dc.description.abstract This workshop brought together about 30 scientists from different fields interested in comet science and working in a variety fields to observe, simulate and model cometary phenomena. These fields range from meteoritics to astrophysics to organic chemistry. From these discussions it should be possible to identify the outstanding questions and how their solutions can be approached through laboratory experiment, theoretical modeling and new observations made from Earth.
