Historical abstracts for the 50th Division for Planetary Sciences (DPS) meeting taking place October 21-26 in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA, are due July 26 at 9:00 pm ET.

The 2018 DPS marks the 50th anniversary of this meeting. This jubilee milestone will be celebrated at the meeting with an historical plenary session, including invited speakers and a panel, as well as a historical session on the Cassini mission. In addition, we welcome contributed abstracts that review and reflect on the last half-century of planetary science in the DPS. You are encouraged to submit your abstracts in the pertinent sections or under the topic “History.” Please note that history abstracts do not count against the limit of one regular research contributed abstract.
