2011 International Forum on Planetary Sciences
and Explorations Concluded with Great Success
Proposed by Acad. Zhao Wenjin, Member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE) and Research Fellow of the Chinese Academy of Geological Scieces (CAGS), the 2011 International Forum on Planetary Sciences and Explorations was held in Beijing on October 18-20, 2011, under the co-sponsorship of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), the Ministry of Land and Resources of P. R. China (MLR), the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC).
The forum was attended by more than 200 participants coming from over 50 universities and institutes of China, the United States, France and Japan, such as CAE, MLR, CAS, CASC, Ministry of Education of P. R. China (MOE), National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation, CAGS, Macau University of Science and Technology, Chinese University of Geosciences, Peking University, Tsinghua University, Nanjing University, Jilin University, Fudan University, Washington University in St. Louis, Cornell University, Smithsonian Institution Washington DC, Arizona State University, Institure de Physique du Globe de Paris, and Institute of Space and Astronautical Sciences JAXA.
28 oral presentations were delivered by overseas and domestic experts (see the following list) and discussions were made among the delegates on the 4 topics of planetary sciences and missions, moon sciences and missions, Mars sciences and missions, and Mars sciences and instruments for planetary explorations.
The forum has provided a platform for exchanging and discussing views on and results of planetary explorations among the planetary scientists, and is of benefit to the Chinese planetary scientists in learning from the international colleagues. The successful convening of forum owes a great deal to the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences (CAGS) which has made tremendous efforts in preparing and organizing the event.
