This Joint Discussion is held to share the latest knowledge on the small solar system bodies and also the possible parent bodies of meteors, meteorites & interplanetary dusts from as wide a perspective as possible. The latest results are expected to come from international campaigns of ground-based observations (2011 Draconids meteor shower, fireball network etc.), space missions to comets & asteroids (HAYABUSA, DAWN, EPOXI, Post-Stardust, Rosetta etc.) and meteorite falls & recoveries (2008 TC8 etc.). Together with dynamical studies, these new results will shed light on physical & chemical relationships amongst such small bodies. The intensive discussion will create effective strategies for future cooperative work not only in meteor and meteorite studies but also in related fields. The meteor showers meteorite falls, and comet appearance recorded in this oriental region over centuries will also be revisited by modern researches. This JD also aims to engage the general public who has potential to contribute greatly to this field with an emphasis on the important role of CBAT. A special talk will be dedicated to the late Brian Marsden, who served as a leader of CBAT for a considerable time.
