Justin Trammell

Cape Town, South Africa—

Every year, the International Astronautical Federation, together with the International Academy of Astronautics and the International Institute of Space Law (IISL), holds the International Astronautical Congress (IAC). The IAC is an annual meeting of professionals in space disciplines who participate in plenary sessions, lectures and meetings. There is also a large exhibition.

Attendies include agency heads and senior executives of government space agencies and corporations, academic researchers, students and young professionals.

SICSA faculty member Olga Bannova and grad student Justin Trammell participated in the 62nd International Astronautical Congress technical program and presented papers that are now available in Publications & Reports. Professor Bannova serves as a Vice-Chair of the IAA Commission VI that coordinated IAC's 23rd Symposium on Space Activity and Society.
