The Ireland and UK Hub of the Europlanet Society are conducting their first regional meeting on Friday 27 March 2020 at the Royal Astronomical Society in London. Regional Hubs are a means of promoting and disseminating planetary science research, and related activities, as part of the Europlanet Society's aims.

We invite researchers from the Ireland and UK planetary science community to take part in this meeting. We would like the event to encompass the full range of planetary science research within the Ireland-UK communities, as well as showcasing the development of planetary science infrastructures and facilities. The programme will consist of oral 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.

We have five featured invited speakers who will describe their own research and / or the activities of the Europlanet Society:

  • Anita Heward (Europlanet Society) 
  • Steve Miller (UCL emeritus)
  • Emma Woodfield (BAS) 
  • Lauren McKeown (Trinity College Dublin) 
  • Angelos Tsiaras (UCL)

Further details about the meeting will appear here in due course.

All planetary scientists, regardless of whether you can attend the meeting or not, are encouraged to respond to our survey by using the link on our Hub page - your input is valuable for helping us focus our Hub efforts over the next few years, and for making the Europlanet Society a valuable forum for its members.

To submit an abstract for the meeting, please email the following information to nicholas.achilleos at ucl.ac.uk:
