Binary Asteroids in the Solary System 5

Inclusion of events on the AAS Calendar is for viewer information only and does not imply endorsement by the American Astronomical Society.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together various ideas on the detection, characterization, formation, and implications of binary and multiple objects among the NEO, main-belt, Trojan, Centaur, TNO populations. We hope to include all of the many modes of observation, in all of the dynamical populations, as well as theory and numerical modeling of formation and evolution of these systems. We especially welcome the new topics of rings of small bodies, and heliocentric orbital pairs of asteroids and their implications.

The workshop is characterized by a relaxed atmosphere and free format, with almost as much time for discussion as for the presentations themselves.

The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 60. Registration and abstract submission are now open.
