International conference "Human space exploration" organized by Roscosmos  under the auspices of the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) and with the support of JSC "RSC "Energia"  S. P. Korolev" and Korolev city administration.

The conference is timed to the celebration of the 55th anniversary of the first manned flight into space and will be held in preparation for the next Summit of heads of space agencies organized by the MAA. The Academy in conjunction with the Russian space Agency has decided to hold this event in Russia, in outer science city Korolev, where was born the history of cosmonautics.

Since 2010, IAA has organized and conducted three similar Summits , serving as a platform for "equal dialogue" on the prospects of space exploration. At the sites of these world forums space recognized leaders and beginners in this field to discuss current problems of cosmonautics. The fourth Summit of heads of space agencies is scheduled for early 2017, devoted to the topic of manned space exploration and unmanned space systems.

Recommendations of conference participants will be the basis for the conclusions of the international Academy of Astronautics, which will be presented at the level of heads of space agencies.

Plenary Session
Plenary Session is to commemorate 55-th anniversary of Yu. Gagarin’s space mission, as well as 15 years of International Space Station’s (ISS) first crew long-term mission. The Plenary planned for May 24, 2016, is supposed to gather administrative personnel and employees of world space agencies, managers and experts of space industry, engineers and scientists. Multiple topics to be covered include not only speeches, which mark the most important steps in space exploration by humans, but also pragmatic issues, such as changes which occurred in the ISS within past years, influence of circumstances on the Earth on cooperation in space, etc. The participants will try to provide their overview of the ISS outcome for the humankind. Cosmonauts and astronauts will share their memories about unforgettable moments in LEO. Engineers will reveal their future exploration plans for the Moon, Mars, other planets.
