NASA Exploration Science Forum

Date: 18-20 July 2017

The Solar System Exploration Research Institute (SSERVI) is pleased to announce the 4th annual NASA Exploration Science Forum (ESF), to be held in person July 18-20, 2017 at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA.  This year's Forum will feature scientific discussions of human exploration targets of interest (the Moon, near-Earth asteroids, and the moons of Mars).  Science sessions will focus on recent mission results and in-depth analyses of science and exploration studies.  Dedicated side-conferences for graduate students and young professionals will coincide with the ESF.  Public engagement discussions will be interwoven among science topics as well.  
Abstracts will be accepted through 11:59 p.m. PDT April 19, 2017 at
Foreign national participants MUST register at the above url by June 1, 2017.  US citizens may register until July 7, 2017.


We wanted to call your attention to a new workshop that will be held on July 21, 2017 – the Friday after the ESF.  This workshop will focus on “Autonomy in Future SMD Missions.”  This workshop is sanctioned by the SMD Chief Technologist, Michael Seablom, and the SOC will be headed up by Terry Fong from NASA Ames.  This will largely be an open-discussion workshop, anchored by a few overview talks and then with discussion periods, breakout sessions and panels.  Registration for both the ESF and the Autonomy workshop will be through the ESF website at

The workshop details are TBD, but for the sake of planning your travel, plan on staying an extra day at the Forum if you’re interested in autonomous exploration of planetary surfaces!
