And another interesting article from the same workshop: "THE ROLE OF ELECTROSTATIC DUST LOFTING IN SHAPING THE SURFACE PROPERTIES OF ASTEROIDS"

and this : "PLANS OF HAYABUSA2’s ONC IMAGE ARCHIVING AND PUBLIC RELEASE"

and a nice picture from this article : "Nature of Roughness of Ryugu Revealed by Thermal Simulation of High Resolution Digital Elevation Model". S. Tanaka et al. Asteroid Science 2019 (LPI Contrib. No. 2189):

Hayabusa2 began returning to Earth on November 13, at 10.05 JST

From JAXA twitter: "...In the end I decided to leave Ryugu. Departure tomorrow (November 13) at 10:05 (JST). The RCS thruster (chemical engine) is to start moving away from Ryugu at a speed of 10 cm / s....After leaving the gravity zone of Ryugu, we will continue preparations for the return to Earth by conducting a trial start of the ion engine..."

Interesting conclusions from new article in Icarus magazine - Naoyuki Hirata et al. The spatial distribution of impact craters on Ryugu. Icarus, 5 November 2019, 113527:

"...It seems that the variation in crater density indicates that the equatorial ridge located in the western hemisphere is relatively young, while that located in the eastern hemisphere is a fossil structure formed during the short rotational period in the distant past..."
