Sending space vehicles to other worlds is one of humankind’s most challenging and rewarding ventures. The 14th International Planetary Probe Workshop (IPPW-14) will again bring together engineers, technologists, scientists, mission designers, space agency leaders and students from around the world for a compelling, week-long collaboration focused on exploring solar system destinations through in situ missions. Our 14th workshop will continue to build upon the IPPW tradition by encouraging  international co-operation in planetary probe missions, the  development of  new and  emerging  technologies, and scientific discoveries.
IPPW-14 will be held at the Marriott Hotel in The Hague, The Netherlands. The programme will include invited talks, contributed presentations, posters  and opportunities for networking with colleagues. Preceding the workshop, on 10-11 June 2017, a Short Course on 'Ocean Worlds', will be offered.
