1) Solar System symposium in Sapporo: February 26–28, 2018

Dear Friends,

We would like to announce that the Solar-System symposium in Sapporo (3S symposium) will be held from February 26–28, 2018 in Hokkaido, Japan (Rusutsu Resort).  This symposium will be comprised of oral and poster sessions with free discussion time, and will focus on the birth and early evolution of the Solar System from a cosmochemical perspective.

The website will be launched soon.  Photos of the last two symposiums (2016 and 2017) and other information can be found in the following:
https://www.facebook.com/3s2016

The total number of attendees is limited (around fifty). If you plan to come to the symposium, please send your indication of interest to Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser. (The first-come-first-served policy will be applied).  The abstract submission deadline is temporally set on December 18, 2017.  The registration fee will be JPY15,000.  The Lodging-and-Meal fee for 4 nights will be JPY 50,000 or 55,000 (We may need to raise the fee from 50k for the past symposiums to 55k because the hotel will raise room rates. We will make our best effort to keep it the same, but we would appreciate if you could understand the possibility of the raise).  We also note that we do not currently  have a plan to have this symposium in 2019 because we will have the annual meeting of Meteoritical Society in July 2019 in Sapporo.

In February, Hokkaido will be covered with snow and at the symposium venue you can enjoy enjoy winter activities or relax in spa as you can see in the Facebook page.  We also welcome your visit to Hokkaido University and Sapporo city before or after the symposium.  We are happy to assist your travel arrangements if needed.  Travel grants for students will be available.

Please feel free to forward this announcement to your colleagues and students.  Any questions can be directed to Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs.

3) Cosmic Cycle of Dust and Gas in the Galaxy: from Old to Young Stars, Quy Nhon, Vietnam from July 9th to 13th, 2018


The conference will take place at ICISE (http://www.icisequynhon.com/icise-about-us/).  
The conference belongs to a cycle of conferences “Rencontres du Vietnam” about matter and dynamics of Star Forming Regions in our Galaxy: The "Rencontres du Vietnam" on the evolution of gas and dust content from evolved to young stars would like to bring together astronomers working on the circumstellar environment of evolved stars, astronomers working on star (and planet) forming regions and planetologists working on the origin of the solar system. A common conference   bringing all together these communities should provide a better understanding of the cycle of gas and dust from old stars to young ones, in particular, to our young Sun and its planetary system.  The conference “Blowing In the Wind”  in 2016 has addressed the dynamical aspects. The 2017conference about “Star Formation in Different environments” focusses on  how stars form. This conference is dedicated to the gas and dust physico-chemistry and evolution. We will review the molecular and dust contents of envelopes and shells around SuperNovae, AGB and planetary nebulae as those of diffuse, cold and giant molecular clouds. Special sessions will be also dedicated to the origin of material building our own Solar System (meteorite studies, Rosetta results…). High-resolution spectroscopy provides unique information on the chemical compositions, the physical conditions, and the dynamics, in the different media from old star environments to protoplanetary disks. Thanks to its sensitivity and resolving power, ALMA is now allowing us to follow the evolution of matter along the cosmic cycle in our Galaxy and therefore such a conference is very timely.
The conference will consist of plenary sessions with reviews, invited talks, oral and poster presentations (solicited or selected from abstract submissions). Special emphasis is placed on active participation of young researchers and post-docs. Since the audience of the conference will be very broad, a large fraction of time will be dedicated to review talks. The best poster will be awarded a prize.

The conference website is available at:  https://cosmiccycle2018.sciencesconf.org/

4) Cryovolcanism in the Solar System Workshop: Houston, June 5–7, 2018


This workshop aims to advance our understanding of the processes that may lead to extrusive and intrusive volcanism on the icy satellites, KBOs, and hydrous asteroids in our solar system. Specifically, we seek to resolve how and under what conditions volcanism and magmatism occur on these worlds and verify the likely mechanisms responsible for putative volcanic features and magmatic constructs that have been imaged by spacecraft.  https://www.hou.usra.edu/meetings/cryovolcanism2018/


5) École des Houches " Origin and evolution of water and associated volatile elements -
          carbon, nitrogen, noble gases - in the early solar system " March 11-16, 2018.

