Scope Small solar system bodies, including asteroids, comets, satellites,
inter-planetary dust particles, and planetesimals, are important objects:
their current state is interesting, and they provide lots of information on
the origin and evolution of our solar system for us. In this session, a
variety of papers on small solar system bodies are presented. Studies based
on various kinds of approaches such as space missions, measurements,
laboratory experiments, numerical simulations, and theoretical works are
discussed. Through those discussions, our understanding of the solar system
formation and evolution should be progressed. In 2016, the Mars satellite
sample return mission is paid special attention, though all the topics on
the small solar system bodies are welcome.
