MAVEN Science Community Workshop – Dec. 2, 2012

MAVEN Science Community Workshop
December 2, 2012
Location — downtown San Francisco (venue to be determined)
We are planning a one-day workshop for the Mars science community to discuss the MAVEN mission. We will provide details on the mission plan, spacecraft, instruments, observations and sequencing, and anticipated data products and science return. We want to make detailed information available so that those scientists with an interest in using the data or applying it to models can begin preparing for data return and release, and so that those with an interest in proposing for the planned Participating Scientist program can learn details of what we are planning.

The workshop will be held on the Sunday immediately before the Fall AGU meeting (note that the dates for the AGU meeting have been changed to 3-7 December). It will be somewhere in the downtown San Francisco vicinity in order to make it easy for the participants, at a venue still to be determined.

Details will be posted on this web site as they solidify. Please email Kathleen Cirbo if you would like to be on the mailing list for receiving further information.
