Workshop Location and Dates

The Workshop on In Situ Exploration of the Giant Planets II is scheduled for July 12–14, 2022, at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Building 201, 11101 Johns Hopkins Road, Laurel, Maryland, 20723.

In-person attendance at the workshop will be limited to one hundred people, and all attendees must provide proof of vaccination to attend and wear a mask.

Purpose and Scope

The Workshop on In Situ Exploration of the Giant Planets II will build upon discussions from the 2019 Marseille Workshop for In Situ Exploration of the Ice Giants. The workshop will extend discussions to all the giant planets and strategize on paths forward for future giant planet entry probe missions.

Appropriate workshop topics include science, technologies, and mission concepts relevant to future in situ explorations of giant planet atmospheres and entry probes as an element of future giant planet missions. In particular, the link between the formation conditions of the giant planets and atmospheric composition, measurement techniques, instrumentation, technologies, and future mission concepts in the framework of international collaborations are of high interest.

The three-day in-person workshop will comprise themed sessions and will feature a mixture of invited and contributed talks, posters, and panel discussions. This meeting will be in person, but the opportunity for virtual participation is planned. The organizers are monitoring the current COVID situation, and the workshop format, including virtual participation, will be adjusted as necessary.
