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 2020, originally planned for Granada, will be held as a virtual meeting.

EPSC2020 is the first 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. EPSC2020 is an opportunity for us to be creative in developing innovative and supplementary ways for our community to interact.

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

  • EPSC 2021 will be held at Finlandia Hall, Helsinki, Finland, from 19-24 September 2021.
  • EPSC 2022 will take place at the Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos de Granada, Spain from 18-23 September 2022

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. We are looking into the possibility of converting the 2023 DPS meeting in San Antonio into a joint meeting with EPSC.
