Conference: Solar System with the ELTs

Published: 01 Mar 2022

The Solar System Science with the ELTs conference will focus on ESO’s ELT unique capabilities to address the open questions in the diverse subfields of Solar System science. Special emphasis will be put on how the ELT, alongside with the GMT and TMT, will fit in the rich landscape of ground- and space-based telescopes, in particular with the current and future ESA missions.

The conference will consist of two parts. In the first, technical session scheduled for April 28, 2022, ELT instrument experts will present the capabilities of the instruments for Solar System observations. The speakers will be encouraged to use the conference materials to develop further their ideas of the specific contribution of the ELTs to their field of research. These ideas, alongside with talks reviewing the state of the art knowledge in the different subfields of planetary science, will then be presented during the main part of the conference taking place from June 13-15, 2022.
