July 1-2, 2020 LunGradCon 2020, Virtual
The 10th Annual Lunar and Small Bodies Graduate Conference (LunGradCon 2020) is to be held virtually on Wednesday and Thursday, July 1-2, 2020, preceding the NASA Exploration Science Forum (ESF, July 8-10). With the expanded interests of the Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI), the scope of LunGradCon includes both lunar and small body science. LunGradCon provides an opportunity for grad students and early-career postdocs to present their research on lunar and small body science in a low-stress, friendly environment, being critiqued only by their peers. In addition to virtual presentations, the conference will feature Q&A panels with various groups to help grad students navigate the paths to careers in space science. The deadline for LunGradCon registration and abstract submission is June 19, 2019, 11:59 PM PDT. For more details, please visit: or email any questions to:
