THANK YOU to the following organizations for their support of the Visions 2050 Workshop.





February 28-March 1, 2017
Planetary Science Vision 2050 Workshop

Planetary Science Vision 2050 Workshop

Workshop Format and Themes

The workshop program includes six half-day sessions with no parallel sessions. There will be two poster sessions, one each on Monday and Tuesday evening. The half-day sessions include a series of oral presentations and a panel discussion.

Oral sessions and panel discussions will be livestreamed so that community members unable to attend the workshop can participate. PDFs of poster presentations will be posted on the workshop website.

There are five basic themes of the workshop that form the basis of each of the half-day sessions. These take the current planetary science goals articulated below and develop a vision of where they might go in the coming three decades, and the technologies needed to achieve these goals:

In addition, there will be discussion, both within the individual themes and in a panel on FUTURE TECHNOLOGIES about the technologies that need to be developed and the timescales for development for the achievement of the Vision.
