The European Planetary Science Congress (EPSC) is the major European meeting on planetary science. Since the first event in Berlin in 2006, EPSC has been the main dissemination platform for the European planetary science community.  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.

The Europlanet Society is the parent organisation of EPSC. The EPSC Executive Committee is responsible for the overall management of the meeting; the Scientific Organising Committee is responsible for the scientific content and the Local Organising Committee is responsible for the local flavour of the meeting.