We are organizing next year a winter school on volatile elements in the solar system. It will take place at the Ecole de Physique des Houches in the French Alps

https://houches.univ-grenoble-alpes.fr/en/

The school will focus on the origin and evolution of water and associated volatile elements  - carbon, nitrogen, noble gases - in the early solar system. The elemental and isotopic compositions of these elements and species have been shaped by heritage from the interstellar medium and/or photon/ionizing partilces - matter intereactions in the disk. These elements/species have played a fundamental role in the condensation of solids, in the accretion of planets, and in the formation of their atmospheres. The analysis of extraterrestrial material (primitive meteorites, lunar and martian meteorites), as well as recent space missions, have permitted to document the compositions of the nebular gas, of asteroids, of comets and of differentiated bodies.

This is an interdisciplinary school, at the frontier between planetary science, chemistry of interstellar medium and cosmochemistry. The school is open to Ph.D. students and researchers who wish to broaden their knowledge. The lectures will be accessible to non specialists, but a background in planetary sciences, geo/cosmochemstry or astrophysics is required. All lectures will be in English.

Confirmed speakers are:

F. Albarède, C.O.D. Alexander, K. Altwegg, G. Avice, P. Caselli, E. Füri, S. Guilloteau, H. Lammer, Z. Leinhart, Y. Marrocchi, B. Marty, M.M.M. Meier, A. Morbidelli, F. Robert, D. Rubie, S. Tachibana, H. Yurimoto.  

There will be no registration fee. The cost for one week (lodging and full board) will be around 400 Euros, plus transportation. Limited support for students, post-docs and young researchers will be considered.


The number of participants is limited to 70 (including the lecturers). More information will be available next September.

Hoping to see you numerous in Les Houches next winter !

The organizing committee:

Evelyn Füri, Yves Marrocchi, Bernard Marty, Alessandro Morbidelli.

8) 22nd International Microlensing Conference: Auckland, New Zealand, 25-28 January 2018


Registration for the 22nd International Microlensing Conference, in Auckland, New Zealand, is now open! The conference will be held on Thursday 25th January 2018 to Sunday 28th January 2018 at the University of Auckland. A Welcome Reception is planned for the evening of Wednesday 24th January.
 
You can register and submit an oral or poster abstract here:
 
https://www.physics.auckland.ac.nz/en/about/international-microlensing-conference.html
 
Please note, Early-bird registrations will close 24th November 2017. A range of accommodation options is available; book early to secure yours.

For a quarter of a century, gravitational microlensing has been used as a channel for astrophysical discovery. Microlensing is:
 
* increasing our knowledge of stellar populations in the Milky Way and other galaxies,
 
* constraining the frequency and mass function of compact objects, including black holes, white dwarfs, and brown dwarfs,
 
* probing the structure of the inner Galaxy and the properties of the stellar population that resides there,
 
* discovering Earth-mass exoplanets from the outer habitable zone out to beyond the snow line, and
 
* becoming a part of space-based observation programmes which are building a map of the planetary abundance in our Galaxy, including an exploration of the frequency and mass function of free-floating planets.
 
Our community has grown, but will need to grow further to meet the challenges put in front of us by new and existing ground- and space-based observatories. Current observational efforts produce data at a rate that is a challenge to analyse with our present resources and tools. We need to address this as we move forward into an era of WFIRST/LSST microlensing.
 
Our theme for this meeting is loosely centered on how to prepare for the coming decade of microlensing observations and the data they will bring.
 
We will discuss what tools we presently have to analyse data, whether and how these can be best adopted as a standard in the field, what tools or skills are missing from our present capabilities, and how we can address these gaps.
 
Microlensing has a lot to offer the broader astrophysical community. In turn, we must reach out to our colleagues in the fields of statistics, computer science, and astroinformatics to let them know of the opportunities and tensions in our field, and to build links with these communities.
 
We look forward to your attendance!

10) workshop “Water during planet formation and evolution”: Zurich,  12-16 February 2018


The workshop will focus on processes governing the delivery of water to planetary bodies in solar and exoplanetary systems, during their formation and long-term evolution. The respective roles of water (ice) inheritance from the interstellar medium, condensation in the protoplanetary nebula and processing and delivery during accretion will be discussed. We will further consider in detail the implications of the late-stage impact phase and long-term consequences for the remarkable diversity of processes affecting the water budget during the evolution of a planetary body. The goal of the workshop is to critically assess the interplay of theory and observations/experiments on the effects of water on planets and establish new research directions.

