and icy worlds large (e.g. Titan) and small (e.g. Enceladus), rings
and icy dwarf planets. The session will include
solicited, contributed, and poster presentations addressing
observational, laboratory, and theoretical studies relevant to past,
ongoing, and future missions. Relevant topics include:
(1) interior structure, composition and thermal evolution,
(2) surface geology and composition,
(3) composition and dynamics of neutral atmospheres
(4) orbital dynamics and satellite interactions,
(5) structure and dynamics of planetary rings,
(6) physical properties of ring particles and small satellites of
outer planet satellites.
