European Lunar Symposium – Call for Abstracts

The 5th European Lunar Symposium will take place at the University of Munster, Germany on May 2-3, 2017 (pre-registration on the evening of Mon, 1st May, 2017). There are other related events being planned on either side of ELS (Mon, 1st May – ESA Exploration Day; Thu, 4th May and Fri 5th May – New Views of the Moon 2 workshop) so you may wish to keep the ELS week of 1st May 2017 free in your diary!

The format will be similar to previous European Lunar Symposiums and 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”.
