Cassini-UVIS Header

Planetary Rings Workshop
August 13-15, 2014

CU-LASP, Space Science (SPSC) Building
3665 Discovery Drive, Boulder, CO

This workshop will be open to all interested parties and any observational or theoretical research on the properties, dynamics, origin or evolution of any planetary ring system is appropriate. This meeting will highlight the latest Cassini results. We plan on predominantly oral talks, but posters will be considered. Ample time will be allowed for discussion. Previous workshops were held in Ithaca (2011), Paris (2008) and Whitefish, MT (2006). Planned program includes an opening reception Tuesday evening, a workshop dinner on Wednesday, and working lunch on Friday. The meeting will end Friday evening.

Hosted by Larry Esposito
