International Astronautical Congress 2018
Welcome to the 69th International Astronautical Congress 2018
1-5 October 2018, Bremen, Germany
It is with great pleasure that the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) invites you to the 69th annual International Astronautical Congress (IAC). #IAC2018, hosted by ZARM will take place in Bremen, Germany from 1 – 5 October 2018. An intense week during which all space players will gather to discuss the advancement and progress of space in its various features; in particular, this year will be targeting secure access to satellites that provide communications, timing and navigation services and remote sensing data.
IAC 2018 will involve everyone offering a rich programme of Plenaries, Highlight Lectures, Technical lectures as well as a Global Networking Forum and many social events abundant in networking opportunities.
The theme of IAC 2018, #InvolvingEveryone, aligns with IAF’s motto “Connecting @ll space people”. We believe it is crucial for the future of the space industry that we learn to successfully work together across borders, challenge norms and embrace diversity. Why did we choose #InvolvingEveryone as the theme of the IAC 2018 in Bremen? This means cross-cultural thinking, passing the frontiers of mind sets and unlocking the potential of the young generation. The success of Germany’s space landscape and particularly the landscape in Bremen is based on this idea of diversity. #InvolvingEveryone theme is a necessary and timely one.
