›4th Space Technologies Dnepropetrovsk
The Fourth International Conference on Space Technologies: the Present and Future will take place in Dniepropetrovsk under the auspices of the International Academy of Astronautics.
The conference established a good reputation in the domestic and international scientific community. It is conducted biannually on a regular basis since 2007. In April 2011, scientists from 15 world countries participated in the third conference, and more than 100 presentations were submitted to plenary meeting and working sections.
The international space conference in Dniepropetrovsk is a good opportunity to discuss new trends in space rocket technologies, advanced development, new insight into global space problems and unifying international concepts of their solution.
