A special volume in the journal of Planetary and Space Science contains papers presented at the 2017 “Dust, Atmosphere, and Plasma Environment of the Moon and Small Bodies” (DAP-2017) workshop, which was held on January 11–13, 2017 in Boulder Colorado. The workshop followed earlier DAP meetings. Papers from the LDAP- 2010 and DAP-2012 workshops were published in special issues of Planetary and Space Sciences, Volume 59, pp:1671–1826, (2011), and Volume 89, pp:1–194, 2013, respectively.

The DAP-2017 workshop had over 100 participants, representing a wide spectrum of career stages from undergraduate students to scientists from the Apollo era. The workshop was organized as a part of the activities in the Institute for Modeling Plasmas, Atmospheres, and Cosmic Dust (IMPACT) of NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI).

The DAP-2017 workshop, similarly to earlier DAP meetings, was a forum to discuss current understanding of the environments of airless objects in the Solar System with special focus on the Moon, asteroids, and the moons of Mars, Phobos and Deimos. It focused primarily on open science questions, the status of IMPACT’s modeling and laboratory experimental capabilities, required measurements, and instrument capabilities for future investigations on orbit, or to be deployed on the surface. The program of the workshop and the presentations are available online at http://impact.colorado.edu/dap_meeting.html.
