Representatives of several scientific communities, such as planetary scientists, astronomers, space physicists, chemists and astrobiologists have met with the aim to review the knowledge on four major themes: (1) the study of the formation and evolution processes of the outer planets and their satellites, beginning with the formation of compounds and planetesimals in the solar nebula, and the subsequent evolution of the interiors of the outer planets, (2) a comparative study of the atmospheres of the outer planets and Titan, (3) the study of the planetary magnetospheres and their interactions with the solar wind, and (4) the formation and properties of satellites and rings, including their interiors, surfaces, and their interaction with the solar wind and the magnetospheres of the outer planets. Beyond these topics, the implications for the prebiotic chemical evolution on Europa and Titan are reviewed. At the time of publication, the study of the outer planets is particularly motivated by the fact that the Saturn system is being investigated by the Cassini-Huygens mission.Comparative Studies of the Outer Planets prior to the Exploration of the Saturn System by Cassini-Huygens Therese Encrenaz ... Aurorae are observed at Uranus in radio emissions (Zarka and Kurth, 2005, this volume), but also in the infrared at 3 a€” 4 ... The main source of plasma is probably the moon Triton, which has a substantial ionosphere with peak ion densities near 50000 cm-3 ( Tyler et al., 1989). ... This fast plasma removal rate suggests convective, solar wind driven transport.
