The symposium brings together international specialists in petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, and geology to present the latest results of research in planetary science.
The two-day symposium will be organized by topical symposia and problem-oriented sessions.
The scope of this symposium includes, but not limited to:
Lunar and planetary compositions
Lunar and planetary topography and gravity
Lunar and planetary surface processes
Lunar and planetary impact
