iCubeSat 2015 program online, additional seating available

April 16, 2015

The provisional program for iCubeSat 2015 is now online here and includes a record 45 presentations and posters spread over two full days. Our main lecture theatre is now full, but because of the large number of registration waiting list requests we’ve received, we’re going to set up a nearby room as an overflow lecture theatre. We’re going to set up a video link to the main theatre so you’ll be able to participate in the sessions fully, and of course you’ll have full access to the exhibition area, poster area and social events.

If you’d like to register for a space in this room, please sign up here and select one of the ‘Overflow theatre’ registration options. There is limited capacity in this room so we strongly advise signing up sooner rather than later if you wish to take advantage of this option and join us in London next month.

Abstract deadline fast approaching!

March 29, 2015

With attendees registered from companies, space agencies and universities from 20 countries, we’re looking forward to another exciting iCubeSat, the Interplanetary CubeSat Workshop. Abstracts are due 1st April 2015, so if you haven’t already submitted yours, please do so via iCubeSat.org/submit-an-abstract/

We are close to the capacity of our venue at Imperial College London, so please register today via iCubeSat.org/registration/ to ensure you have a place at the workshop as we will have to wait list registrations once we reach capacity. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email committee@iCubeSat.org – we look forward to seeing you in London in May!

iCubeSat 2015, the 4th Interplanetary CubeSat Workshop, will address the technical challenges, opportunities, and practicalities of interplanetary space exploration with CubeSats. The workshop provides a unique environment for open wide ranging practical collaboration between academic researchers, industry professionals, policy makers and students developing this new and rapidly growing field.

Technical Program

Talks and round tables will focus on three themes: technology, science, and open collaboration. The program will also include unconference sessions to provide additional opportunities to engage with the interplanetary CubeSat community and potential collaborators. Talks and supporting material will be streamed and archived on the conference website. A lively social program in and around summertime London will be arranged for participants and their guests.

T-1 day and counting…

May 26, 2014

It’s a beautiful sunny Memorial Day in Pasadena with an amazing blue sky and not a cloud to be seen as we get everything ready for iCubeSat 2014 tomorrow. The workshop is easy to find – just go in through the imposing front door of The Athenaeum from the car park (free to use for all iCubeSat 2014 attendees), turn right and you’re there. There’s a map of the campus here and lots of friendly people around if you get lost.

Registration will close at midnight tonight (Monday) and due to local rules and regulations it won’t be possible to register or pay on site, so you need to make sure that you have done both today to avoid disappointment. If you haven’t done so already, please upload your presentation and optional paper here so we can have everything setup and ready to go as soon as possible.

See you tomorrow from 12:30!
