UnivEarthS supports the next “International Titan Surface Meeting 2016”

International Titant Surface Meeting 2016

Each year, as part of the international Cassini-Huygens space mission, an international workshop is organized about the progress on the knowledge of the surface of Saturn’s largest satellite, Titan.

For the first time since the beginning of the mission in 2004, and less than a year before the end of this one in September 2017, the organization of this workshop was entrusted to French researchers. It is with great honor and pride that the University Paris Diderot Paris 7 will host on its site beginning November 2016 the next “International Meeting Titan surface.”

Sebastian Rodriguez and Antoine Lucas, member of Interface Group “From dust to planets“, received the support of UnivEarthS for organizing this meeting.

This workshop will bring together around 70 researchers around the world (France, USA, Italy). Scientists will discuss the latest findings on the origin, geology and climatology of this moon so special like no other, in light of 12 years of painstaking observations. In collaboration with the French space agency (CNES), European (ESA) and the US (NASA), a round table on the future of satellite exploration missions will close the workshop.

This event will take place on 2, 3 and 4 November 2016 in the building of the Hall of flour in the thesis room. The presentations will not be open to the public.
