Caesars Forum in Las Vegas (not to be confused with Caesars Palace) is the center of the 2023 ASCEND universe.

The 2024 ASCEND will take place in Las Vegas in July 30 - August 1. The Technical program invites abstracts focused on advances spanning the art and science of space technology, exploration, economics, and more! The expansive scope of subjects are represented through the Paper Topics below, which will each host focused technical paper presentations and co-host multidisciplinary joint paper presentations.

Of particular interest are abstracts that clearly connect to ASCEND’s theme of “Building Our Off-World Future”.
