NEW FOR 2018

Publication in the 2018 Journal of Astronautical Sciences

The Journal of the Astronautical Sciences is an archival publication devoted to the sciences and technology of astronautics. Articles are published which present significant new results, important insights, or state of the art surveys in all areas of astrodynamics, celestial mechanics, atmospheric flight mechanics, navigation and guidance, and space related sciences. Authors are encouraged to submit papers on attitude dynamics, orbit determination, trajectory optimization, space mission analysis, numerical methods, maneuvering flight vehicles, dynamics and control of large flexible space structures, and space sciences related to new astronautical systems and their applications.  

Authors who elected at the time of abstract submission to have their technical paper be considered for peer-review journal publication will be contacted after the Conference with further details. To be considered for publication, technical papers and copyright agreements must be uploaded to the submission system by the August 31 Technical Paper and Copyright Deadline.

Speaker Details

Mahalo to the authors who have submitted an abstract. Over 200 abstracts were received for consideration this year.

The program committee has scheduled both oral and poster sessions. The abstracts of both oral and poster papers are published in the same manner in the conference materials. Please check the conference schedule for your presentation date and time. Note that the schedule is subject to change.

  • Submission of a final Technical Paper and Copyright Agreement prior to the deadline of August 31**. A paper is required for all oral and poster presenters. No paper and clearance means no poster or podium.

Oral Presenters

Due to the overwhelming response of abstract submissions this year, we are accommodating more technical presentations by creating 15- and 20-minute time slots.  The technical committee and session chairs have determined the time slots for each session.  Please check the conference schedule for your presentation date and time.

Typically speakers that are allocated 15 minutes will have 12 minutes to present and 3 minutes for questions; 20 minute time slots will have 15 minutes to present and 5 minutes for questions.  We will have a large clock that will show you the time remaining for your presentation.

All speakers must check-in at the Audio Visual desk in the back of the room at least 20-30 minutes prior to the session.  We recommend that you test your briefing during scheduled breaks.  Please prepare your PowerPoint presentation in widescreen format (16:9). The conference presentations will run on a PC platform.


Upload Presentation by September 4

All presentations must be submitted by the September 4 Presentation Deadline using the online submission system. The Conference Committee reserves the right to cancel a presentation if not submitted in advance. Session co-chairs will have access to presentations assigned to their session to ensure the content presented aligns with the submitted abstract and paper.

  • Format: Your presentation must be in 16:9 (also known as widescreen) format. Accepted file types include PPT and PDF.
  • Content: Slides marked classified, proprietary, internal use only, etc. will not be accepted.
  • Video: You must notify info@amostech.com in advance of the September 4 Presentation Deadline if your presentation will include video. Video files must be .wmv or .mp4 format. YouTube or internet-hosted videos are not allowed. Marketing-centric/promotional videos will be rejected – video content must focus on the presented research and reported results.

 


Poster Presenters

Due to the overwhelming response of abstract submissions this year, we are accommodating more poster presentations by splitting the poster sessions into two smaller sets of posters. Each set of posters will be displayed for one day, allowing for targeted interactions with attendees since fewer posters than previous conference years will be present during each session. Please check the conference schedule for your assigned poster session date and time. Note that the schedule is subject to change.

We encourage authors to demonstrate technical accomplishments in using traditional illustrative posters and interactive demonstrations on author-provided laptops during the poster sessions.

Poster presenters are provided with an estimated 4’x4’ area of a poster board and placement is assigned at check-in. Posters must be displayed no later than 9:00 a.m. on their assigned day.  Velcro and push pins are available at the Registration Desk, and a plastic pouch for your business cards will be provided. Posters must remain displayed through the end of the poster session. Please do not remove your poster early.
