Putting Astronauts in Impossible Locations

Date: 27th November 2019
Venue: BIS, 27/29 South Lambeth Road, Vauxhall, London, SW8 1SZ

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.

Sino-Russian (prev Soviet/Chinese) Technical Forum 2019

Sino-Russian (prev Soviet/Chinese) Technical Forum 2019

£20.00

The BIS Online Shop » Events & Symposia » Sino-Russian (prev Soviet/Chinese) Technical Forum 2019

Date: 1-2 June 2019

During the weekend of 1st and 2nd, June 2019 the BIS will be holding its annual Sino-Russian Technical Forum at the Society's Headquarters in London. This Forum has been running for an amazing 39 years (previously under the title Soviet/Chinese).

The Sino-Russian Technical Forum is one of the most popular and longest running events in the Society’s history and has hosted some star guests over the years. We are proud to say that we have sufficient material for a two-day programme this year and we 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. 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. 

Please note that we can cater for other dietary requirements (such as gluten-free) if you let us know in the notes field in the shopping basket (or email [email protected] / call the office on 0207 735 3160).

All speakers and delegates are welcome to join us for an informal dinner on the Saturday evening, venue TBD but will be local in Vauxhall. This dinner will be self-funded, so you need only let us know whether you definitely want to join us, so that we can give an accurate headcount for the booking. (Please add a comment in the notes field in the shopping basket). It's possible the pub will want to take pre-orders and we will email you if that turns out to be the case.
