The surfaces of terrestrial planets and their satellites have been largely shaped through volcanic and tectonic processes. Extreme conditions on outer solar system bodies, such as the Jovian and Saturnian satellites, result in different types of volcanism and tectonism. Fracturing and faulting processes mainly affect minor bodies such as asteroids and small moons, where volcanism and tectonism have not played an important role. We invite contributions that cover a wide range of topics including geomorphology and composition of volcanic deposits, edifices, plumes, volcano-induced deformation and edifice growth and collapse to tectonic structures, faulting and fracturing processes, crustal stress and strain analysis, cryovolcanism, and any study related to planetary endogenic processes.

The organizers welcome studies that relay interactions between planetary interiors, surfaces, and atmospheres. Comparative studies of volcanic or tectonic systems on Earth with a strong remote sensing component are encouraged.
