Workshop on Juno Prime Mission Results
June 20-24, 2022
Payment will be possible on-site.
Caltech, June 20-24, 2022
This workshop covers part of the wide-ranging science goals of the Juno mission; other aspects will be covered separately at later meetings. It is motivated by the Prime mission, but with the recognition that there are unanswered questions, some of which may be addressed in the extended mission, currently ongoing, but many will be outstanding and in need of more work, initiated or motivated by our meeting. This is a workshop, which means it is not a long sequence of presentations about current models and interpretations. It focuses instead on discussion groups devoted to outstanding questions. Participants are not merely presenters or spectators but are expected to contribute to that discussion through questions and suggested solutions or directions for future progress. As a consequence, remote participation is unlikely to work well and is discouraged.
There will be the opportunity to provide a poster and make a very brief advertisement for that poster, but the main structure will be three introductory overviews in plenary (in Sharp, a large lecture hall), followed by discussion groups in nearby classrooms, augmented by reassembly in plenary to present and discuss the outcome of the discussions.
Most of these discussions will be interdisciplinary. As examples:
There will also be more focused discussions such as:
Discussions may often be of order two hours in duration, but sometimes less. Importantly, the workshop is deliberately flexible, meaning that important issues or concerns can be responded to in real time by changing other topics or schedules.
Refreshments and lunch will be available at cost and one evening dinner will be planned. We plan to begin on Monday morning (6/20), make Wednesday afternoon free, and finish early Friday afternoon (6/24).
Suggestions for nearby hotels/motels (at a significant but walkable distance) will be provided. Visitor parking will be available at a modest cost. In this period, Caltech will be in summer session (no lecture classes) but will have a significant number of undergraduate researchers on campus (as usual) as well as the usual graduate population and researchers.
Warm sunny weather is likely but not guaranteed.
The "coffee breaks" listed below also include hot water for tea and cold water. On the Monday, this will be minimal because it will be supplied by us and not be Caltech catering.
NB. Parking within walking distance (for free!) is probably possible on Monday only. Other days: parking buildings on Wilson and next to gym.
