“GLAC provides the ideal platform from which to review new and groundbreaking satellite-based applications in a holistic framework. The Conference will bring together the global satellite-based services stakeholder community, including senior representatives of the major space agencies, industry, governments, academia and NGOs.

These leaders in the field will converge in Paris to present results, exchange ideas, debate road-maps, and discuss the future opportunities provided by satellite-based applications.

The comprehensive programme will include high-level round tables and technical sessions that will address the most recent achievements in satellite-based applications and explore how industry, politics, and law will help shape the future environment for this exciting domain of astronautics.”
