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.
