Conference: Space Technology and Tele-Reach, Strasbourg 5-7 March 2013


Here’s one from our friends at the International Space University:

The International Space University’s 17th Annual International Symposium:




                                                                                                   ISU Campus, Strasbourg, 5 – 7 March, 2013


Each year, the International Space University (ISU) organizes a three day symposium addressing a topical theme from an interdisciplinary and international perspective. These symposia attract an audience of around 200 members of the space sector from agencies, industry and academia worldwide.

Our forthcoming symposium, the seventeenth in a series, will address ‘Tele-reach’ a term we use to refer to technologies and applications which allow remote presence, participation, interaction or control.

The emphasis here is placed on exploring the role that space can play in broadening and sustaining the ‘reach’ of information and communication systems to benefit human-kind in areas such as education, healthcare and environmental management. Looking beyond the socioeconomic benefits here on Earth we also widen the scope to include fields such as tele-presence and tele-operation of remote equipment both on Earth and in space.

We are expecting a large number of leading experts and decision-makers from space agencies, governments, international organizations, industry and academia to present and interact within ISU’s unique spirit, expanding our knowledge and offering extensive networking opportunities.
