Meeting Location and Dates

We are happy to announce the Venera-D: Venus Cloud Habitability System Workshop scheduled for November 30–December 3, 2021. This workshop will be delivered as a hybrid meeting, with in-person attendance at the Space Research Institute (IKI) in Moscow, Russia, and virtually for a remote audience.

Purpose and Scope

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the formation and stability of Venus clouds over time and their role in potential habitability. This workshop will discuss what is understood about past and present habitability, the best measurements and methods needed to address these questions, and how future missions will contribute to understanding the cloud habitability system.

We welcome all abstracts with a focus on any one of these four topics: 1) cloud layer habitability, 2) inputs (interior, surface, exogenous) to and outputs from the cloud layer over time, 3) measurements and instruments necessary to investigate the Venus cloud region, and 4) open questions or any additional investigations pertaining to the habitability of Venus clouds.
