The Outer Planets Assessment Group (OPAG) is NASA’s community-based forum designed to provide science input for planning and prioritizing outer planet exploration activities for the next several decades. It is chartered by NASA’s Solar System Exploration Division and reports its findings at meetings of the Solar System Exploration Sub-Committee of the NASA Space Science Advisory Committee. Open to all interested scientists, OPAG regularly evaluates outer solar system exploration goals, objectives, investigations and required measurements on the basis of the widest possible community outreach.

The OPAG Summer 2017 Meeting takes place September 6–7, 2017 in La Jolla, CA, at the Samuel H. Scripps Auditorium, next to the largest ocean in the inner Solar System. The agenda includes updates on the Europa Clipper and Lander, Cassini, Juno, New Horizons, and the Roadmaps to Ocean Worlds study. A public talk about Ocean Worlds at Scripps will be presented by Dr. Britney Schmidt from Georgia Tech.
