Differentiation Conference: Abstract Deadline Extended to March 6

The abstract deadline for Differentiation: Building the Internal Architecture of Planets has been extended to Tuesday, March 6. The deadline for requesting early career travel support is also March 6.

The conference will be held may 8-11 in Pasadena, California, with a focus on understanding the physical and chemical conditions associated with the formation of crusts, cores, atmospheres, and oceans on both rocky and volatile-rich bodies. We seek input from many types of studies,
including petrologic, isotopic, trace element, and paleo-magnetic analyses of samples, geophysical probes of planetary interiors, and experimental and numerical simulations. Confirmed invited speakers include Steve Desch, Jasmeet Dhaliwal, Rebecca Fischer, Colin Jackson, Thomas Kruijer, Carol Raymond, Anat Shahar, Sonia Tikoo, and Bryan Travis. There will be an optional, pre-conference field trip to an anorthosite complex in the San Gabriel Mountains on May 7.

Abstracts are limited to ONE page and should be submitted via the conference website:

Travel support for early career individuals and should also be applied for via the conference website.
