ICARUS NEWS: TWITTER FEED, LETTERS, INVITED REVIEWS, SPECIAL ISSUES
Icarus now has a Twitter feed:
The feed is set up show papers published (updated daily) but, as we build
a following, we will be able to add a curator and some more content.
We are now pleased to announce the introduction of a ‘Letter’ article type
for Icarus, allowing the rapid publication of concise articles that deal with
all aspects of Solar System studies. The aim is to offer an effective method
of bringing new results quickly to the public. Manuscript size is limited to
3000 words, with a maximum of 4 figures and/or tables, and no more than
4 pages of supplementary materials. Authors should select the article type
‘Letter’ when submitting their contribution. The Letters are short research
papers and do not replace Icarus Notes (for which Supplementary materials
are not allowed).
We are also pleased to announce the introduction of Invited Reviews for Icarus.
From time to time the Editors may invite specific authors or groups to contribute
a review article to Icarus on a key topic, area, or event. Invited Review authors
should select the article type ‘Invited Review’ when submitting their contribution.
Only reviews that have been specifically invited by the Editors will be considered.
Special issues: We welcome proposals for special issues. Our Tunguska special
issue is being published this month. Special issues on Mars Express to ExoMars
and Late Mars Workshop are in progress, as are special issues on Cassini and TNOs.
EUROPLANET SOCIETY MEMBERSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT
Please consider becoming a member of the Europlanet Society, the new European
platform for planetary scientist and organizing body of the EPSC meetings.
Europlanet Society membership will entitle you to discounted fees when you
register for the EPSC-DPS Joint Meeting 2019, in the same respect as DPS
membership. You will find all information regarding the distinct membership
programs on the Europlanet Planet website, including reduced fees for students,
early career scientists, amateur astronomers and retired scientists.
Other membership benefits include:
- Opportunities to take an active role in shaping the future of planetary science in Europe by electing or standing for offices and committee positions in the Europlanet Society
- Reduced rates for Europlanet events, including the annual European Planetary Science Congress (EPSC)
- Participation in events with policy makers and funders
- Support from Regional Hubs in developing local networks for planetary science
- Opportunities to input into policy and strategy papers and consultations
- Access to the Europlanet Early Career Network (EPEC) for early career researchers
If you would like to receive any more information about the Society or the benefits of joining, please contact Jonas L’Haridon at[email protected].

BINARY ASTEROIDS IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM WORKSHOP: SECOND CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
The first Binary Asteroids in the Solar System Workshop was held in Steamboat
Springs, CO, in 2007. The workshop has been held every three years since in
Poland, Hawai’i, and the Czech Republic.
The 5th workshop returns to Colorado, this time in Fort Collins, near the
Colorado State University campus, on 2019 September 3-5.
Details are available at
The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 60.
Registration and abstract submission are now open. The deadline for early
abstract submissions is July 1, 2019. Late submissions (posters only) will
be accepted from July 1 through August 15, 2019.
The workshops are characterized by a relaxed atmosphere and free format, with
almost as much time for discussion as for the presentations themselves.
The goal of the workshop is to bring together various ideas on the detection,
characterization, formation, and implications of binary and multiple objects
among the NEO, main-belt, Trojan, Centaur, TNO populations. We hope to include
all of the many modes of observation, in all of the dynamical populations, as
well as theory and numerical modeling of formation and evolution of these
systems. We especially welcome the new topics of rings of small bodies, and
heliocentric orbital pairs of asteroids and their implications.
There will be some funds available for students to waive either the
registration fee or for travel support. Students hoping for a grant
should register soon. No payment will be required at the time. However,
registering will reserve a seat in the meeting room pending review of
the request. Proof of student status may be required.
