The 2010 Annual Meeting of the Lunar Exploration Analysis Group will be held September 14–16, 2010, at the Holiday Inn Capitol, 550 C Street, SW, Washington DC. The hotel is conveniently located near the L’Enfant Plaza Metro (6th and Maryland Street exits) and within a short walking distance to NASA Headquarters.

The focus of the meeting will be using the Moon as a target for solar system exploration, science, commerce, education, and technology development.

The three-day meeting will promote community discussion and provide input to the questions to be addressed. As in previous years the meeting sessions will be populated through a combination of invited and contributed talks, and will be a blend of science, exploration, resources, and commercial activities.

Questions that will be addressed include:
* How can data from lunar missions be used to develop future concepts for lunar and solar system exploration?

* What are the recent breakthroughs in lunar science and how do they influence future lunar and solar system robotic missions?

* How can commercial partnerships be fostered in the robotic exploration of the Moon?

* What are the main technology developments needed to enable a sustainable lunar and solar system exploration program?

* How can the Moon be used as a target for solar system exploration, science, commerce, education, and technology development?
Oral sessions, which will be held in Columbia Ballroom I, will be composed of both invited and contributed talks. Contributed abstracts are highly encouraged and should be centered on the key questions.

Contributed abstracts will also form poster sessions scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, September 15 and 16.
