SYMPOSIUM  DATES  AND  LOCATION


A new three-days International Symposium on the future of Space Exploration will be organized by the International Academy of Astronautics and Politecnico di Torino. The symposium will be held in Torino, on 3 – 5 July 2013.

SYMPOSIUM GOALS

The goals of this new symposium on the human and robotic exploration beyond the Moon are more ambitious than ever. Thanks to a renewed commitment of the International Academy of Astronautics, the areas of interest have been widened and a larger attendance is expected. To allow all authors to present their papers at ease, the possibility of presenting some papers in parallel sessions is considered.
The aim is to promote an exchange of ideas and experiences among those interested in the various scientific, technological, human and ethical aspects of outer solar system and interstellar exploration and to propose new missions.
Papers regarding the motivations and human aspects of deep space exploration are welcome, and papers dealing with advanced concepts and new ideas are encouraged.
Results from this symposium will be presented to the next Heads of Space Agencies Summit organized by the IAA in 2013/2014.

INDUSTRIAL PARTICIPATIONS


Industrial participants are solicited in view of the short term benefits of the technologies developed for deep space exploration

SUPPORT TO PARTICIPANTS

The International Academy of Astronautics will provide a number of scholarships, covering mainly registration fees and luncheons for participants and speakers who have financial difficulties in attending such as for instance attendees from African countries.



Study Groups of the IAA related to the conference themes are encourage to present and discuss the status of their activities.
