IAF Abstract Mentor Programme


The International Astronautical Federation has implemented an Abstract Mentor Programme (AMP): an extra support for authors with limited or no experience of submitting an abstract for the International Astronautical Congress.

The programme especially targets students and researchers from resource-limited settings, who lack access to opportunities for rigorous mentoring in research and writing and for whom online distance education is proven to cost-effectively build research capacity. We especially encourage submitters from developing countries to take advantage of this unique opportunity.

The goal of the mentor programme is to help authors present their material clearly and concisely, before their abstracts are submitted for the formal abstract review process.

The deadline to submit your draft abstract for the AMP is 19 February 2019, 23:59 CET. Each menteee can make a maximum of 1 submission. Mentees must use the Mentee Application Form and send it to amp@iafastro.org. Once reviewed by the mentor, mentees must submit their final abstract at www.iafastro.net by 28 February, 23:59 CET.

If you have any questions, please contact us at amp@iafastro.org
