Pluto-KBO Conference in 2019

“Pluto After New Horizons” : July 15-19, 2019

We are planning an international science conference on the Pluto system and the Kuiper Belt to be held July 15-19, 2019 at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, MD, USA.

Please mark your calendars accordingly! This conference will provide an opportunity to summarize our understanding of the Pluto system and the Kuiper belt following the New Horizons encounters with Pluto and 2014 MU69. Contributions spanning all relevant research on the Kuiper belt, including both observations and theory, will be solicited. The conference will also serve as a nucleus for a forthcoming volume “Pluto After New Horizons” in the University of Arizona Space Science Series.  With a projected 2020 publication date, this new book will be the successor to “Pluto-Charon” published in 1997.

A registration website with further details will be set up next summer, approximately one year prior to the conference.

Again, please put this conference on your calendar and join us at the Kossiakoff Center at APL in mid-July 2019!

With best regards,

Hal Weaver (JHU-APL), Alan Stern (SwRI), Rick Binzel (MIT) (on behalf of the SOC)
