You would not be alone in being disappointed at that. I have my own conspiracy theories, of
course, but I guess the intent/pretext was to make the meeting more 'process-oriented'
(though if that were really the case, then why the heck do they have a 'Mars Fluvial'
session instead of a 'Fluvial' session.....?
I agree, I think the intention is to make the meeting process-oriented.
Bah, Ralph, conspiratorize away
(hey that's a perfectly cromulent word). I suspect that they are trying to get people to stay for the entire week, rather than just the days the Titan, or Galilean satellite, or other sessions will be run. For Mars and the Moon, because there are SOOOO many
(people clearly not prioritizing research right, otherwise there would be Umbriel sessions every day of the conference) , they don't have this problem.
