Welcome to the 2014 Interplanetary Small Satellite Conference
28-29 April 2014
California Institute of Technology
This year's Interplanetary Small Satellite Conference conference will take place at the California Institute of Technology on 28-29 April, 2014. As in years past, this conference is organized by students, alumni, and staff from Caltech, MIT, Cornell, the University of Michigan, and JPL. We look forward to welcoming the community back to Pasadena to explore mission concepts, discuss emerging technologies, and foster “outside the box” thinking that will be critical to future interplanetary small satellite missions. Please stay tuned to this site for updates over the coming weeks and months! In the meantime, see the Call for Papers here.
- Due to the high number of requests for a deadline extension and some confusion on approval by NASA centers, we have extended the ISSC 2014 deadline until March 9, 2014. Please submit your abstracts prior to this date. Visit this page to submit yours.
- Conference registration is now open. Click here to register. The registration fees will increase on March 10 (from $40 to $50 for students and $150 to $175 for professionals), so please register here ASAP to reserve your spot.
- Information for exhibitors and sponsors is available here.
- Reduced-price registration ($20 for students, $75 for Professionals) is available for one-day attendance (28 or 29 April, 2014).
We are pleased to announce that this year's keynote speaker will be Dr. Jakob van Zyl, Associate Director of Project Formulation and Strategy and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Dr. van Zyl is an expert in planetary exploration and remote sensing, with a distinguished career spanning four decades. We are privileged and grateful to have him at the conference to offer his perspective on trends and challenges in planetary exploration.
