The Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC) is recognized as the world’s premier planetary science conference, bringing together international specialists in petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, geology, and astronomy to present the latest results of research in planetary science.
The Kuiper Materials Imaging and Characterization Facility is pleased to announce an annual scholarship in electron microscopy. Funds in the amount of $5,000 per year have been provided and will be awarded equally to two graduate students generating cutting-edge research and publications in the area of electron microscopy.
The Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC), jointly organized by the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) and NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC), brings together international specialists in petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, geology, and astronomy from around the world to present the latest results of research in planetary science.
The BIO5 Institute, in partnership with CyVerse, the D7 Data Science Institute and the UArizona Libraries is hosting a Data Carpentry workshop in image processing. This workshop will teach core computing and analysis skills to help researchers be more productive and effective.
Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.
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.
