The Commercial Space Operations Program and Applied Aviation Sciences Department of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s College of Aviation, are pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Space Traffic Management Conference “An Evolving Landscape”. The conference will be held 12 – 13 November 2015 at Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach Campus in Florida.

This year we will build upon the success of last year’s conference. Participants brought the roadmap into focus, identifying and prioritizing issues. This year’s objective is to explore the next steps for collaborative, responsible, sustainable coordination of space traffic with other modalities.

To this end, we again invite papers of 4,500 to 6,000 words in length. Abstracts may be up to 250 words and must indicate the precise title of the paper, the area of interest, the author’s full name and affiliation, and complete contact information including an email address. The language of the conference is English.

Event timetable:

Abstract deadline                                8 September 2015

Deadline for paper submission           30 September 2015

Deadline for presentations                  21 October 2015

Conference                                          12-13 November 2015

We encourage papers encompassing the STM topics listed below. We are particularly interested in research and papers examining the role of human factors in space traffic management, the role of industry and industry’s needs and wants regarding traffic integration and coordination, and international initiatives and concerns. Papers espousing legal and policy perspectives regarding any of the topics discussed in this paragraph and listed below are welcome.
