In order to facilitate the maximal observing of ISON, we held a 2-day pre-encounter workshop at JHU/APL on 1-2 August 2013. The meeting's overarching goal was to maximize the scientific return from ISON's 2013 apparition, bringing together experts and interested parties from the cometary, planetary, heliophysics and amateur astronomy communities.

The schedule of speakers for the Workshop is available for download (small PDF). The conference was streamed live online, and the video archived for later viewing. The conference was separated into several sessions, with at least one archived video per session. We have embedded these videos on to the CIOC website and you can view the presentations from both Day 1 and Day 2 on the appropriate pages from the "Workshop" menu item at the top of the page.
