https://www.cps-jp.org/~dust/

VENUE:
Sagamihara Campus of JAXA
Institute of Space and Astronautical Science
3-1-1 Yoshinodai, Chuo-ku
Sagamihara 252-5210
JAPAN
The campus is located in Sagamihara city, not far from Hakone at the foot of Mt. Fuji, and easy to access sightseeing places such as Yokohama and Kamakura, an ancient capital city.

DATE:
Monday, August 13 – Friday, August 17, 2018

OBJECTIVES:
This series of Cosmic Dust meetings aims at finding a consensus among experts on the formation and evolution of cosmic dust: where it comes from and where it goes. The meeting is organized by dust freaks who are very enthusiastic not only to make the goal achievable but also to establish a dust community across every scientifically relevant discipline for the development of cosmic dust research. For this reason, the primary objective of the meeting is to bring together professionals who deal with cosmic dust as well as provide an opportunity for participants to develop interpersonal relationships and scientific interactions among themselves.

SCOPE:
All kinds of cosmic dust such as
• intergalactic dust
• circumnuclear dust
• interstellar dust
• protoplanetary disk dust
• debris disk dust
• cometary dust
• interplanetary dust
• circumplanetary dust
• stellar nebular condensates
• presolar grains
• micrometeorites
• meteoroids
• meteors
• regolith particles
• planetary aerosols
are the subject of discussion. The meeting is open for any aspects of dust research by means of different methods of studies (in-situ and laboratory measurements, astronomical observations, laboratory and numerical simulations, theoretical modeling, data analyses, etc.). Also welcome are papers on dust-related topics, for example:
• the formation of molecules and their reactions on and their desorption from the surface of a solid substance
• light scattering by non-spherical particles and particulate surfaces
• space missions and instrumentation for measurements of particulates

ADMISSIONS APPLICATION:
Please complete online meeting application at the CPS website in order to attend the meeting. The deadline for the application is May 13, 2018, 11:59 p.m. Japan Standard Time (GMT+09:00). Because the number of participants is limited to a maximum of 50, the online application does not guarantee admission to the meeting. Participants will be determined at the discretion of the SOC and all applicants will be notified of the admissions decision by May 31, 2018. Priority will be given to those who contribute oral or poster sessions and retain enthusiasm for discussions throughout the meeting. For further details, please visit the Cosmic Dust website.
https://www.cps-jp.org/~dust/Application.html

REGISTRATION FEE:
The early bird rate of 10,000 JPY is available for those who complete both admissions application and abstract submission by April 30, 2018. The registration fee for those who complete admissions application on and after May 1, 2018 is 15,000 JPY. While no payment is required at the time of admissions application and abstract submission, the registration fee should be paid by cash on arrival at the venue. No matter what circumstances are specified, the registration fee will not be waived.

BEST POSTER AWARD:
The best poster award will be given to the most excellent content and presentation of a poster at the Cosmic Dust meeting, although higher priorities are given to posters by students and junior scientists. The award winner will be announced in the closing minutes of the meeting.

PROCEEDINGS:
The proceedings of the meeting is planned to be published as a special issue of original papers (or in exceptional cases, review articles from invited speakers) in a peer-reviewed journal. All participants are strongly encouraged to publish a paper in this special issue of the journal, although paper submission to the proceedings is not obligatory. In recent years, the proceedings were published in Planetary and Space Science:

BRIEF HISTORY:
The Cosmic Dust meeting started in 2006 as a session called “Cosmic Dust” of the 3rd AOGS (Asia-Oceania Geoscience Society) annual meeting in Singapore. Dust freaks have kept on organizing the session at subsequent AOGS meetings in Korea (2008), India (2010), and Taiwan (2011). The Cosmic Dust series has been recognized as the most successful session of the AOGS Planetary Sciences Section. In 2012, the time was ripe to be free from organizing restrictions on the AOGS meeting. From that time on, the Cosmic Dust meeting is totally independent of any international conference. The past meetings on Cosmic Dust have been held in a relaxed and joyful atmosphere. So will be the coming one

5) European Lunar Symposium, Toulouse, May 13-16, 2018 - Expression of Interest to Participate
We are pleased to announce that the 6th European Lunar Symposium (ELS) will be held in Toulouse, France May 13-16, 2018. This meeting, organized in partnership with NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI), will cover current advances and prospects in lunar science and exploration in Europe and elsewhere.

Building upon successful previous ELS meetings and acknowledging a growing interest in lunar science exploration worldwide, we anticipate a larger number of participants for ELS 2018. In order to make necessary logistical arrangements, we would like your help (before abstract submission and registration dates are announced) in letting us know before December 1st 2017 about your firm intention to attend ELS 2018.

Please visit the following link to submit your response - European Lunar Symposium (ELS) - 2018 – Letter of Intent to Participate

7) Workshop REACPLAS (PhOM Research Seminar)

We are pleased to announce the REACPLAS workshop, in the series of PhOM Research Seminars, aiming to bring together specialists (in both experiment and theory) of reactivity and elementary collisional processes in the gas phase with modellers of complex media (such as cold plasmas, planetary atmospheres or interstellar media) whose composition and dynamics are driven by these elementary processes. The objective is to exchange knowledge on the available tools and to identify the important processes necessary occurring in these media that are not yet well characterized and that are in need of further investigation which could benefit from new collaborations.

Waiting for your participation and contributions.

The program of the one-day workshop will comprise :
 - 8 invited talks (30’ + 5’ listed in the program below)
 - 4 contributed talk (15’ + 5’ chosen from submitted abstracts (pdf 1 page) to be sent to Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser. before November 7)
 - Posters (during the coffee breaks (2x30’) and lunch (90’))
