NASA announces its intent to participate in the 64th International Astronautical Congress, or IAC, and requests that full-time graduate students attending U.S. universities or colleges respond to this call for abstracts. The IAC, which is organized by the International Astronautical Federation, or IAF, the International Academy of Astronautics and the International Institute of Space Law, is the largest space-related conference worldwide and selects an average of 1,000 scientific papers every year.
The upcoming IAC will be held Sept. 23-27, 2013, in Beijing, China. NASA's participation in this event is an ongoing effort to continue to connect NASA with the international astronautical and space communities.
The IAC has posted a "Call for Abstracts," with a submission deadline of Feb. 21, 2013. NASA plans to also announce a "Call for Abstracts" inviting graduate students to submit abstracts (of no more than 400 words) to participate in the 64th International Astronautical Congress. Abstracts must be submitted to NASA and to the IAF. Details on the NASA "Call for Abstracts" will be distributed by mid-January, with the same submission deadline of Feb. 21, 2013. The selected NASA-sponsored students must also be selected by the IAF.
Please visit the IAC website (http://www.iac2013.org/) for additional information about the Congress and to obtain information about the "Call for Abstracts."