2) session AGU :« NG007: Geophysical Fluid Dynamics - Session ID#: 22936

Session Description: This session brings together researchers interested in all aspects of fluid mechanics of the Earth and planets, including oceans, atmospheres and interiors. Fluid motion in the different planetary layers involves many of the same basic mechanisms such as waves, vortices, instabilities and turbulence. An exchange of knowledge from the different communities will be mutually beneficial to all. In this view, observational, experimental, theoretical and numerical studies of rotating, stratified, convecting and/or conductive fluids of general interest to geophysicists are welcome.

Conveners:  Michael Le Bars, Claudia Cenedese, and Michael A Calkins »


3) AGU SESSION: NATURE, DISTRIBUTION AND EVOLUTION OF ORGANIC MATTER IN  THE SOLAR SYSTEM

Organic matter is critical for habitability of an extraterrestrial
environment and the development of life. It is believed that life on
Earth arose from a chemical complexification of simple organic
molecules, yet many questions remain about the nature and origin of
these building blocks for life. Understanding the chemical processes
that occur in the varied environments of the solar system (e.g. Ocean
Worlds, Mars, comets, meteorites), and investigating the nature,
abundance and distribution of those molecules, give insights on the
processes that occurred on primitive Earth. It also provides valuable
information on the habitability and potential for life throughout the
solar system.

We invite contributions that include (1) remote or in situ observations
of organic matter on planetary bodies, (2) field work, experimental and
modeling studies that could predict organics distribution in planetary
environments, and (3) promising locations, instrument concepts and
strategies for investigating organic astrochemistry.

5) session AGU: Volatiles in terrestrial planets

Dear colleagues,

The AGU conference will take place in New Orleans this year (11-15 December 2017).

We would like to encourage you to submit abstracts to our session entitled: V035 « Volatiles in terrestrial planets: their role and signatures in differentiation, volcanic, magmatic, and atmospheric processes » in the section: Volcanology, Geochemistry and Petrology
The deadline for all submissions is Wednesday, 2 August 23:59 EDT.

Here is the description of the session's main topics and objectives:

«Volatile components play a critical role in magma generation, ascent, and eruption. Their origin and behavior during planetary differentiation and evolution are also key when addressing physical and chemical processes occurring in planetary interiors (e.g. oxidation state, core formation, mantle dynamics…), atmosphere formation, and the habitability of planets. This session offers an opportunity to gather experts studying diverse aspects of volatile behavior, including solubility, speciation, degassing, partitioning, structural incorporation, diffusion, phase equilibrium, their terrestrial and planetary elemental and isotopic abundances. Contributions may include, but are not limited to: 1) major and trace volatile elements (C, H, F, Cl, S, N…) geochemistry, 2) noble gases; 3) experimental studies on phase equilibrium and physical properties, such as solubility, diffusivity, and elemental partitioning of volatiles 4) role of volatile degassing on the chemistry of atmospheres, and 5) computational studies such as molecular dynamics simulations, ab initio calculations or thermodynamic modeling of volatile-bearing systems».

We would be pleased to consider submissions about results on innovative experimental and/or theoretical studies, modelling works as well as results from synthetic or natural samples.

Thank you for your attention.
Hope to see you at the AGU.

2) association nationale “les p’tits cueilleurs d’étoiles”
Nous vous contactons pour vous demander votre aide pour soutenir le projet de l’association nationale “les p’tits cueilleurs d’étoiles” (http://lesptitscueilleursdetoiles.fr/) créée en 2016.
L’objectif de cette association est de faire briller les yeux des enfants hospitalisés grâce au monde de l’espace et des étoiles. Depuis un an, Les p’tits cueilleurs d’étoiles sont intervenus dans plusieurs hôpitaux en France. Durant les animations réalisées, les enfants ont pu toucher des météorites, découvrir les différentes planètes du système solaire, se balader sur Mars ou encore découvrir les cratères d’impact à la surface de la Terre et des autres planètes. Pour l'instant, nous proposons surtout des animations en groupes, adaptées aux enfants à partir de 7-8 ans. Mais nous aimerions proposer des animations en chambre pour les plus petits et en habit d'astronaute. Cette expérience a été réalisée dans les hôpitaux partenaires à Paris et dans le Sud-Ouest et a été un véritable moment d’évasion pour les enfants.
Pour mettre en place cette nouvelle animation en particulier à Nantes et à Lille nous avons besoin de vous ! Nous avons donc mis en place une collecte via un financement participatif pour l'achat du matériel nécessaire. L'idée est de vous faire participer à cette aventure en vous demandant une petite aide avec des contributions à partir de 5 euros. Selon le niveau de l'apport, de beaux cadeaux vous attendent avec notamment des météorites, des animations autour de l’astronomie ou des agrandissements de photos de planètes.
Vous pouvez dès à présent participer à notre projet intitulé “Des étoiles dans les hôpitaux” sur ce site qui vous montrera également le détail de ce que nous souhaitons financer :
https://www.kisskissbankbank.com/des-etoiles-dans-les-hopitaux
92 personnes ont déjà participé et il nous reste aujourd'hui 1320 euros à collecter sur 4500 euros. Nous devons atteindre ce seuil avant le 22 Juin. Si ce n'est pas le cas, le projet ne pourra pas se faire et les dons seront entièrement remboursés. Tous les dons même les plus petits sont les bienvenus ! La diffusion de ce projet au plus grand nombre de personnes pourra également beaucoup nous aider.
Par avance merci beaucoup pour votre aide à tous !

