Members of the Mars community,

I cordially invite you to participate in the next virtual meeting (VM7) of the Mars Exploration Program Analysis Group (MEPAG), scheduled on Wednesday, November 13th, 2019, at 3:00 pm-5:00 pm EDT.

Agenda items are expected to include updates about recent MEPAG activities, including Decadal Survey preparations, and the recent Planetary Advisory Committee (PAC) meeting. We also expect to hear reports about a recent Mars conference in China by Prof. Jim Head (Brown University), the Mars Extant Life conference, the recent NASA Planetary Protection Independent Review Board (PPIRB), and the newly-formed MEP-chartered Mars Architecture Strategy Working Group (MASWG).  The VM7 agenda will be shared within a few weeks on the MEPAG meeting website (http://mepag.nasa.gov/meetings.cfm).

WebEx connectivity information can be found in the MEPAG VM7 1st Information Circular. This meeting is open to all members of the Mars science community including our international colleagues, and I look forward to your participation.
