The Mars Exploration Program Analysis Group (MEPAG) has received 27 abstracts for presentations at the MEPAG Meeting 36 forum. The forum will be held the first day of the MEPAG meeting on April 3-5, 2018; and the abstracts are now available online at:

Presentations and discussions resulting from the forum will be summarized on day 2 of the MEPAG meeting, and will feed into preparation for the next Planetary Science Decadal Survey.

The Planetary Science Decadal Survey is a report produced by NASA and the National Science Foundation (NSF) that reviews the state of planetary science research in the United States. The document is used to develop strategies to ensure continued advances in the field over the following decade.