4)  SELENE symposium 2017, 13th and 14th September, Tokyo
As we informed, we are planning to hold the SELENE symposium 2017,
 13th and 14th September, in Tokyo, Japan.
 
 Now the tentative HP site of the symposium is open.
 
 http://planetb.sci.isas.ac.jp/selenesymp2017/selenesymp2017.html
 (Attention: We changed the URL address. If you were informed
  another address, please change it in your address book.)
 
 The information of the registration and abstract submission will be on
the site by the end of this month, June.
 (We are planning that the registration and submission fee is free.)
 
 We are looking forward to meeting with you in September, a good season,
 in Japan!

 
Best regards,
Junichi Haruyama

P.S. I am privately planning a field trip to some lava tubes (and a hot
spring, perhaps) around Mt. Fuji.
 It may cost 5000 - 10000 JPY/ person for a bus charter. If you have
 interests, I appreciate your advanced contact to me.

5) Africa Initiative for Planetary and Space Sciences - Call for endorsement

Dear colleagues,
This week EOS has published a call to endorse the Africa Initiative for Planetary and Space Sciences by myself and a group of 26 co-authors, and I would like to personally invite you to support the current efforts of groups of planetary and space scientists in Africa.

We are looking for collaborators who are willing to be involved in the next stages of this initiative. Therefore, please consider the call if :

- you are an African student who is interested in gaining a research experience (MSc or PhD) in Planetary or Space Sciences (PSS).

- you are a young or senior researcher with expertise in PSS and you are interested in giving lectures in Africa, in outreach activities or in co-supervising African students in PSS topics.

- you are an Africa-based researcher who is willing to start, develop or strengthen a PSS activity in your laboratory

- you are interested in participating in a large pan-African network of PSS scientists

Résumé du sujet:
Titan, la plus grosse lune de la planète géante Saturne, possède une atmosphère dense
d'azote et de méthane. Irradiée par le soleil, l’atmosphère produit une chimie organique
complexe et des aérosols. A basse altitude un cycle du méthane, comparable à celui de
l'eau sur terre, est à l’oeuvre. Cependant, les détails de ce cycle sont très mal connus.
Des mers d’hydrocarbures sculptent les paysages des régions polaires et produisent une
surface complexe. La mission Cassini-Huygens a exploré le système de Saturne, et donc
Titan, depuis 13 ans et l’interprétation peut prendre encore des années ou même des
décennies. Ce projet vise à poursuivre le travail d’analyse des données issues de Cassini-
Huygens qui seront toutes publiques, et donc disponibles, pendant la thèse. Dans
l’équipe, une forte expertise, internationalement reconnue (collaboration avec le Jet
Propulsion Laboratory de Pasadena, Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, récentes
publications dans Nature Astronomy) est présente concernant l'analyse des observations
de Titan et les processus physiques en jeu. L’objectif de ce projet est de continuer la
caractérisation des propriétés physiques de Titan (brume, nuages, surface,...) en utilisant
et améliorant les modèles existant, et, ce faisant, déterminer la nature de la surface qui
est masquée par l’atmosphère. Ensuite, nous utiliserons des modèles de thermochimie et
d’écoulement de cryolave de la surface de Titan (modèles disponibles au laboratoire)
pour comprendre et expliquer ces résultats. Titan a un important potentiel pré-biotique et
pourrait être le prototype d’objets similaires qu’on découvrira peut être dans le futur
parmi les exoplanètes.

