The abstract submission deadline for the Ice in the Solar System Workshop has been extended to Wednesday, November 23rd, 23:59 CET, to accommodate the exceptional interest of the community for this event.
This workshop will focus on experimental and mission data relevant for the past and future exploration of volatile rich bodies in the Solar System.The pre-registration has shown a strong interest in this topic with over one hundred participants expected. The topics covered by this workshop will include: Experimental research and associated modeling (preparation of ice analogs and experimental weathering in the lab, analysis and modeling techniques to infer optical, thermal, mechanical, electrical, thermodynamical, structural and compositional properties.
Mission data revealing ices and their properties, composition, geological context and history in the Outer Solar System (Rings, icy moons, KBOs and Kuiper Belt), Asteroid Belt, Mars (polar caps, ground ice) or well within the snow line (Mercury, Moon). The astrobiological potential of ices and their role and transport during the Solar System evolution- including the connection to the interstellar medium, proto-solar nebulae, icy giants and planetesimals formation.
