VI Meeting of Planetary Science and Solar System Exploration
The CPESS 6th ("Ciencias Planetarias y Exploración del Sistema Solar", by its Spanish acronym) meeting will be held at “Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aeroespacial” (INTA) campus, located at Torrejón de Ardoz, on May 27th, 28th and 29th, 2019.
As in previous events, the goal of the meeting is to show the scientific and technological activities that are being performed in the field of planetary science, from the bodies of our own solar system to exoplanets. In this last issue, the interest is particularly focused on those works related to the study of the planet itself. The space instrumentation developed for this purpose will be also addressed.
Portuguese planetary society is nicely invited to participate in this meeting, with the aim to share the last cutting-edge scientific and technological insights in this scope, as well as to define future possible collaborations.
The scientific committee and the local organization want to encourage also to the amateur researchers to participate. The international nature and the interesting contributions coming from this community will strongly enrich the program, increasing not only the accessibility but the visual impact of the meeting.
The different areas that will be covered are shown in detail in the program, while the logistic information can be found at the poster of the event.
