OUTER PLANET SYSTEMS SESSION OF AOGS
 
Please be notified of the Planetary Science Session PS22 : 
"Outer planet systems," which is included in the Planetary 
Science Program of the AOGS (Asia-Oceania Geosciences Society) 
1st Annual Meeting, to take place in Singapore (5-8 July 2004).
 
The deadline for abstracts is 15 April 2004.

Brief Description of PS22: "Outer planets systems"
 
The Galileo mission has greatly improved our understanding of 
Jupiter and the Jovian satellite system. We expect the same from 
Cassini and Huygens for Saturn and its major moon Titan as well 
as the other satellites and the rings. Reports on data from both 
missions as well as interpretations and theoretical studies are 
welcome in this session.  The session will also be open for those 
contributing about Uranus and Neptune, in particular in comparison 
with Jupiter and Saturn, as well as for general studies of gaseous 
planets and their rocky and icy satellites.  We encourage 
presentations on ground-based measurements that help us complete 
our vision and understanding of our Solar System.  Also, laboratory 
experiments tightly connected to these aspects with direct 
applications to the studies of outer planets and their systems are 
welcome.  Posters are also solicited.

16th ANNUAL NASA PLANETARY SCIENCES SUMMER SCHOOL
 
Applications are now being accepted for the 16th Annual NASA 
Planetary Sciences Summer School and are due June 4.  At least 
one session will be held August 2-6, 2004, at the Jet Propulsion 
Laboratory in Pasadena, California.  The school is intended for 
science and engineering graduate and post-doc students who have a 
strong interest in careers in planetary exploration.  An intensive 
team exercise introduces students to the process of developing a 
mission concept into reality.  More information and the application 
is on-line at http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/pscischool/
