Draft ASDC Program announced
The National Space Society of Australia has released a draft program for the 11th Australian Space Development Conference to be held in Adelaide on the 5th to the 7th of July. This year, the ASDC will also host a parallel technical conference by the Engineers Australia’s National Committee on Space Engineering called the “National Space Engineering Symposium”.
The ASDC conference Plenary Sessions include:
• Australian Space On The Move
• Capacity Building: The Role of Government
• Australia's Dependence on Space Services: A Report Card
• New Directions In Space: Challenges and Opportunities for Australia
• Charting the Future Direction
• "Lost in Space": 18 Months On
It is clear that the ASDC conference is expanding quite heavily this year, linked to the recent uptake in the Australian Space Sector. There are four parallel tracks, with a wide range of topics that are directly relevant to the Australian Space Industry.
If you are interested in the Australian Space Industry, I can highly recommend attending this conference, as it is the premier event on the Australian Space calendar. The draft program can be found here.
