LPSC 2023

The 54th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC) will be held as a hybrid conference on March 13–17, 2023. We are very excited to gather once again in person. Our highest priority for the conference remains the sharing of planetary science knowledge and information in a safe environment for our participants. With ongoing concerns about COVID-19, remaining in The Woodlands for 2023 allows us to continue to keep you safe. Watch for more details in the coming weeks and months as we share important information about the conference format and scientific program. Mark your calendars and join us for the 54th LPSC!

About LPSC

About LPSC

Since its beginning in 1970, when it was called the Apollo 11 Lunar Science Conference, the conference has been a significant focal point for lunar and planetary science research. Over the years, it has grown tremendously, with over 2,000 planetary scientists and students who present their findings that provide new insights and a better understanding of the solar system.

LPSC features oral and poster presentations organized by topical symposia and problem-oriented sessions based on abstracts. Over 2,000 abstracts are submitted from a global scientific community. These abstracts are peer-reviewed, and selections for presentation are based on the overall relevance to the conference and the quality of the science. Special sessions and other events are scheduled throughout the week of the conference.


LPSC is a joint effort between the Lunar and Planetary Institute and NASA.
