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.

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!
