SGAC-IAF Seminar at GLAC2018: Space Applications
May 21 @ 08:00 - 14:00
The inaugural SGAC-IAF Seminar: Space Applications is a half-day event for university students and young professionals in the South-American region which will be held on the 21 May 2018 in Montevideo, Uruguay.
The SGAC-IAF Seminar: Space Applications will be held in conjunction with the Global Space Application Conference 2018 (GLAC 2018) organised by the International Astronautical Federation on 21-23 May 2018 in Montevideo, Uruguay. The aim of the event is to engage with the Uruguay and South American students and young professionals and provide an opportunity for capacity building and policy input on space applications.
The event will be followed by a joint SGAC-IAF IDEA networking lunch.
The Global Space Applications Conference, GLAC 2018, to be held in Montevideo, Uruguay, will be the first time ever that IAF takes one of its Global Conferences to South America and also the first time that it organises an event in Uruguay.
GLAC 2018 is co-organised together with the Centro de Investigacion y Difuson Aeronautico-Espacial (CIDA-E), a member of the IAF since 1985 and one of ten IAF members from South America.
