LEAG Annual Meeting Announcement

[LEAG Press Release - 14.06.2012]
The 2012 Annual Meeting of the Lunar Exploration Analysis Group will be held October 22–24, 2012, at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 17 mission and the end of the Apollo program to the Moon. The focus of this meeting will be a discussion of the ongoing contributions of the Apollo program to solar system exploration and options and opportunities for the next decade of lunar science and exploration. This meeting will include presentations and discussions on science objectives, robotic and human exploration strategies and technologies, critical required technology development commercial opportunities, education and outreach, and the Moon as a necessary stepping stone to the rest of the solar system.

The three-day meeting will promote lunar community discourse through both invited and contributed oral presentations and lively panel discussions. As in previous years, these sessions will be a blend of science, exploration, resource utilization, and commercial activities.

Contributed abstracts are highly encouraged and should be centered on plans for the next decade of lunar exploration. These abstracts will be used to augment the invited oral papers and in poster sessions scheduled for Monday and Tuesday. The call for abstracts will be included in the second announcement.

June 26, 2012 = Deadline for submitting indication of interest form.
