Meeting Planning Services

We are happy to announce the 12th Planetary Crater Consortium (PCC) Meeting scheduled for August 11–13, 2021. The PCC Executive Council has closely watched developments of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the interest of community safety and venue restrictions, we decided to proceed with a virtual delivery of the meeting.

Purpose and Scope

The 12th 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 numerical modeling studies of impact craters on planets, dwarf planets, moons, asteroids, comets, or other small solar system objects.

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 during the presentation. Additional discussion time is set aside at the end of the morning and afternoon sessions. A primary goal of the meeting is to provide feedback on works-in-progress in a relaxed and friendly environment, discuss potential new avenues of collaborative crater research, and present new work and applications of impact crater studies and related topics.

This year, we also expect members to vote on a new PCC Charter and Chair.
