The MESSENGER-BepiColombo meeting on "From MESSENGER to BepiColombo – science goals revisited?" continues the tradition of joint science meetings between the MESSENGER and BepiColombo teams. Held at DLR in Berlin Germany from 16-18 June 2015 the joint science meeting will be focused on three major themes.

  1. Origin, structure, and bulk composition of Mercury
  2. Evolution of Mercury's crust and mantle
  3. Origin, structure, and dynamics of the Environment around Mercury

The meeting is being organized to facilitate extensive discussion and interdisciplinary interactions among the participants. There will be a mix of invited and contributed talks and posters, panel discussions, and ample time for in depth and impromptu discussion.
