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.

Here in this session, we discuss recent recent achievements and current status of various international projects and also we confirm roles of international organizations which are mostly scientifically-oriented.
