Workshop Location and Dates
We are happy to announce the Europa Deep Dive 2: Chemical Composition of Europa and State of Laboratory Data workshop (#DeepDive2) scheduled for October 9–11, 2018 at the Lunar and Planetary Institute, 3600 Bay Area Blvd., Houston, Texas.
Purpose and Scope
The focus of the Europa Deep Dive 2: Composition workshop is to assess existing laboratory data and identify gaps where laboratory work is still needed; assess existing data on the Europa surface and exosphere; plan how to realize the needs for new data; encourage dialogue among laboratory, observational, and data-analysis communities; and foster collaborations among complementary laboratories.
The workshop will be highly interactive, and all attendees will be expected to participate in moderated discussion sessions. This will be the second in a series of workshops, each of which is designed to thoroughly examine one aspect of Europa’s geology, ocean, interior, ice shell, composition, space environment, or astrobiological potential. The workshops will bring together communities that may not routinely interact, with the aim of actively encouraging interdisciplinary discussion and input from all attendees.
