The Dust, Atmosphere and Plasma environment of the Moon and Small Bodies (DAP-2017) workshop will be held at LASP in Boulder, Colorado on January 11th-13th, 2017. The workshop will be a forum to (i) discuss current understanding of the surface environment of the Moon, the moons of Mars, and comets and asteroids, (ii) share new results from past and ongoing missions to airless bodies and comets, and (iii) describe expectations for planned upcoming missions to airless bodies and comets. The meeting web site is hosted at http://impact.colorado.edu/dap_meeting.html where you can learn more.

DAP-2017 is a NASA/SSERVI follow up on two previous NASA/NLSI-SSERVI workshops, LDAP-2010 and DAP-2012. Contributions to LDAP-2010 http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/00320633/59/14 and DAP-2012 http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/00320633/89 were published in special issues of Planetary and Space Sciences. A similar volume is planned to report the contributions to DAP-2017.

The workshop is hosted by M. Horányi and A. Stern, and supported by NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI): Institute for Modeling Plasma, Atmospheres, and Cosmic Dust (IMPACT), the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP), and the Center for Integrated Plasma Studies (CIPS) of the University of Colorado .

Planned invited talks include:

Surface Properties of Asteroids: Dan Britt/U. Central Florida and SSERVI
Rosetta Results on Cometary Plasmas: Jim Burch/SwRI
Physical Plasma Environment of the Moon: Jasper Halekas/U. Iowa
Osiris Rex: Vicky Hamilton/SwRI
Europa Dust Environment: Sascha Kempf/U. Colorado and SSERVI
Search for the Dust Torus Around Mars: Mark Showalter/SETI
Dust Environment of the Moon: Jamey Szalay/SwRI
Mars, Phobos, Deimos Dust Environment: Alexander Zakharov/ITEP Moscow

The DAP-2017 abstract deadline is Sept. 30th, 2016; submit your abstract to dusty.meetings@gmail.com
