The Titan Through Time Workshop V will be held at the LASP Space Science Building, University of Colorado East Campus Research Park, in Boulder, Colorado August 10-12, 2021. This is a continuation of a highly successful workshop series on Titan fundamental science begun in 2010 at GSFC, and continued in 2012 at GSFC and 2014 at JHU APL, and 2017 at GSFC. The 2021 meeting will be a hybrid event with both in-person and virtual attendance options.
The Titan Through Time Workshop has been an important venue for the Titan research community to exchange research results and ideas about the science of the Titan System. Although the Cassini mission has ended, there is still work to be done on the returned data, and the recently selected Dragonfly mission provides longer term opportunities for additional gains in our understanding. Aside from large space missions, Titan research continues to progress rapidly through ground-based astronomy, modeling and laboratory investigations.
In line with other similar events, our workshop policy is not to photograph, video record or post pictures from oral sessions to social media (twitter, facebook). However ‘live texting/tweeting’ in purely textual form is permitted. This is intended to strike a balance between disseminating results to a wider audience than are able to attend in person, but also to respect the prerogative of presenters to control the wider distribution of key figures, graphs and pictures/images that may not have been made fully public. At poster sessions, we ask that you request permission of authors/presenters before photographing or posting images of posters. At coffee, lunch and other times, please exercise reasonable judgement when taking and posting informal pictures of attendees to social media, respect privacy where need be, and ask for permission if unsure.
Meeting attendees will be expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner. NASA has strict policies governing standards of workplace behavior.
