th May and Thu, 19th May, 2016 (pre-registration on the evening of Tue 17th May, 2016).

A global surge in lunar exploration has thrust lunar science and exploration back into the limelight once again. Current interests in the exploration of the Moon range from astronomical, astrophysical, geological, commercial, resource utilization, and strategic considerations, to its use as an outpost for future human exploration of the Solar System. One of the main aims of this meeting is to bring together the European scientific community interested in various
aspects of lunar exploration. In addition, lunar experts from countries engaged in launching lunar missions are also invited to attend this meeting.

The format will consist of both oral and poster presentations divided into four broad themes of: “Science of the Moon”, “Science on the Moon”, “Science from the Moon” and “Future Lunar Missions”.

Further information relating to abstract submission, registration etc. will be made available via the meeting website which is located at: http://sservi.nasa.gov/els2016/
