First one is a Cassini-Huygens book and linked conferences, second is the Science magazine special issue on MRO:


Dear All, 

With the endorsement
of the Cassini Project we have embarked upon an effort to organize two symposia
and produce 2 books which will capture the overall efforts of the
Cassini-Huygens mission to the Saturn-Titan system. These books will be
published by Springer-Verlag in the second half of 2009. One of the symposia
linked to the “Titan after Cassini-Huygens” book will be held in Corpus Christi, Texas
in June 2008; and the other linked to the “Saturn after
Cassini-Huygens” book will be held at Imperial College London between
28th July – 1st August 2008. 

The primary purpose of the Imperial College
symposium will be to exchange ideas which will culminate in the publication of
the Springer-Verlag book on the Saturn system. Authors for all of the chapters
are in place and attendance of up to 400 international scientists are expected
at the meeting. The format will include invited talks on the various chapters
and poster sessions with summary plenary reporting for introducing new ideas
and material which will be incorporated into the final text. The meeting will
conclude with presentations and discussions regarding the status of future
plans by ESA and NASA to return to the Saturn system for further exploration.
Press conferences and public lectures linked to the results being presented
will take place during the week. Further details can be found at   www.saturnaftercassini.org
