We are pleased to announce a third workshop on "Titan Through Time" in 2014 at the Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, MD, following the success of the previous workshops in 2010 and 2012 at nearby Goddard Space Flight Center. The third meeting will have a similar format, with a 2 1/2 day science program comprised of themed sessions, and featuring a mixture of invited reviews, and contributed talks and posters. The program of the last workshop is available at http://pirlwww.lpl.arizona.edu/~hurfordt/ttt/program.html.
As in previous years, we welcome scientific reports and attendance from the widest possible cross-section of the scientific community, including both those studying Titan directly, but also those whose research interests have intersections with Titan science in areas such as laboratory chemistry and spectroscopy; modeling of planetary atmospheres, surfaces and interiors; terrestrial analogs and comparative planetology; and the formation and evolution of the solar system.
Notice: To maximize participation in the present regime of agency and institutional travel policies, we are aiming to avoid charging a registration fee. APL has generously agreed to provide coffee and other meeting support. Although a broad discussion of Titan science is intended, the meeting contributes directly to enhancing the science return of the ongoing Cassini mission and thus institutionally may be considered ‘programmatic’ if that facilitates your attendance.
Abstracts and registration are required by February 2nd,2014! We will aim to determine the program not later than (but likely before) February 21st, to allow time for you to schedule travel etc.
Additional information on speakers, the conference venue, and accommodations are available on this website and will be updated regularly.
Registration is required since the meeting venue has limited capacity. On the other hand, we expect that persons of all nationalities will be able to attend.
Hope to see you in April,

Associated Journal Special Issue: A special issue of Springer’s Open-Access (publication fee) journal Planetary Science devoted to papers presented at or inspired by the meeting will be edited by Prof. Jason Barnes of U. Idaho.
