The 5th European Lunar Symposium was held at the University of Münster, Germany May 2-3, 2017. There was a total of 123 presentations made over two days (60 orals + 63 posters) along with a special talk by ESA Astronaut, Matthias Maurer. Over 150 participants, representing the global community of lunar scientists and explorers, made this a highly successful event. We would like to thank the local team at Münster and colleagues at NASA SSERVI for supporting this event. We hope everyone enjoyed their time in Münster and we look forward to welcoming you at the 6th ELS in Toulouse, France in May, 13-16, 2018!
