›XVI Rencontres du Vietnam - Planetary Science: The Young Solar System
What: For decades scientific researchers have wondered how the solar system formed and evolved. This active field of research is populated with cosmochemists, planetary scientists, geologists, geophysicists and astronomers, among others, who all try to unravel what happened over 4.5 billion years ago. Yet despite all these international efforts the nature of the formation and evolution of the young solar system and the proclivity of the terrestrial planets to support a (long-term) biosphere remains obscure. It makes sense at this time to synthesis what we know, highlight key points of agreement and contention, and to provide recommendations for scientific progress.
Focus: Our goal is to host a highly interdisciplinary mid-sized meeting of broad scope with highly acclaimed key speakers of international standing. We aim to unite ourselves to discuss barriers to progress, propose solutions and identify and foster future collaboration that will advance our understanding of the young solar system. We intend to formulate a coherent and scientifically sound story on the birth and evolution of the young solar system.
Structure: This highly interdisciplinary meeting will last five days and will be a mixed of presentations and active discussions with one afternoon for leisurely activities. All days will consist of presentations both from invited members and contributions from attendees showing the current state-of-the-art in their fields. There will also be plenty of time for poster sessions.
Venue: The International Center of Interdisciplinary Science Education (ICISE) is a unique science and education institution located in the coastal city of Quy Nhon, Vietnam. It welcomes national and international Conferences, specialized professional colloquia, as well as selected Thematic Schools, in particular for doctoral students and has full support and appreciation of the local and national authorities.Tweets by spaceagenda
