The abstract deadline for the Mercury 2018 Meeting: Current and Future Science of the Innermost Planet is a few weeks away, on February 15, 2018. This meeting will focus on all scientific aspects of the planet Mercury, including both the current state of knowledge and the
prospects for future endeavors. All scientific topics related to the planet Mercury are welcome at this meeting.
In particular, we wanted to specifically note that contributions related to the future exploration of Mercury beyond BepiColombo are also sought. This meeting seeks to enable the Mercury science community to have productive discussions, building on MESSENGER’s results and
preparing for BepiColombo’s new discoveries, while also considering what are the top priorities for the next steps in the scientific exploration of Mercury. Thus, abstracts on the speculative future scientific exploration of Mercury are encouraged, and authors are allowed more than one first-authored abstract to encourage such submissions.
