Meeting Location and Date
The 2016 Annual Meeting of the Lunar Exploration Analysis Group (LEAG 2016) will be held November 1–3, 2016 at the Universities Space Research Association Headquarters at 7178 Columbia Gateway Dr., Columbia, Maryland.
Purpose and Scope
The 2016 LEAG annual meeting will bring together scientists, engineers, industry/private sector, and government personnel to explore and develop lunar exploration strategies that benefit all constituencies that LEAG represents, and promote solar system exploration through the use of lunar resources.
The meeting goals are three-fold:
- Integrate the perspectives and interests of the different stakeholders (science, engineering, government, and private sector) to explore common goals of lunar exploration.
- Use the results of recent and ongoing missions to examine how science enables exploration and exploration enables science.
- Provide a forum for community updates and input into the issues that affect lunar science and exploration.
The meeting will result in a series of findings formulated through community consensus that will be published on the LEAG website and forwarded to NASA HQ (SMD and HEOMD). Time for discussion and community input will be made available during each session.
