Registration Open for JWST Proposal Workshops

Status Report From: Planetary Exploration Newsletter
Posted: Monday, August 21, 2017

Two 2.5 day workshops will be held this Fall for those interested in proposing solar system observations with the James Webb Space Telescope(JWST). The first (Nov. 13-15, 2017) will be at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI), in Baltimore Maryland. The second (Dec. 13-15, 2017) will be held at the European Space Research Technology Center (ESTEC), in Noordwijk, the Netherlands.

Each workshop will include a mixture of presentations about the promise of JWST for solar system science, specifics on observer planning tools and observatory capabilities, and hands-on training and Q&A with the planning tools. Observations of solar system targets approved for guaranteed-time observers (GTOs) and through the Early Release Science (ERS) program will be summarized. The workshop is timed to support JWST cycle-1 open time proposals, which will be due early March 2018.

Registration and abstract submission is now open for both events. Please also feel free to sign up to the mailing list for further details.
