EPSC 2021
March 9, 2021

Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC)



The Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC) is the major European meeting on planetary science.

In light of the COVID-19 situation, EPSC 2021, originally planned for Helsinki, will be held as a virtual meeting.

EPSC2021 is the second time that EPSC has been held as a virtual meeting. We believe that virtual meetings are likely to play an increasingly important role in supporting our community, widening participation from under-represented groups and tackling the global challenge of climate change. Building on the success and learning lessons from our first virtual meeting in 2020, EPSC2021 will have a hybrid format of live sessions and asynchronous scientific presentations. The ethos for EPSC2021 is to create a simple, flexible, and inclusive virtual meeting that provides multiple opportunities for interaction, scientific discussion, and networking.

About EPSC

The Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC) is the major European meeting on planetary science. Originally known as the European Planetary Science Congress, the first EPSC was held in Berlin in 2006. EPSC is the main dissemination platform for the European planetary science community and is the annual meeting of the Europlanet Society.  EPSC meetings cover the entire scope of planetary sciences and have a distinctively interactive style, with an extensive mix of talks, workshops and posters, intended to provide a stimulating environment for the community to meet.

Future Meetings

To maintain contractual agreements, EPSC 2022 will be held in Granada, Spain. The 2022 DPS meeting in London, Ontario, Canada will no longer be a joint DPS-EPSC meeting but the 2023 DPS meeting in San Antonio will now be held jointly with EPSC.
