Meeting Location and Date The Venus Modeling Workshop will be held May 9–11, 2017, at the Ohio Aerospace Institute, adjoining NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio. This meeting has been assigned NCTS# 28839-17 in the NASA Conference Tracking System. Purpose and Scope The objectives of this three-day workshop are to discuss (1) the status of modeling of Venus’ exosphere, atmosphere, surface, and interior; and (2) the factors that are currently limiting the ability of investigators to advance models and how modeling efforts can benefit from and guide experimental studies and future mission activities. Workshop topics and discussion will be guided by the VEXAG Goals and Objectives, Pathways, and Technology Plan documents. A portion of the workshop will focus on providing modeling need inputs for the potential Venera-D international mission. Venus science, mission, and technology communities are invited but participation is especially encouraged for researchers who employ numerical, computational, or analytical methods to study Venus or comparative bodies, and combinations of empirical and modeling approaches.
