The 3rd Ocean Worlds meeting will be held May 21–24, 2018, at the Lunar and Planetary Institute, Universities Space Research Association (USRA), 3600 Bay Area Blvd, Houston, Texas 77058.
In the next of a series of Ocean Worlds meetings, the focus will be on the potential for silicate-water interactions to occur on Ocean Worlds beyond Earth, from a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary perspective. As with past Ocean Worlds meetings, a primary motivation is to engender a cross-fertilization of ideas and expertise by soliciting contributions from both the Ocean Sciences and Planetary Sciences communities. Consequently, contributions are invited that address any aspects of this broad water-rock interaction theme, across the Planetary and Ocean Science fields, including geophysics, hydrogeology, geochemistry and microbiology.
Abstract Deadline — Wednesday, March 7, 2018, 5:00 p.m. U.S. Central Daylight Saving Time (GMT -5).
A limited number of travel awards for students and early career scientists may be available. Those who demonstrate a need will be considered for assistance.
