About the Europlanet Science Congress (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.
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.
