The workshop "Titan Through Time 4" will be held at NASA GSFC during April 3-5th 2017. This is a continuation of a highly successful workshop series on Titan fundamental science begun in 2010 at GSFC, and continued in 2012 at GSFC and 2014 at JHU APL. This workshop aims to bring together a diverse spectrum of researchers working on all aspects of Titan science – Cassini scientists, laboratory investigators, ground-based observers and theoretical modelers – to focus interdisciplinary attention on solving the 'big questions' related to Titan's origin, evolution and fate:
The spring of 2017 provides an especially important window to consider Titan science, as the Cassini mission returns its last year of data, while other major facilities are beginning to focus attention on Titan, and future mission are being formulated through the New Frontiers program.

In line with other similar events, our workshop policy is not to photograph, video record or post pictures from oral sessions to social media (twitter, facebook). However ‘live texting/tweeting’ in purely textual form is permitted. This is intended to strike a balance between disseminating results to a wider audience than are able to attend in person, but also to respect the prerogative of presenters to control the wider distribution of key figures, graphs and pictures/images that may not have been made fully public.
At poster sessions, we ask that you request permission of authors/presenters before photographing or posting images of posters. At coffee, lunch and other times, please exercise reasonable judgement when taking and posting informal pictures of attendees to social media, respect privacy where need be, and ask for permission if unsure.
Meeting attendees will be expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner. NASA has strict policies governing standards of workplace behavior, and harassment of any kind is subject to referral to Goddard protective services division, and may result in disbarment from further attendance on center, or other actions. A good guide to appropriate standards of behavior at professional astronomy meetings is here:
