Planning Solar System Observations with JWST - ESTEC venue

Science Meeting
December 13 - 15, 2017
Noordwijk, Netherlands ESTEC

This 2.5-day 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 are expected to be due in February 2018.

This workshop is very similar to the one held in November 2017 at STScI in the USA. The number of participants to the ESTEC workshop will be limited to 60.
