EPSC2021 – First Announcement and Call for Sessions

The Europlanet Science Congress 2021 (EPSC2021) will take place from 13–24 September 2021 as a virtual conference.

The Europlanet Science Congress is the annual meeting event of the Europlanet Society. With a track record of 15 years and regularly attracting over one thousand participants, the Europlanet Science Congress is the largest planetary science meeting in Europe. The entire range of planetary sciences is covered through an extensive mix of talks, workshops and poster sessions and the event is a unique space for networking and exchange of experiences. 

The success of our meeting is founded on the excellence of the scientific sessions and as well as the session conveners. We therefore encourage you to submit session proposals through the conference website by 6 April 2021 at https://www.epsc2021.eu

Session can be proposed for the following programme groups:

  • TP – Terrestrial Planets
  • OPS – Outer Planet Systems
  • MITM – Missions, Instrumentation, Techniques, Modelling
  • SB – Small Bodies (comets, KBOs, rings, asteroids, meteorites, dust)
  • EXO – Exoplanets and Origins of Planetary Systems
  • ODAA – Outreach, Diversity, Amateur Astronomy

Similar to last year, the EPSC2021 will have a hybrid format with live and asynchronous content. The lessons learned from the previous event will be taken into account with more opportunities for live discussion and interaction, and the use of more user-friendly platforms. 

In this virtual format, active conveners are more important than ever in facilitating discussions and encouraging participants to interact with the scientific presentations and authors in their sessions. We will support conveners in their role by giving clearly defined guidelines, tools, tutorials and training.
