Meteoroids form a fundamental and complex part of the Near Earth Space environment. The Meteoroids 2010 meeting will cover topics related to the origin, nature, evolution and dynamics of solar system minor bodies, with special emphasis on the study of micrometer- to meter-sized fragments of comets and asteroids. Oral and poster contributions are welcome along the themes and sessions outlined in the program (http://www.cora.nwra.com/Meteoroids2010/Agenda.html).

Abstract submissions are now being accepted. The deadline for submission is January 15th, 2010. Abstract length is one page with the option to include 1 figure and references. Abstracts must be submitted using the template provided in the meeting website (http://www.cora.nwra.com/Meteoroids2010/AbstractInformation.html). Submitted abstracts that do not follow the provided template outline may be subject to rejection.

Registration is now also open. The deadline for early registration is February 15, 2010. To register, please visit http://www.cora.nwra.com/Meteoroids2010/Payment.html. Reduced fees for students and amateur astronomers who are members of the International Meteor Organization are available.

Travel Grants are expected in a limited number, mostly assisting with lodging expenses. We particularly encourage applications from scientists in developing countries and young researchers with a demonstrated excellence in the field. Grant requests will be considered only for participants who will present an oral or poster paper, which will be decided by the SOC depending on scientific quality and merit of the abstract submitted by the January 15th, 2010 deadline. For more information please send an e-mail to meteoroids2010@cora.nwra.com.

Visa applicants from many countries must now apply at least 3 to 4 months in advance of their travel date. The U.S. Department of State maintains a comprehensive Web site containing information about traveling to the United States. The National Academies Web site has additional information about visa-related issues and travel information for U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens. A Letter of Invitation may be needed for those who are applying for a visa to attend the Meteoroids 2010 conference. To request a letter send an e-mail to meteoroids2010@cora.nwra.com.

We look forward seeing you in Colorado The LOC of Meteoroids 2010
