The 38th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference will be held at the
South Shore Resort and Conference Center in League City, Texas, March
12-16, 2007. This conference brings together international specialists
in petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, geology, and astronomy to
present the latest results of research in planetary science.

You are encouraged to submit ideas and suggestions for plenary or
special sessions to Mary Cloud <cloud_at_lpi.usra.edu> by October
10, 2006, so they can be considered, planned, and publicized. Organizers
of these sessions should be prepared to serve on the Program Committee,
or to have a fully empowered delegate serve on the Program Committee, if
requested by the Conference Chairs. Authors of invited talks for special
sessions must meet the same deadline for abstracts as authors of
contributed papers (see below). Organizers who wish to have invited
talks represented in the conference abstract publication should make the
invited speakers aware of the deadline restrictions when inviting their

Participants may indicate a preference for oral, poster, or print-only
presentation. The Program Committee will make all decisions on the mode
of presentation to ensure a balance of as many important new research
results as possible. Selection criteria will be based on the relevance
of the subject matter to the conference and the quality of the science.
The 5-day conference will be organized by topical symposia and
problem-oriented sessions.

To allow sufficient time and personnel to prepare for the program
committee meeting, we will have TWO separate deadlines for electronic
submission of abstracts. The deadline for electronically submitting
abstracts in PDF format will be 5:00 p.m. (CST) Tuesday, January 9,
2007. Authors who are unable to produce PDF files must submit their
abstracts electronically by 5:00 p.m. (CST) Wednesday, January 3, 2007.

Non-PDF submissions that arrive after January 3, 2007, will NOT be
considered for the conference.

Detailed information regarding abstract preparation and submission will
be available via the meeting Web page and will be included in the second
announcement, to be posted on the conference Web site by the middle of

Abstract deadline:
   5:00 p.m. CST,
   Tuesday, January 9, 2007

There is a limit of TWO abstracts per first author for oral or poster
presentation requests. If you submit two abstracts for oral
presentation, you will be asked to rank them in order of preference.

Print-only abstracts will be allowed, but ONLY from those authors who
are NOT submitting an abstract for oral or poster presentation. In other
words, if you're requesting a print-only abstract, you cannot submit an
abstract for any other type of presentation. Authors are limited to ONE
print-only request.

The program committee will strictly enforce the above policies.
Abstracts submitted in violation of these policies will be rejected. The
only exception will be for those who are invited to give a talk at a
special session (e.g., the Masursky Lecture, or a special topical
session). Those abstracts will not be counted against authors as one of
the two abstracts they are allowed to submit.

More detailed information will be available in future announcements
posted on this Web site (see schedule below). To aid in planning
purposes, we strongly urge you to submit an electronic Indication of
Intent form
<http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meetings/lpsc2007/lpsc2007.iofi.cfm> by
November 14, 2006. The information on this form will not only provide
invaluable information for the meeting organizers as they plan
logistical strategies for the conference, but will also subscribe you to
an e-mail notification list to receive late-breaking news and
information about the conference. Please make sure to include a valid
e-mail address.
