The Conference will be hosted by the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA). \nThe conference will include a hypothetical NEO/Earth impact event scenario that will be part of the conference (similar to what was done at the 2013\, 2015\, 2017 & 2019 conferences). Conference attendees may also use the hypothetical scenario as their topic for papers and presentations. \nAlthough this scenario is realistic in many ways\, it is completely fictional and does NOT describe an actual potential asteroid impact.

Since then the standard has been adopted by hundreds of organizations worldwide. CubeSat developers include not only universities and educational institutions\, but also private firms and government organizations. \nThe CubeSat standard facilitates frequent and affordable access to space with launch opportunities available on most launch vehicles. \nWithin the past three years the CubeSat Developer’s Workshop has grown immensely with over 600 attendees and 20 countries represented at the 2019 conference. Although the 2021 CubeSat Developer’s Workshop is expected to be held virtually\, it is projected to have greater participation than previous in-person years! The virtual format allows for greater accessibility\, which allows for increased global viewership.

Sky high. Or rather\, space high. High enough that it deserves its own conference! \nWith decades of development behind it\, and passing from its first phase—seven people have each paid millions of dollars to rocket to the International Space Station (ISS) as private space travelers with one flying twice—the space tourism industry has entered its next generation with private enterprise flights and a variety of other consumer offerings. \nThis next evolution of the market will yield major\, long-lasting advances—including lunar flybys. \nThe industry is rocketing toward stratospheric value\, with news breaking almost weekly from the major players driving the charge: \n\nJeff Bezos (Blue Origin) and Richard Branson (Virgin Galactic) plan to offer passenger flights soon.\nAxiom Space is developing the world’s first private space station.\nSpaceX and Boeing are testing manned capsules for orbital flight.\nSpace Adventures and now SpaceX are inaugurating passenger lunar flybys in a few years and SpaceX and Boeing will soon start manned missions to the International Space Station (ISS).\nNumerous international space tourism ventures are in the works and World View will fly passengers near the edge of space in their luxury gondola and huge balloon.\nBILLIONS of dollars’ worth of space and Mars/future-themed theme parks\, attractions\, resorts and shows are on the books.\n\nAnd now even NASA is getting into Space Tourism—yes\, space tourism. \nThe Space Tourism Conference (STC) is an annual event that will be produced with support from the Space Tourism Society (STS)\, the world’s leading space tourism advocacy organization for over 20 years. \nThe April 28 conference date was deliberately chosen as the anniversary of Dennis Tito’s lift-off into the history books in 2001 as the world’s first private space tourist. Tito’s flight jump-started the space tourism industry\, generating massive consumer awareness as to the possibilities of private space travel and commercialization of space through earth-based experiences.

We will look at a selection of satellite data exploitation platforms from around the world\, reflecting broader trends around internet infrastructure\, satellite data handling and processing\, and service delivery. This will be followed by a question and answer and discussion. \nSpeaker Biography\nThe evening will be led by George Dyke\, from Symbios Communications. George has worked in the space industry since 1999\, and since 2004 has worked as a consultant with the Sydney-based Symbios Communications. Symbios supports the international Earth observation community\, including via policy analysis and inputs\, community coordination\, market and technology studies. Projects include development and maintenance of the CEOS Database (\, and providing project support to the Open Data Cube ( Their domestic clients include CSIRO and Geoscience Australia\, and internationally they currently work with space agencies including ESA\, NASA\, JAXA\, USGS\, and ISRO on EO coordination activities. George\, Stephen Ward\, and Matt Steventon from Symbios look forward to the online discussion to follow the talk including around how to build the Australian space community and on opportunities to work together. \nEvent Agenda\n6PM-6:15PM – Facilitated Networking\n6:15PM-6:45PM – Speaker Talk\n6:45PM-7:30PM – Facilitated Networking URL: CATEGORIES:Australian Events ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png: END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20210503 DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20210506 DTSTAMP:20210511T221813 CREATED:20210111T020954Z LAST-MODIFIED:20210111T021022Z SUMMARY:SpaceOps 2021 - Virtual Edition DESCRIPTION:Since the inception of SpaceOps in 1990\, the organization has hosted thirteen biennial conferences by various countries around the world. In 2020\, South Africa was meant to host SpaceOps 2020 in the city of Cape Town. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic however\, a decision was taken to postpone the conference until things got back to normal. \nAfter many consultations and continuous monitoring of developments that currently affected the world as a result of the pandemic\, the Space Ops ExCom decided to continue with the conference in 2021 and go with the virtual format instead. Hosting SpaceOps 2021 – Virtual Edition is important for the industry as the conference offers industry peers and experts an opportunity to engage and share knowledge on advances and improvements in the Space Operations industry. \nSpaceOps 2021 – Virtual Edition\, will deliver quality and engaging content that relates to the Space Operations and the Space industry. It is exciting that the virtual conference will also provide an opportunity for more delegates to participate without traveling abroad and appreciate the diverse and interesting topics from the comfort of their homes and/or office spaces. \nAlthough the conference will be online\, the organizing committee is committed to giving you an unforgettable African experience without traveling to South Africa.

Currently planned activities and utilisation models also greatly exceed the scope\, ambition and/or commercial value of space missions in the previous century\, e.g.\, autonomous spacecraft\, space mining\, and understanding the universe. Achieving these ambitious goals requires surmounting non-trivial technical obstacles. AI4Space focuses on the role of AI\, particularly computer vision and machine learning\, in helping to solve those technical hurdles. The workshop will highlight the space capabilities that draw from and/or overlap significantly with vision and learning research\, outline the unique difficulties presented by space applications to vision and learning\, and discuss recent advances towards overcoming those obstacles. \nThe workshop will feature \n\nKeynotes from established AI4Space researchers; and\nPresentations of recent work on vision and learning with a space focus.\n\nNB the workshop date is yet to be confirmed\, but planned for June 2021. \nImportant Dates \n\n\nAll times/dates below are in Pacific Standard Time. \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nPaper Submission Deadline\n11:59pm 6 Mar 2021\n\n\nNotification to Authors\n13 Apr 2021.\n\n\nCamera-Ready Deadline\n20 Apr 2021\n\n\nWorkshop Date\nTBA URL: CATEGORIES:Australian Events ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
