Reinventing Space 2021 – Call for Abstracts announced – UPDATED CLOSING DATE

The BIS has opened the Call for Abstracts for its flagship conference, Reinventing Space 2021.  The call will close on 31st January 2021 15th February 2021.  The call for abstracts focuses on some key themes:

  1. Environmental and sustainability considerations in relation to space
  • Protecting our environment Papers are invited on issues relating to the impact of space exploitation, both in space and on Earth, and how we create the correct regulatory frameworks to both encourage new space exploitation opportunities, techniques and technologies, whilst also acting to protect localities, communities and the environment on Earth.
  • Space Debris How do we deal with the challenge of space debris, what new technologies can support clean up, and who pays to remove debris from space. Where does the responsibility lie?  How can we work to reduce debris?
  1. Economic recovery In the post Covid-19 era, how can the space industry support the economic bounce back –through the creation of new sectors within the space industry, new jobs, manufacturing and training opportunities.

Abstracts should be a summary of the paper, rather than an introduction, and must be limited to 500 words.  More information, and the submission form, is available at  Early submission is encouraged.

The conference will take place in London at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in Westminster, from 28th – 30th June 2021, and authors of successful submissions will be invited to present their paper on one of the three days.  Ticketing information and advice around accommodation will be made available early in the New Year.  If you are interested in sponsoring the Conference or exhibiting, please contact David Jeffries, our Sales Manager at our partners Only Media.
