The Technical Program is based upon academic papers selected through the paper submission and review process.

In this matter, the Technical Program Committee is responsible for ensuring a well-balanced, high-quality conference program. The committee handles all issues related to paper submission, review and selection and the establishment of the final conference program.

Conference topics:

  • Space propulsion systems (includes solid, liquid and hybrid rocket engines and motors, space electric propulsion, component and system level)
  • Green propellants (includes development, handling, testing and utilisation of environmentally friendly propellants)
  • Suborbital vehicles and payloads (suborbital demontrators, vehicles, microgravity research, atmosphere sounding)
  • Launch vehicles (launcher components and systems development and utilisation, micro-launchers concepts)
  • Rocket, launcher and spacecraft avionics (rocket and spacecraft TT&C systems, power systems, GNC, on-board computers)
  • Numerical modeling (rocket and spacecraft dynamics, aerothermodynamics, numerical tools)
  • Small satellites (small satellites platforms, subsystems and components, constellations)
  • AIV and test facilities (rocket engines and motors test stands, assembly, integration and verification infrastructure for rockets and spacecraft, test ranges)
  • Other related topics (other topics related to space propulsion design, development or applications)
