Call for Abstracts

Virtual Session 14: Heliophysics Applications Enabling and Enabled by Human Exploration of the Lunar Surface

Deadline for abstracts extended — January 18, 2022, 5:00 p.m. U.S. Central Standard Time (GMT -6)

Input is solicited from the Heliophysics community in the form of short abstracts (<1,200 characters) for both poster and oral presentations on topics related to addressing aspects of Heliophysics science that enable or are enabled by human presence on the lunar surface. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • How can HERMES and other measurements from Gateway support lunar surface operations, for example, by determining the radiation environment on the surface of the Moon?
  • What are the electrodynamic conditions on the lunar surface and their relationship to exploration hazards such as dust and electrostatic discharge?
  • How can solar, magnetospheric, and other imaging techniques help predict conditions on the Moon that may affect human exploration?
  • How does our understanding of electrodynamic processes in and near magnetic anomalies inform and guide human activities on the lunar surface?


Preparation and Submission of Abstracts and Discussion Topics

  • No late submissions will be accepted.
  • Abstracts sent by email will not be considered.
  • Abstracts are limited to 1,200 characters. Enter abstract text (ASCII characters only) into the abstract submission form’s summary field.
  • Submit your contribution by filling out the electronic abstract submission form.


Abstract Revisions (prior to the deadline): If you need to revise your submission, return to the abstract submission portion of the meeting portal and click on the “Update” link that appears next to the title of your submission.

Note: All electronic submission forms are part of the Meeting Portal, which requires users to set up a personal profile to access our electronic forms (setting up a profile is quick and easy, requiring only a few minutes of your time).