Profil de l'étudiant(e)
L'étudiant(e) retenu(e) devra avoir une solide formation en physique générale (validée par exemple par
un diplôme d'ingénieur ou une Agrégation), les Masters plus spécialisés (astrophysique, planétologie,
télédetection, climat/météorologie) seront très appréciés. Sur le plan technique l'étudiant(e) devra
connaître un langage de programmation compilé et avoir des bonnes compétences concernant un
langage interprété. Une bonne maîtride l'anglais est requise.

Financement
Cette thèse sera financé complètement, sous réserve de sélection (réponse le 13 juillet 2017), par la
région Grand-Est et de l'URCA.


7) AGU, la Nouvelle Orléans du 11 au 15 Décembre 2017.

    -session 22639: Accretion, Differentiation and Early Planetary Evolution

The early planetary evolution is punctuated by major events such as accretion and core formation. These involve a variety of physical and chemical processes interacting over a very large range of scales in space and time. Understanding these earliest stages is fundamental in order to constrain the subsequent billions of years of thermo-chemical evolution of terrestrial bodies. Due to vigorous internal dynamics and to their size, the largest terrestrial objects have undergone one or several episodes of global melting, which complicates the reconstruction of their early histories. However, smaller objects may have retained frozen traces of their early evolution, thus providing a unique opportunity to test model predictions against observations. We welcome contributions from fluid dynamics, geochemistry, astrophysics, mineral physics, geology and petrology that address the early formation and evolution of planetary objects ranging from meteorites to Earth-sized planets.
     -session V035 « Volatiles in terrestrial planets: their role and signatures in differentiation, volcanic, magmatic, and atmospheric processes »
«Volatile components play a critical role in magma generation, ascent, and eruption. Their origin and behavior during planetary differentiation and evolution are also key when addressing physical and chemical processes occurring in planetary interiors (e.g. oxidation state, core formation, mantle dynamics…), atmosphere formation, and the habitability of planets. This session offers an opportunity to gather experts studying diverse aspects of volatile behavior, including solubility, speciation, degassing, partitioning, structural incorporation, diffusion, phase equilibrium, their terrestrial and planetary elemental and isotopic abundances. Contributions may include, but are not limited to: 1) major and trace volatile elements (C, H, F, Cl, S, N…) geochemistry, 2) noble gases; 3) experimental studies on phase equilibrium and physical properties, such as solubility, diffusivity, and elemental partitioning of volatiles 4) role of volatile degassing on the chemistry of atmospheres, and 5) computational studies such as molecular dynamics simulations, ab initio calculations or thermodynamic modeling of volatile-bearing systems».

    -session 29233: The Dynamic Moon: Insights From Apollo Through the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter
Session Description:

The Moon has been a witness plate for planetary processes at 1 AU since its formation. Recent analyses using samples from Apollo missions, as well as data from a host of lunar orbital missions, both new and old, provides a fresh view into the processes that shape the Moon over timescales ranging from millions of years to contemporary changes we observe today. This session will highlight the diversity of current research that is revealing the dynamic history of Earth’s partner in space: topics including the importance of lunar volatiles, the Moon’s complicated geologic history shaped by volcanism and impact bombardment, and the ways in which the Moon’s uppermost surface is still evolving, all with profound implications for our understanding of other planetary bodies.
The deadline for all submissions is Wednesday, 2 August 23:59 EDT.


8) Young Astronomer School on the Scientific Exploitation of the Gaia Data - Paris (FIAP, Paris 14ème), 26 February - 2 March 2018
The Doctoral School of Astronomy and Astrophysics of Paris and the Observatoire de Paris are organizing an international school for PhD and post-doctoral students on the scientific exploitation of the Gaia data and the study of the stellar populations of our Galaxy. The school will propose lectures given by internationally recognized experts in the study of the formation and evolution of the Milky Way and will be accompanied by hands-on sessions. The school will allow the participants to master the knowledge and tools allowing them to manipulate and to explore the Gaia catalog and to derive properties necessary for the analysis of stellar populations, such as the age of stars, their orbits in the Galaxy, etc.

The application deadline is November 30, 2017, but the attendance is limited to 40-50 students and candidates are therefore  strongly encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
