Call for Abstracts

  • Opening day
  • Submission deadline

The SPINE workshop is a European forum addressing all topics related to spacecraft plasma interactions.

This year, the workshop will fit within the COMET-CNES Atmospheric and Space Environment community ( We therefore encourage contributions in the following areas:

  • 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

As usual the forum is fully open and contributions addressing the full range of topics (see below a non-exhaustive complementary list) are welcome!

  • 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)
  • High power radiofrequency effects such Multipactor and Corona.
  • Simulation tools performances, current and future developments, interoperability between tools

Feel also free to contact us if you want to propose a session or discussion topic not listed above!
