BUILDING A SAFE, SECURE, AND SUSTAINABLE SPACE (IAASS), Oct 8-10, 2024, Prague

The International Association for the Advancement of Space Safety (IAASS) will hold its 13th space safety conference from October 8-10, 2024 in Prague, the Czech Republic.

The theme is “Building a Safe, Secure, and Sustainable Space.”

More information is on the event’s website, which says:

The 13th IAASS Conference “Building a Safe, Secure, and Sustainable”, is an invitation to reflect and exchange information on a number of space safety, security, and sustainability topics of national and international interest. The conference is also a forum to nurture mutual understanding, trust, and the widest possible international cooperation in the peaceful, responsible, and shared use of space. The once exclusive “club” of nations with autonomous space access capabilities is becoming crowded with a growing and diverse number of players. Commercial spaceports are an ever-growing reality. In the human spaceflight arena, a commercial market has become a reality with government and private use of commercial services for cargo and crew transportation to orbit and beyond. Space bound systems and aviation traffic are more and more sharing a crowded airspace, while aviation is increasingly relying on space-based safety-critical services. Finally, most nations own nowadays space assets, mainly satellites of various kinds and purpose, which are constantly under potential non-voluntary and voluntary threats. The complex problem of identifying and mitigating cyber threats to space systems requires a comprehensive, integrated, and systematic approach to protect space assets and critical services. Awareness is increasing internationally, as solemnly declared since decades in space treaties, that space is a mankind asset and that we all have the duty of caring for it. Without proactive and courageous international initiatives to establish an international regulatory framework for space governance we risk negating access and reliable use of space to future generations.
