The next annual meeting of the Ireland and UK Hub of the Europlanet Society will be held online on Tuesday 22 June 2021.

This 2nd meeting aims to reflect the broad range of research and outreach activities within the Ireland-UK planetary science communities, as well as showcase the ongoing development of planetary science infrastructures and facilities. The format of the meeting will be a mixture of invited and solicited talks and poster presentations. We particularly encourage presentations from early career researchers 
and scientists who have disseminated their work via Europlanet networking workshops and/or research infrastructure. Prizes will be awarded for the best student and early career presentations.

 Details of this year's awardees.

Europlanet Society membership is not required for abstract submission or registration. However, only Hub members are eligible for the best student and early career presentation prizes. The input of all community members is valuable at this stage to ensure that the Ireland-UK Hub of the Europlanet Society grows into a valuable forum for all members.
