On April 1, 2020, Deputy Director Mike Walter organized a virtual meeting that brought together scientists from Carnegie Science, the University of Maryland, and the Smithsonian to present the work they would have shared at the canceled Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC). During the day-long digital meeting, named LPSC-Z after the original, nine planetary scientists presented their talks to nearly 50 attendees on topics ranging from planetary disk formation to mantle melt chemistry.

Walter stated, "We thought our EPL scientists who spent so much time preparing for the annual LPSC meeting might like a chance to give their talks, so we organized a Zoom Webinar (LPSC-Z) and invited our friends and colleagues from the Smithsonian and University of Maryland to join in.” Walters continued, “What better way to give a talk and learn about our universe than from the comfort of your own home… and the coffee is much better!”
