Dusty Visions 2018: First Announcement

An international workshop on Dust Spectroscopy and Dust Astronomy to be held from May 30 to June 1, 2018ย in Madrid, Spain.


In a workshop style we want to discuss the present state and new venues in cosmic dust research. There are exciting new results from Cassini, Rosetta, New Horizons, Ikaros, Stardust, Spitzer, Herschel, STEREO and other space missions that stimulate new ideas and theories. Major topics of the workshop will include interstellar dust, circumplanetary dust including dusty rings and space debris, presolar and cometary dust, plumes, dust in interplanetary space, dusty plasmas, dust in extrasolar systems as well as laboratory measurements, instrumentation and space missions. In situ and observational results, theoretical models, and the outcome of laboratory experiments will be discussed and their implications for future space missions will be highlighted. Of special emphasis is cosmochemistry and compositional analysis of dust in view of the Cassini and Rosetta results and the upcoming Europa and Destiny+ mission.

Note: The workshop will be opened for registration after the second announcement.
