Abstract deadline Oct. 8; Symposium Feb. 15 – 17; Strasbourg, France
ISU has organized a three-day symposium as an interdisciplinary, international forum to help both the users and providers of space-related systems to move forward from the discussion of problems to the formation of solutions. This symposium will address the opportunities and possibilities offered by extending the operation of the International Space Station (ISS) to 2020. The proposed scope of the symposium includes not just the centralized theme of how to make best use of the extended ISS life, but also related issues of commercialization both in its resupply and operation, and perhaps in the establishment and operation of related Earth-orbit infrastructure. Contributions from the ‘Newspace’ sector, as well as from agencies, industries and academic institutions already involved in ISS construction and operation are anticipated. The program will include invited contributions from leading experts in the field, as well as presentations and poster selected on the basis of abstracts submitted in response to the Call for Papers.
Abstracts are now invited and must be submitted by Oct. 8th, 2010. For more information, please visit: http://www.isunet.edu/index.php?option=com_content&task=blogcategory&Itemid=146
