Just a reminder that the 16th meeting of the Small Bodies Assessment Group will be held Jan. 11-13 in Tucson. The deadline for hotel reservations at the group rate is one week off (Dec. 22). Links for registration and for hotel rooms can be found at
The agenda for the meeting has not been finalized, but will include updates from the NASA Planetary Science Division (including an update on Research and Analysis funding) and Planetary Defense Coordination Office, updates on small bodies missions, a discussion of possible small bodies collaborations with astrophysics-oriented missions, and several other topics of interest.
I hope to see you there.
