New Deadline: 5th September 2016

The mini-symposium on asteroids will be organized during the Stardust Final Conference, to be held at the ESA-ESTEC (The Netherlands), 31st October – 4th November, 2016. The mini-symposium will take place over two days (31st Oct & 1st Nov), and will focus on small solar system objects, mainly asteroids. It will consist of two half-day sessions, aiming to review the state-of-the-art of the corresponding lines of research, as well as to present ongoing projects, and to discuss directions for the future developments.

As there have been major advances in asteroid science in the last decade, and that trend continues, we think it is an appropriate time for such a meeting. Moreover, we want to incorporate manuscripts reporting the results of new research from the field into a single
special journal issue, expecting that this will increase the impact and visibility of these papers. For these reasons we have made arrangements with the journal ICARUS for the publication of a special issue on asteroids, associated with the mini-symposium.
