NASA SSERVI Exploration Science Forum Convenes in July
The Solar System Exploration Research Institute (SSERVI) is pleased to announce the 1st annual NASA Exploration Science Forum (ESF, formerly the Lunar Science Forum), to be held in person 21-23 July2014 at NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA. The forum will feature scientific discussions of exploration targets of interest, including the Moon, near-Earth asteroids, and the moons of Mars. Science sessions will focus on recent mission results and in-depth analyses of science and exploration studies. Dedicated side-conferences for graduate students and young professionals — a graduate-student conference and a gathering of Next Generation Lunar Scientists and Engineers (NGLSE) — will coincide with the ESF. Public engagement discussions will be interwoven among science topics as well. Additionally, a 1.5-day meeting discussing science and exploration in the Global Exploration Roadmap (GER) will immediately follow the ESF, and the scientific community is welcome to attend.
Abstracts will be accepted from 18 February through midnight PDT on 26 April 2014 at http://sservi.nasa.gov/NESF2014/.
The next announcement, in mid-February, will discuss Exploration Science Forum logistics and details on the GER meeting.
We look forward to another exciting meeting focusing on the intersection of science and exploration!
