CELEBRATING THE IMPACT OF THE PLANETARY SCIENCE JOURNAL!
Since 2020, the Planetary Science Journal (PSJ) has been home to some of the most impactful research in planetary science. Owned by the AAS and DPS, the journal is fully open-access and run by scientists, for scientists.
PSJ has published over 700 papers in the last three years and has now received its first-ever impact factor. This milestone highlights how PSJ is supporting researchers in providing a high-quality resource to publish their latest work:
Journal Impact Factor™: 3.4
Downloads in 2022: 353,845

HARTMANN STUDENT TRAVEL GRANT DEADLINE FOR DPS-EPSC 2023 IS AUG 7
A generous contribution from William K. Hartmann, supplemented by member contributions and matching funds from the DPS Committee, has enabled a limited number of grants to support the participation of early-career scientists at the annual DPS meeting. The due date for applications this year is August 7, 2023 at 11:59 PM, PT. Application details can be found here: meetings/hartmann_travel_grant. Grants are primarily intended for students, but post-doctoral scientists without other means of support will also be considered.
Note that Hartmann travel grants are restricted to early-career scientists from non-European institutions this year. Scientists from European institutions should apply for travel funds from the Europlanet Society (deadline is August 4, 2023):
Hartmann travel grants rarely exceed a few hundred dollars and are intended to provide a supplement that makes the difference on whether or not the person is able to attend the annual meeting. In some cases the travel grant may be requested to cover the meeting registration fee. Preference is given to students who have not received a Travel Grant in the past, and applications from both in person and virtual attendees are welcome. Questions may be directed to the DPS Vice Chair ([email protected]).
DPS-EPSC 2023 OUTSTANDING POSTER CONTEST (OPC)
This year, there will be an outstanding poster contest at DPS-EPSC 2023. Participation is open to all BSc or MSc students, PhD candidates, as well as scientists that obtained their last degree after 1 January 2023. Participants need to be first and presenting author of the submitted abstract, and registration is only considered for those abstracts that are selected to be presented as a poster. If the above-mentioned conditions of eligibility are fulfilled, you may sign up for the contest by 1 September 2023. As a prize, each awardee will receive a registration waiver that can either be used for the upcoming EPSC2024 or DPS2024 meeting.

+JWST Cycle 3 Proposal Preparation Session
+NASA Proposal Writing Workshop
+Workshop on Juno and Juno-Supporting Results
+Juno Open Team Meeting Workshop: Galilean Satellites and Radiation Environment

AGU SESSION DI016: TRACING CHEMICAL AND ISOTOPIC SIGNATURES DURING ROCKY BODY EVOLUTION
The chemical and isotopic signatures of rocky bodies in the Solar System result from complex processes spanning their growth from dust to their present-day states. Trends in major and trace, refractory and volatile, and siderophile and lithophile elements, record planetary scale processes and formation conditions. The goal of this session is to discuss the diverse processes that influence the chemical and isotopic reservoirs of rocky bodies during initial condensation, magma ocean crystallization and crust formation. We invite studies that employ interdisciplinary techniques that enhance our understanding of the chemistry of rocky planetary bodies and the early Solar System, including high P-T experiments, ab-initio calculations, impact and melt simulations, and extraterrestrial sample analysis. Submissions from early career researchers and members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged.
Susana Hoyos – Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Gabriel Nathan – Michigan State University, Jesse Gu – Harvard University,
AGU 2023 will be a hybrid format for more information please look here: https://www.agu.org/Fall-Meeting
Abstract Deadline is August 2, 2023 (23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT)
AGU SESSION P004: ATMOSPHERES, CLIMATE, AND POTENTIAL HABITABILITY OF ROCKY EXOPLANETS
This session invites submissions that probe the nature of rocky exoplanets, including: What can our Solar System teach us about rocky exoplanets? How different are atmospheres and climates on rocky planets around other stars, on rocky planets in exotic orbital states, or on rocky planets with radically different formation histories? How can we characterize such planets via observations? And could the processes that kept Earth habitable over billions of years also occur elsewhere? Submissions that use observation, experiment, or theory are all welcome.
Invited Speakers: Joshua Krissansen-Totton (University of Washington) and Caroline Morley (University of Texas at Austin).
Please submit your abstract by August 2 at: https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm23/prelim.cgi/Session/186717.
Conveners: Lixiang Gu (Peking University), Daniel Koll (Peking University), Thaddeus Komacek (University of Maryland), Laura Schaefer (Stanford University)
