This is an open workshop/symposium hosted by the British interplanetary Society in collaboration with Icarus Interstellar.

In late 2009 Project Icarus was launched to design a fusion powered interstellar space probe as a follow up to the renowned BIS Daedalus project. Three years later following much research and study the project team have held an internal design competition to create the first formal Project Icarus concept designs. At this workshop and symposium the team will introduce their work and designs with the intent to agree the best overall design and systems to move forward to the next design phase.

The main workshop will begin at 9:30 AM and end at 4:30 PM with an evening summary lecture starting at 6:30 PM. The day will be hosted by the Project Icarus Study Group.
