Announcing New Dates!

Pluto System After New Horizons

July 14–18, 2019
Laurel, Maryland



The dates for the Pluto System After New Horizons (PSANH), an international science conference on the Pluto system and the Kuiper Belt, have shifted by two days to July 14–18, 2019 (Sunday through Thursday). The venue remains the same — the conference will be held at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland.

Please mark your calendars accordingly!

The conference will provide an opportunity to summarize our understanding of the Pluto system and the Kuiper belt following the New Horizons encounters with Pluto and 2014 MU69 (Ultima Thule). Contributions spanning all relevant research on the Kuiper belt, including both observations and theory, are being solicited.

The conference will also serve as the nucleus for a forthcoming volume, The Pluto System After New Horizons, in the University of Arizona Space Science Series. With a projected 2020 publication date, this new book will be the successor to Pluto-Charon, published in 1997.
