After welcoming the AMOS ohana back to the island for the inaugural hybrid AMOS Conference in 2021, we are looking ahead to the 23rd AMOS and second ever hybrid program. We continue to monitor pandemic conditions and will be reassessing the situation on a regular basis. The 2022 AMOS Conference is being planned as an in-person event with virtual attendance options.

The AMOS Conference kicks off with a number of Technical Short Courses in various SSA-related disciplines, preceding three days of plenary programming. Each day of the plenary program opens with a Keynote Address and SSA Policy Forum discussion followed by Technical Presentations covering a range of broad topical areas relating to Space Situational/Domain Awareness. Invited Talks and Featured Presentations are incorporated throughout the multi-day program, with poster sessions and networking opportunities culminating the AMOS Conference experience.

2022 Program at a Glance

The three-day plenary program will be livestreamed in its entirety to the virtual conference platform, with on-demand playback available in 24-48 hours. Posters are available in digital format this year and are accompanied by on-demand presentation videos. A select number of posters are invited for in-person presentation during the evening poster sessions.

All registered attendees are encouraged to visit the virtual Exhibit Hall and Digital Poster Hall to review materials and interact with sponsors and poster presenters.
