The Planetary Crater Consortium (PCC) formed in 2010 from the merger of the Mars Crater Consortium (MCC), Lunar Crater Consortium (LCC), and Outer Solar System Crater Consortium (OSSCC). The PCC is open to planetary scientists interested in any aspect of impact cratering on solar system bodies (planets, dwarf planets, moons, asteroids, and/or comets), including observational, theoretical, experimental, and numerical modeling studies.

Some of the participants at the 7th PCC meeting, Aug. 17-19, 2016, Brown University, Providence, RI.
