Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC)

Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC)

In light of the COVID-19 situation, EPSC 2020, originally planned for Granada, will be held as a virtual meeting.

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. We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy during these trying times, and look forward to meeting again in person.

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

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.

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.
