The study of Planetary Atmospheres is a key component of the UK’s planetary science portfolio, enabling leadership in instrumentation, multi-spectral data analysis (both space- and ground-based), and numerical simulation.  We invite abstracts from the Solar System Planetary Atmospheres community, highlighting new research and discoveries, new missions and opportunities, and sharing of techniques and tools to foster future collaborations within the community.

We will give priority to early-career speakers who have had limited opportunities to present their work during the pandemic.

To submit an abstract, please complete this form by October 14th.

The details of the hybrid approach (e.g., the platform for posters and interactions) will be provided in the coming weeks - please watch this space.  This meeting builds on the RAS-sponsored meeting in February 2020, providing an opportunity to celebrate achievements, to network and discuss future opportunities, and to give early-career researchers a chance to showcase their latest discoveries.
