The aim of the Planetary & Solar System Sciences Division of the EGU is the promotion of all fields of planetary sciences, ground-based and space mission exploration of the solar system and beyond,  and related models. PS covers papers on both fundamental and applied topics regarding the exploration of the Solar System. The Division, devoted to Science applications in Space, hosts interdisciplinary contributions on the origins and the evolution of the Solar System and the exoplanetary Systems, as well as ideas for future exploration while largely contributing to outreach and educational activities for all audiences.

Workshop for early career scientists!

In the framework of a two days workshop entitled "Space Exploration - Pushing the Frontiers", we will create an exhibition on planetary exploration. The exhibition will travel with the participants to be shown at their university/institution. In groups, we will develop different stations of the exhibition concerning the different planetary bodies, the according space missions, the future plans etc. We imagine the exhibition consisting of posters, videos, multimedia and texts, but there is no limit to the creativity of the participants. Share your knowledge in your area of expertise with other young space scientists, and with laymen, children and colleagues.

This month, the EGU announced the first AOGS–EGU joint conference, on New Dimensions for Natural Hazards in Asia. The meeting is taking place from 4 to 8 February 2018 in the Philippines and the deadline for abstract submission is 31 August. Another important deadline to keep in mind is 15 June: you have until then to nominate deserving scientists for all EGU 2018 medals and awards. We encourage the EGU membership to consider gender, geographical and cultural balance when nominating outstanding Earth, planetary and space scientists at various career stages. Finally, we invite you to look back to the EGU 2017 General Assembly by watching the highlights of the conference on video or some of the web streamed sessions, such as medal lectures and great debates. If you haven’t yet, please help us make the 2018 meeting even better by submitting your feedback by the end of today (31 May).
