The annual Oxford Meeting on Planets aims to bring together the local planetary science community and to foster collaboration and interdisciplinary discussions. Thematically, contributions spanning the entire range of planetary sciences are most welcome. This year's workshop will feature a mixture of invited + contributed talks together with an extended poster session. Submissions from early-career researchers and students are highly encouraged.

Posters sizes

The poster boards are 37.5 inches tall and 48 wide. Of this, approximately 35.5 x 46” is displayable space. Due to the design of the boards they can only be assembled in this orientation. A0 is 33.1 x 46.8 in and so would be slightly oversized for these boards. The most straightforward solution to avoid custom sizing would thus be A1 landscape.


The registration deadline on 15 November has passed.

Please contact the organisers via email if you would like to participate.
