Asteroid Science in the Age of Hayabusa2 and OSIRIS-REx

The workshop provides an opportunity to summarize our understanding of near-Earth asteroids, following the Hayabusa2 and OSIRIS-REx encounters with Ryugu and Bennu. The organizers invite contributions spanning all relevant research on small bodies in the solar system, including comets, asteroids, meteors, meteorites, and returned samples. Presentations discussing observations, laboratory work, theoretical investigations, and future mission concepts are welcome. Participants are invited to suggest additional special topics.
