iCubeSat Program 2016
iCubeSat 2016 was held over two days at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom. Please note that this conference was an open conference and did not wish to discuss information restricted by ITAR or other export controls. U.S. citizens and permanent residents were responsible for ensuring that technical data presented was not restricted by ITAR and that ITAR controlled information was not discussed with non-U.S. citizens. All conference attendees ensured that their presentations and discussions complied with the relevant export controls of their own country, the United Kingdom and the European Union and those using the comments facility of the website are reminded that they should do the same.
