Sponsored by Europlanet

This workshop is sponsored by the EC-funded EUROPLANET  2020 RI, a Research infrastructure which includes a Networking activity for Science.

Purpose of the meeting and format

The workshop will include a combination of  eight keynote talks about moon-magnetosphere
interactions and one about moon space environments at Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune
combined with contributed oral papers covering these subjects through data analysis,
simulations and theory.
This workshop can serve as a starting point of a new series of moon-magnetosphere
workshops in the future to maximize the science output of past missions like CASSINI, GALILEO, VOYAGER, PIONEER and to support current and future missions like HISAKI, JUNO, JUICE, EUROPA CLIPPER, etc.
