The 3rd International Asteroid Impact Deflection Assessment (AIDA) Workshop, a Technical Interchange Meeting, will be held 20-22 June 2017 at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) in Laurel, MD USA. The conference facility will be Building 200, E100.

AIDA is a technology demonstration of asteroid deflection by a kinetic impactor. It is an international cooperation composed of two missions, the NASA DART (Double Asteroid Redirection Test), which is the kinetic impactor, and the ESA AIM (Asteroid Impact Mission). The combination of DART and AIM is AIDA.

The first AIDA international workshop took place at JHU/APL in October, 2014, and the second AIDA workshop was held at the Hôtel Saint-Paul in Nice, France in June, 2016.

The 3rd AIDA International Workshop will have technical and program updates for DART and AIM, and it will discuss AIDA planetary defense and science topics, including:

Predictions of momentum transfer by kinetic impactor; determinations of momentum transfer from Earth-based remote sensing and from in situ observations at the target [65803] Didymos; kinetic impact simulations; Didymos physical properties and dynamical system, with changes induced by kinetic impact; impact ejecta dynamical fates and evolution; science proximity observations at Didymos.
