8th EUROPEAN LUNAR SYMPOSIUM, May 12-14, 2020, virtual

Update, March 14:  Because of the coronavirus outbreak, this meeting now will take place virtually, not in person.  This message is posted on the event’s website.

Attention! (Updated as of 3/10/20)

We would like to inform you that the in-person 8th European Lunar Symposium (ELS), which was planned for 12-14 May in Padua, Italy has now been moved to a ‘virtual/online-only” meeting in light of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks causing major disruptions around the world.

Although we were more than 2 months away from the actual meeting, many attendees were already having to seek approvals for travel from their respective funding agencies/organizations, which were not forthcoming. Also, the ELS itself was not in a position to bear any financial risk, should the meeting had to be cancelled at a much shorter notice.

More details on the virtual meeting programme will be provided soon. Meanwhile, please share this information with others as you deem appropriate and keep the dates in your diary!

Free registrations for the virtual ELS will be open from 6 March 2020, and will close on 8 May 2020. Only registered participants will receive the participation link.

We truly apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused to you.

Original Entry: The 8th European Lunar Symposium will take place May 12-14, 2020 at the Centro Culturale San Gaetano in Padova, Italy.  It is divided into five themes:  Science of the Moon, Science on the Moon, Science From the Moon, Science Enabling In-Situ Resource Utilization, and Future Missions.

More information is on the event’s website.
