You are invited to attend a two-day pan-European lunar meeting to be held in Berlin on 19th and 20th April 2012. This meeting will be held under the umbrella of the NASA Lunar Science Institute’s European nodes.
A global surge in lunar exploration has put lunar science and exploration back into limelight once again. Some of the possible interests in the exploration of the Moon include astronomical, astrophysical, geological, commercial, resource utilization, and strategic considerations, as well as its use as an outpost for future human exploration of the Solar System. One of the main aims of this meeting is to bring together the European scientific community interested in various aspects of lunar exploration. In addition, lunar experts from countries engaged in launching lunar missions are also invited to attend this meeting.
At this stage, we are inviting the lunar community to submit an abstract for an oral or a poster presentation.
We are limited to 170 participants and will adopt a first come first serve policy so please register for the meeting at your earliest convenience and submit an abstract by clicking on the tab Propose a presentation. (Note that you will need to create an account on this website to submit an abstract. This is separate from and in addition to the event registration.) The meeting will include both oral and poster sessions. A number of bursaries will be made available to those who do not have access to any travel funds but are able to make a contribution to the meeting.
We look forward to seeing you at the ELS in April 2012.
Mahesh Anand and Ralf Jaumann
