The 3rd AIDA International Workshop will be held June 20-22, 2017 at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) in Laurel, Maryland. The AIDA project is a technology demonstration of asteroid deflection by a kinetic impactor. It is an international cooperation composed of two missions, the NASADART (Double Asteroid Redirection Test), which is the kinetic impactor, and the ESAAIM (Asteroid Impact Mission). The combination of DART and AIM is AIDA. The first AIDA international workshop took place in October, 2014, and the second AIDA workshop was held in June, 2016.
The 3rd AIDA International Workshop will discuss planetary defense and science topics: Predictions of momentum transfer by kinetic impactor; determinations of momentum transfer from Earth-based remote sensing and from in situ observations at the target  Didymos; kinetic impact simulations; Didymos physical properties and dynamical system, with changes induced by kinetic impact; impact ejecta dynamical fates and evolution; science proximity observations at Didymos.
