Covid-19 – Impacts on the Europlanet Science Congress 2020

In light of the global Covid-19 outbreak, the Europlanet Science Congress 2020 aims to support international efforts to slow the spread of the virus and ensure the safety of individuals and communities. As a result of the pandemic, EPSC2020 will be held as a virtual meeting.

Online programme

The online programme launch is postponed to Tuesday, 4 August 2020.

Aims & scope

The intention of the Europlanet Science Congress 2020 is to cover a broad area of science topics related to planetary science and planetary missions. The programme of the congress will contain oral and poster sessions, and it will emphasize workshops and panel discussions in order to have a strong interaction between the participants.

The Scientific Organizing Committee of the EPSC2020 invites all planetary scientists to participate in the congress, submit contributions to the topical sessions and share their research with colleagues and friends.

EPSC2020 is the first time that EPSC has been held as a virtual meeting. We believe that virtual meetings are likely to play an increasingly important role in supporting our community, widening participation from under-represented groups and tackling the global challenge of climate change. EPSC2020 is an opportunity for us to be creative in developing innovative and supplementary ways for our community to interact.

We look forward to welcoming you to the virtual EPSC2020 in September.
