Meeting Location and Dates

We are happy to announce the Lunar Polar Volatiles Conference which is scheduled for November 2–4, 2022, at the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) in Houston, Texas, with virtual participation available.

Purpose and Scope

The conference will focus on discussions on the current state of knowledge of volatiles in the lunar polar regions and outstanding questions to be addressed by missions anticipated in the next several years. We will solicit presentations to illuminate the present-day inventory, spatial distribution of lunar polar volatiles, and processes affecting their history of accumulation, modification, and erosion inside permanently shadowed regions. Testable predictions and comparative analyses among cold-trapped volatiles on the Moon, Ceres, and Mercury are particularly encouraged. Presentations on upcoming missions or mission concepts related to polar volatiles are also welcome.
