The Executive Council of the Planetary Crater Consortium is watching the developments of the COVID-19 pandemic closely. We will make a decision by June 1, 2020 as to whether the 11th Planetary Crater Consortium meeting will be held as planned. We will still collect abstracts as a record of the meeting, so please submit your abstract by the May 21, 2020 deadline.

Meeting Location and Dates

We are pleased to announce the 11th Planetary Crater Consortium (PCC) meeting scheduled for August 5–7, 2020 at the Hawaiˋi Institute of Geophysics and Planetology on the University of Hawaiˋi Manoa campus in Honolulu, Hawaiˋi.

Purpose and Scope

The 11th PCC meeting is open to planetary and terrestrial scientists interested in any aspect of impact cratering on solar system bodies. We welcome abstracts related to observational, theoretical, experimental, and/or numerical modeling studies of impact craters on planets, dwarf planets, moons, asteroids, comets, or other small solar system objects. This year, we particularly encourage discussions on the use of topographic data for the analysis of craters on any planetary body.

The annual meeting is designed to encourage and provide adequate time for in-depth discussion of crater-related issues and research topics to enhance collaborations. Talks are typically allocated at least 30 minutes, with questions being asked during the presentation. Additional discussion time is set aside at the end of the morning and afternoon sessions. A major goal of the meeting is to provide feedback in a relaxed and friendly environment and discuss potential new avenues of collaborative crater research.

Note: All electronic submission forms are part of the Meeting Portal, which requires users to set up a personal profile to access our electronic forms (setting up a profile is quick and easy, requiring only a few minutes of your time).
