2019 Cassini Science Symposium

May 20-24, 2019

Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
Laurel, Maryland, USA


The Cassini Science Symposium has been cancelled.

Acting Planetary Science Division Director Lori Glaze recently informed the Cassini project that additional funding anticipated in FY19 will be limited to a small transition amount. So, the Cassini Science Symposium, to be held May 20th – 24th at APL, has been cancelled to minimize travel and meeting expenses. Remaining Cassini funds will be used to help support, to the extent possible, the highest priority human resources, including students, postdocs, early career scientists and other investigators who are disproportionately impacted.

Thank you for your tremendous contributions to date.

APL will host a five-day meeting to review the latest findings on the Saturn and Jupiter systems, including the interpretation and synthesis of results. Sessions will include invited and contributed interdisciplinary talks covering the following broad disciplines: Planets, Magnetospheres, Rings, Titan, and Icy Satellites. Presentations emphasizing Saturn-Jupiter synergies are encouraged. The Symposium will serve as a springboard for future studies and space missions and future mission posters are welcome.
