30th SPINE Workshop Registration

Opened Jul 18, 2023
Closed Nov 17, 2023

30th Spacecraft Plasma Interaction Network in Europe (SPINE) meeting

This SPINE workshop is an open forum on new research and technological results, needs and plans in the area of spacecraft plasma interactions.

Contributions will be welcome in all topics of interest for the European spacecraft/plasma community at large.

For the 30th edition we are especially encouraging contributions relevant to the following topics :

Platform effects on Plasma measurements onboard Scientific missions (JUICE, Bepi Colombo, Solar Orbiter, etc…)
Dust charging effects and interactions with systems in the context of lunar exploration and e.g. Deep Space Gateway
Electrical propulsion and plumes interaction with spacecraft, modelling and experiments, flight data analysis
High Performance computing and application to numerical codes for spacecraft - plasma interactions
Evolution of Internal Charging analyses and models, real time approaches

Contributions addressing all other aspects such as :

Evolution of surface and internal charging environments and standards
Material properties (measurements, new materials, etc ..)
Ground and space based experiments for surface and internal charging
Electric propulsion driven plasma environments, electrical orbit raising
Innovative numerical methods and approaches for surface and internal charging applications
Charging of Cubesats, Nanosats, effects on (miniaturised) instrumentation
Plasma (instrumentation and spacecraft electrostatic cleanliness)
Simulation tools performances, current and future developments, interoperability between tools

are also welcome. Only oral abstracts can be submitted. Whilst all abstracts will be considered, preference will be given to abstracts which are European-led or with a strong European component.
