iCubeSat 2020 is now iCubeSat 2021!

Due to the ongoing pandemic related global travel restrictions and to maximise the possibility of the community being able to meet face to face, iCubeSat 2020 will now become iCubeSat 2021 and be held on the 1st and 2nd June 2021. We hope that we will be able to hold the meeting in person, but in the event that travel is still difficult we will hold the meeting either as a hybrid or all online event. Registration is open and the abstract submission date is the normal 1st April. We very much look forward to welcoming you to the 9th Interplanetary CubeSat Workshop in Beijing and/or cyberspace – please do not hesitate to contact committee@iCubeSat.org if you have any questions.

The new provisional workshop dates are Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th November 2020 with abstract submission and other deadlines extended by six months. Please note that these new dates are provisional at the moment and we advise against making any travel arrangements at this time in case they have to change again.

We will continue to monitor the situation and post updates on the workshop website (www.iCubeSat.org) and hope to be able to confirm and finalise the workshop dates by summer. Please do not hesitate to contact committee@iCubeSat.org if you have any questions.

iCubeSat 2020, the 9th Interplanetary CubeSat Workshop, will address the opportunities, technical challenges, and practicalities of space exploration with CubeSats. The workshop provides a unique environment for open wide ranging practical collaboration between academic researchers, industry professionals, policy makers and students developing this new and rapidly growing field.

Technical Program

Talks and round tables will focus on three themes: technology, science, and open collaboration. The program will also include unconference sessions to provide additional opportunities to engage with the interplanetary CubeSat community and potential collaborators. Talks and supporting material will be streamed and archived on the conference website. A lively social program in and around Beijing will be arranged for participants and their guests.

Abstract Submission and Dates

Talks on astrodynamics, attitude control and determination systems, citizen science, citizen space exploration, communications, landers, launch opportunities, open source approaches, outreach, payloads, policy, power systems, propulsion, reentry systems, ride-shares, science missions, software, standardization, structures, systems engineering and other related topics are all welcome.
