CALL FOR PAPERS
While the human exploration of the Moon and Mars has been extensively examined, serious technical consideration of the rest of the solar system has been largely ignored. This symposium is designed to explore the limits of where human exploration can go in the solar system and how to overcome the challenges involved. The symposium is open to papers on the transportation requirements, the practicalities of habitation in extreme environments and any other aspects of a solar system wide civilisation. Submissions should be on the basis that there will be a completed paper delivered before the symposium as well as giving a presentation on the day. All papers will be considered for publication in the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society.
Proposed papers should be described in an abstract of no more than 400 words, and submitted to the Society at – [email protected].
Submission deadline: 31st July 2019.
