37th BIS Soviet/Chinese Technical Forum 2017

Date: 3-4 June 2017


During the weekend of 3rd and 4th June 2017 the BIS will be holding its annual Soviet/Chinese Technical Forum at the Societies Headquarters in London. The Society is now accepting proposals for papers from former and new speakers to be included this year’s Forum.

The Soviet/Chinese Technical Forum is one of the most popular and longest running events in the Society’s history. This year will mark the 37th Forum since its inception in 1980 and will continue the tradition of featuring a wide ranging agenda. Details of the programme are being finalised but will feature presentations, films and debates on the history, current activities and future plans of both the Russian and Chinese space programmes.

Speakers are invited to provide a short biography and synopsis of their paper. Updates to the programme will be published over the coming months with a selection of papers from the Forum will be published in a special edition of Space Chronicle.

With a traditionally varied and exciting programme planned we encourage members to support the event, visit the heart of the BIS and take the opportunity to meet old friends and establish new contacts.

Speakers are asked to send details of their papers via the BIS (click here) to Dave Shayler, Coordinator of the 2017 Soviet/Chinese Forum.

Be sociable; support the BIS!
