The European Planetary Science Congress took place in Madrid, Spain from 23-28 September 2012. We were invited to present our work carried out at the Alpbach Summer School both as posters and as 15 minute presentations in a special lunchtime session that had been added at short notice.
We were questioned by a Mission Specialist from NASA’s JPL who was very interested in the summer school and kind enough to send positive comments back to the organisers afterwards.

We went on an excursion to the Centro De Astrobiologia, who gave us a fascinating tour round their modern facilities and gave us a demonstration of their machines to investigate crater formation. It was a great week and a wonderful opportuity to experience Europe’s top Planetary Science conference, just before starting my MSc.
