The importance of collisions in shaping our Solar System has been recognized many years ago. Since that time, increasingly sophisticated tools have been developed for tracing the collisional history of various small-body populations, and understanding the role of collisions in producing observed features. This includes collisions involving the main-belt asteroids, near-Earth objects, and, in recent times, space debris. The aim of the workshop is to review the-state-of-the-art of the research on related topics, and to discuss directions for the future development. The meeting is particularly designed to prepare young researchers to start working in the field and to develop real projects.
The workshop will take place over three days (February 11 – 13, 2015), and will be held in Belgrade, Serbia. It is organized within the Stardust ITN, but is open to all interested researchers. We particularly welcome young scientists – PhD students and postdocs who can contribute fresh ideas.
