The coming years are going to be revolutionary for space exploration with research efforts leaning towards more and more complex mission concepts and designs, with an envisioned goal of human exploration on both the Moon and Mars in a few decades. Mars and the Moon, as well as other small bodies in the inner Solar System are favorable targets to answer key questions about the water transport and delivery in the Solar System, the origin and evolution of life and also the detection of extraterrestrial life. We would like to create a world where Japanese technology can open up new interdisciplinary science for tomorrow and even for decades from now.

The purpose of this workshop is to present the latest research results from both science and engineering that match impactful interdisciplinary science and enabling technologies that will lead to future new mission proposals. One of the other purposes of this workshop is to build a cross-sectoral team across universities and JAXA that will lead to mission proposals to help create our own exploration roadmap for the next few years or even future decades. We would also like to establish a forum for discussions on how to successfully build such new teams to facilitate the missions and system designs for this purpose. As a final output of this workshop, we aim to establish working groups for upcoming S-class or/and M-class mission proposals. We look forward to the active participation of young researchers and postdoctoral fellows who will be responsible for the planetary exploration missions in a few decades' time.
