Explore SPACE Forum 2016

Your return on investment will be high. The multiple opportunities you have to advance your career personally by learning, to advance your career professionally by networking…is worth the price of admission.—Lt. Gen Larry D. James, USAF (Ret.), NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

AIAA SPACE 2016 combines the best aspects of technical conferences with insights from respected leaders, providing a single, integrated forum for navigating the key challenges and opportunities affecting the future direction of global space policy, capabilities, planning, research and development, funding, security, environmental issues, and international markets.

Industry, academia, and government leaders share their perspectives on the new challenges, future opportunities, and emerging trends in the global space industry. Plenary sessions examine some of the most critical issues in aerospace today. The Forum 360 panel discussions build on the themes and discussions of each day’s opening plenary session, adding a layer of content and context that enhances the value of your forum experience. These discussions also give you time to interact with industry leaders in more intimate settings, enabling meaningful communication, and stimulating greater insight into the critical issues of the day. An extensive technical program ensures that you’ll find the latest scientific and technical research that will advance your capabilities to improve or develop new space assets, find business solutions, and achieve your goals.
