They play a key role in the Federation’s internal affairs, including the provision of guidance, recommendations and related support to the IAF Bureau and the IAF General Assembly.

During the IAF Spring Meetings, the committees are in charge of selecting papers presented at the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) and thereby contribute to the definition of the IAC technical programme.
The International Programme Committee (IPC) implements the technical sessions at the annual International Astronautical Congress (IAC).
The IPC Steering Committee assists the IPC Co-Chairs in resolving issues and helps develop and render more effective the IAC technical programme.
