Join the IAC from anywhere in the world!

If you would like to present your work at the largest astronautical congress and/or if you can’t make it to the IAC venue this year, the Young Professionals Virtual Forum (YPVF) technical sessions are the answer.

With a computer & internet connection, you can present your paper at the IAC. You don’t have to register for the conference and it’s free to attend.

The YPVF sessions are held at IAC and are an integrated element of the IAC schedule.

Therefore, if you are able to join the IAC in Jerusalem, you can also present your work in the session room directly from the congress and have your presentation broadcasted in real-time around the world!
