10th International Planetary Probe Workshop

Sending space vehicles to other worlds is one of humankind’s most challenging and rewarding ventures. The 10th International Planetary Probe Workshop (IPPW-10) will bring together engineers, technologists, scientists, mission designers, space agency leaders, and students from around the world for a compelling, week-long collaboration focused on exploring solar system destinations via in-situ missions.

This 10th workshop will build upon the IPPW tradition by encouraging international cooperation in planetary probe missions, new technologies, and scientific discoveries. In addition, students from around the world will have a unique opportunity to present their work and to interact with the leaders in their discipline areas.

IPPW-10 will be held June 17-21, 2013, at San Jose State University, California, USA. Our program includes invited talks, contributed presentations, posters, and opportunities for networking with colleagues. Preceding the workshop, on June 15-16, a 2-day short course on Entry, Descent, and Landing Systems will be offered.
