COOMOT International workshop on Co-orbital Motion: modeling, understanding and exploitation
28-29-30 March 2022

The 1:1 mean motion resonance, or co-orbital motion, is a perfect paradigm of dynamical regime that draws the attention of scientists belonging to different communities. In the celestial mechanics and astrodynamics field, mathematicians, planetary scientists and aerospace engineers study this specific three-body configuration to get a deeper understanding of the three-body problem, to model the motion of natural bodies and eventually observe them, and to design spacecraft trajectories for exploration missions (e.g., distant retrograde orbits or orbits associated with the Lagrangian points L3, L4 and L5).
The aim of the workshop is to bring together the three scientific commnunities to share their knowledge and experience on the co-orbital motion as regards to mathematical tools, results and possible applications.


Invited Talks

Four presentations have been scheduled


Different Countries



Call for contributions

COOMOT encourages the researchers to send an abstract on the following topics:

  • theoretical modeling and mathematical proof
  • natural bodies (asteroids and dust, moons, planets) motion modeling and simulation
  • natural bodies observation
  • trajectory design (actual missions or concepts exploiting co-orbital motion or targeting co-orbital bodies).
Abstracts are submitted from Register and Submit section where instructions and templates are available.
