Workshop on In Situ Exploration of the Giant Planets II
July 12–14, 2022

We are pleased to announce the Workshop on In Situ Exploration of the Giant Planets II, July 12–14, 2022 at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland. The workshop is currently scheduled to be in person, with a virtual component being considered.

The Workshop on In Situ Exploration of the Giant Planets II will build upon the results of the Workshop for In Situ Exploration of the Ice Giants held in Marseille in February 2019 addressing in situ exploration of the ice giants. The focus of the workshop will 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. Topics especially relevant for the workshop include 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.

The three-day in-person workshop will comprise themed sessions on in situ exploration of giant planet atmospheres, technologies, and mission concepts and will feature a mixture of invited and contributed talks, posters, and panel discussions. Registration will be limited to 100 in-person attendees, with pre-registration required. No onsite registration will be available. Although the current meeting is planned to be in person, a virtual component to the workshop is being considered. The organizers are monitoring the current COVID-19 situation and will adjust the format of the workshop as necessary.

As of October 16, 2021, all staff members and visitors to Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory must follow the safety protocols before being granted access to the main campus and other APL facilities.
