There is no limit to the number of abstracts that you may co-author. 

Main topics:

1. Humanities and social sciences in space

The humanities are understood to be the set of studies related to man as an intellectual and creative being. They constitute the essence of a liberal education, they make known the history of human progress. The term comes from the Latin Humanitas: humanity. On the other hand, social sciences are study disciplines focused on human behavior and, particularly, on how social and cultural processes are created or affected, in response to the activities of human beings and their relationship with society. These sessions seek contributions to the new era in space exploration from these two approaches, some examples (but not limited) are: Space law, entrepreneurship, public space policies, geopolitics, sociology, ethics in space issues, etc.


2. Astrophysics and Planetary Sciences


Traditionally, astrophysics is concerned with studying the formation and evolution of the universe, as well as the physical properties of the forms of matter present in the universe; that is, the composition, density, temperature, and other characteristics of stars, galaxies, interstellar and intergalactic media, etc. Within astrophysics, Earth and Planetary Sciences can also be considered, however, these are much broader as they are aimed at those interested in the study of the physical, chemical, and biological processes that shape the Earth and other planets. It is based on the disciplines of geology, geochemistry, hydrology, ecology, geophysics, oceanography, and atmospheric sciences. These sessions will also include topics such as space clime and astrobiology, as well as other related disciplines.

3. Space and Satellite Technology

All contributions that stand out for the application of technology for the conquest of space will enter here. This can be in-situ when talking about space missions, in-orbit when talking about satellites and orbiters, or ex-situ when talking about astronomical instrumentation and telecommunications.


4. Applications of space science and technology


Although it is important to know the new technologies that are going to emerge and how a world of space innovation is developing, it is also important to know the applications that this technology has had for human beings. In this session, contributions will be accepted that are related to using satellite data to solve terrestrial problems, some examples may be the use of GPS, Trackers, Satellite Tracking, Climate Modeling, Telecommunications, etc.

Four working groups shall be organized into debate tables to address highly relevant and critical issues within the space sector. These issues will foster a transdisciplinary standpoint that requires integral solutions and the collaboration of multiple fields of expertise.

  1. Space robotics

    As we venture into the new age of space exploration, Space robotics represents a transformative leap in our ability to explore and interact with the cosmos. These sophisticated machines, also empowered by Artificial Intelligence, capable of operating autonomously in the harsh environment of space, are at the forefront of scientific discovery and exploration.

    During the event, participants will share their ideas on deploying autonomous robots to extraterrestrial environments, such as planets, asteroids, and moons. Additionally, there will be a debate about space robotics in Mexico, encouraging participants to outline strategic directions for the nation’s effective development in this field. Furthermore, they will highlight the environmental implications of space robotics, prompting discussions and proposals aimed at mitigating these impacts.

  2. Rocketry

    This sophisticated field combines advanced engineering, propulsion systems, and computational technologies to create vehicles capable of traversing the challenging environment of space. Integral to scientific discovery, communication advancements, and potential interplanetary travel, space rocket technology is an attestation to human aspiration and collaborative innovation, continually pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in our quest to explore the universe.

    Participants will explore the main and current challenges facing space rocket technology, involving topics such as autonomous rockets, payload dynamics, propulsion systems, pollution, etc. The discussion will consider the path that Mexico should follow to begin the development of space rockets efficiently. Moreover, participants will learn about national rocket competitions, identifying national institutions and other stakeholders engaged in this field.

  3. Space entrepreneurship

    Space entrepreneurship encompasses the creation and management of businesses related to the exploration, utilization, and commercialization of outer space. This includes activities such as satellite launches for communication and Earth observation, exploration and mining of resources on celestial bodies, space tourism, as well as the development of advanced technologies for space applications. With the push of technological advancements and increased accessibility to space, this emerging field is being driven by a wide range of companies and governments, democratizing access to space and opening up new commercial and scientific opportunities.

    Participants will explore integral aspects of the increasing commercial activity in space. Relevant topics will be addressed regarding NewSpace, as well as the socioeconomic impact of space commercialization in developing countries. Participants will set some guidelines for a fair and sustainable regulatory framework that encourages innovation and protects the interests of all nations.

  4. Astrophysics and planetary sciences

    Astrophysics and planetary sciences study phenomena and space objects, from the structure and evolution of stars and galaxies to planets, moons, and other celestial bodies within and beyond our solar system. Astrophysics focuses on the fundamental laws of physics that govern the behavior of these objects. In contrast, planetary sciences are dedicated to exploring the intricacies of planets, including their origins, composition, atmospheres, and evolutionary paths. Both disciplines use a variety of observational, theoretical, and experimental techniques to advance our knowledge of the universe and our place in it, from the exploration of exoplanets to the study of astrophysical processes in stars and dark matter.

    Participants will identify key topics within this area of expertise, engaging in discussions about the most significant challenges in the current context.

  5. Space Security and Conflict Prevention

    Participants will engage in an in-depth examination of the complexities involved in preserving security and peace in the progressively crowded and competitive environment. They will analyze threats to space security, including militarization and competition for space resources; strategies for conflict prevention through the promotion of international cooperation; and the role of international organizations and treaties in regulating space activities. Participants will come up with proposals to strengthen the international legal framework and promote a safe and cooperative space environment.

EXTENSION OF Eventbrite Registration Deadline: June 15th, 2024

Hosting Program Application Deadline: Jun 7th, 2024

Please keep in mind that there will be no payment deadline extensions

  • Regular oral presentations
    As well as dissertation oral presentations are generally arranged by topic. For a regular oral presentation, allow 10 minutes for the talk. For the question and answer session, the “Slido” app will be used. After 4 or 5 consecutive presentations, the authors of those oral talks will meet to answer questions and answers for 10 minutes. The questions will be sent through the app and will be read by a moderator to the presenters. 

    • All oral presentations will be live.
    • When preparing your presentation, we suggest a maximum of six slides for a ten-minute talk. Slides should be uncluttered and easy to read.
    • Presenters are encouraged to practice a few times so the presentation fits comfortably into the ten-minute slot. If the presentation does not finish within the indicated time, it will be considered finished as far as it is and the next presentation will continue.
  • Posters presentations
    For the poster sessions, delegates may go during any free time, coffee break, lunchtime, or a presentation that is not of interest to them. The posters will be hanging throughout the event and the coffee breaks will take place simultaneously at the presentation venue. In this way, the delegates will be able to ask as many questions as they want from the posters that have caught their attention the most. To attract more audiences to the posters, poster participants will be asked to make a 1-2 minute video in which they invite them to watch their presentations. These flash talks will be made available to delegates before the congress workshop so they can select the posters they most want to see. Posters allow far more time and flexibility. Posters are ideal for using charts, graphs, or detailed visual aids. The poster area serves as the meeting’s social center.

    • Posters will be presented in traditional printed poster format in the conference hall during poster session highlight hours
    • Virtual posters will be uploaded as a PDF to our virtual poster site.
    • All poster presenters will be given opportunities to interface and communicate in real-time during coffee break/poster session time.
    • Your poster must fit within the 44″ x 44″ area.
    • Poster abstracts are sorted by the Scientific Organizing Committee.
    • At the time designed for poster session, authors should be present at their poster during that time.
    • Your abstract can be selected by our Delegates team to be published on the NASA ADS and other indexed journals (As conference series).
