COOMOT2 International workshop on Co-orbital Motion: modeling, understanding and exploitation
18-19-20 March 2024

The co-orbital motion is a perfect paradigm of dynamical regime that draws the attention of scientists belonging to different communities. As a matter of fact, this orbital regime plays a key role in the 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 mathematicians, planetary scientists and aerospace engineers to share their knowledge and experience as regards to mathematical tools, results and possible applications.

The worshop will be held in hybrid format, in presence at the Institute for Applied Mathematics and Information Technologies of the National Research Council of Italy in Milan, and online.

A topical collection on the co-orbital motion will open on March 1st at the following link


Invited Talks

Four presentations have been scheduled


Different Countries



Call for contributions

COOMOT2 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
