are kindly invited to participate in a session of the AGU 2012 Fall Meeting
Polarimetry as an invaluable tool to study
the Solar System and beyond
(session P22 in Planetary Science)
The Meeting will be held on 3 - 7 December, 2012, in San Francisco, CA, USA.
meeting website is http://fallmeeting.agu.org/2012/
registration and housing is open on July 12, 2012.
abstract submission website is http://agu-fm12.abstractcentral.com/
, the submission deadline is August 8, 2012
Polarimetry is a powerful tool providing a wealth of
information about astronomical objects that cannot be obtained by traditional
photometric/spectroscopic observations. Recent applications include
characterization of solar system objects (sun, planetary atmospheres, moon,
comets, asteroids, satellites, ring systems, asteroids, dust)
to the detection of exoplanets and identification of
biological markers. This session is open to papers about recent spectropolarimetric observations of solar system bodies,
theoretical or experimental investigations,instrumental
developments for spectropolarimeters to be included
in ground-based facilities or onboard future space missions, exoplanets and circumstellar

Call for Papers:
Special Issue of Earth, Planets and Space
(EPS): Cosmic Dust V
This issue of EPS will be primarily
devoted to the 5th meeting on Cosmic Dust held at CPS (Center for Planetary
Science), Kobe, Japan between August 6-10, 2012, by containing the papers
presented at this particular meeting. Nevertheless, it is also open to
submission of any other papers, following the regular EPS submission
procedures, provided that the contributions discuss some aspect of cosmic dust.
All kinds of cosmic dust such as
intergalactic dust, interstellar dust, protoplanetary
disk dust, debris disk dust, cometary dust, asteroidal dust, interplanetary dust, circumplanetary
dust, stellar nebular condensates, presolar grains,
micrometeorites, meteoroids, meteors, regolith particles are the subject of
discussion. Papers on other dust related topics, for example, the formation of
molecules and their reactions on and their desorption
from the surface of dust particles, are also welcome.
All submitted papers go through a peer
review process, wherein experts review, recommend, or reject the papers for
publishing. Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be
currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Papers must be
submitted online through the Editorial Manager for Earth, Planets and Space at http://www.editorialmanager.com/eps/
For details, please visit the EPS
and click on Guidelines for Authors.
The deadline for manuscript
submissions is 31 October 2012.
The cover letter should mention
Submitted to the Special Issue: Cosmic Dust V. After papers are accepted, the
authors will receive instructions for the final manuscript from the editorial
office. This special issue will hopefully be published in July 2013.
For more information on this special
issue, please contact the corresponding editor
