Les Abattoirs


You are invited to attend the 6th European Lunar Symposium at the Les Abattoirs, Toulouse, France. This will be a 3-day workshop (14-16 May, 2018) with pre-registration reception on the evening of the 13th May 2018.

This meeting will build upon the success of previous European Lunar Symposiums (ELS) held in Berlin (2012), London (2014), Frascati (2015), Amsterdam (2016) and Munster (2017). The sixth ELS will be held under the umbrella of the European nodes of the Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI).

A global surge in lunar exploration has thrust lunar science and exploration back into the limelight once again. Current interests in the exploration of the Moon range from astronomical, astrophysical, geological, commercial, resource utilization, and strategic considerations, to its use as an outpost for future human exploration of the Solar System. One of the main aims of this meeting is to bring together the European scientific community interested in various aspects of lunar exploration. In addition, lunar experts from countries engaged in launching lunar missions are also invited to attend this meeting.
