International collaborations are becoming an important aspect of successful planetary and space science projects. In today's research environment, scientists and engineers from all over the world must work increasingly together in a variety of research projects, including ground-based observations, laboratory experiments, data analyses, archival studies, and numerical experiments. For future advancements in planetary and space sciences, it is important to consider the role of international collaboration, and facilitate interactions among researchers at all career levels from countries all over the world. However, international collaboration comes with its own set of challenges. In this session, we invite presentations discussing recent achievements and current status of various international projects to highlight the unique challenges involved in these international endeavors. This session will primarily consist of invited presentations; however, contributed presentations will also be accepted.
