About

WPSE 2018 is an opportunity for scientists and engineers to showcase their recent findings in the field of planetary science and exploration. The event highlights the achievements of women and non-binary researchers, while offering an opportunity to discuss, challenge, network, and support their peers.

Supporting #WomenInSTEM is the prime goal of this event.

Taking place in the vibrant City of Toronto, attendees of WPSE 2018 will see a dynamic city which offers great food and attractions. The event will take place at the University of Toronto in the Bahen Centre for Information Technology.

WPSE 2018 will be our inaugural year for the conference. We hope that this event becomes a yearly occurrence.

We encourage geologists, geophysicists, engineers, biologists, chemists, physicists, astronomers, and any other people of all genders working or researching in a related field to apply. Of particular interest would be students studying space law, space exploration history, or commercial aspects of space exploration.
