IPS Virtual Conference -Sponsorship Opportunities
The IPS would like to thank the sponsors of the upcoming virtual conference. Most of the sponsorship opportunities have already been purchased, but a few are still available. A list of current sponsors, and sponsorship opportunities are available here.
NASA Exploration Science Forum
The NESF will feature exploration science research on the Moon, near-Earth asteroids and the moons of Mars. Participants will learn about recent mission results and in-depth analyses of science and exploration studies that are helping return humans to the Moon via the Artemis program. A dedicated side conference for students and young professionals (impact.colorado.edu/lungradcon) are being held virtually the week preceding the Forum on July 1st and 2nd, 2020. This year, due to not meeting in person, the SSERVI Focus Groups will not meet during the week of the NESF and are instead scheduling separate virtual meetings.
This meeting is open to the planetary science, human exploration, astrophysics and heliophysics communities, as well as others involved in the science of human exploration.
