Maui Economic Development Board is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 25th annual AMOS (Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies) Conference scheduled to take place September 17-20, 2024.

Recognized as the preeminent scientific conference in the field of space situational/domain awareness (SSA/SDA), the AMOS Conference is attended by over 1,000 scientists, engineers and space experts from around the globe and across industry, government, military, and academic sectors.

The four-day event features technical short courses and more than 150 presentations in the fields of telescope optics, imaging, satellite tracking, astrodynamics and machine learning. The conference also features high-level presentations and panel discussions by key stakeholders in space policy.

AMOS 2024 is proceeding as an in-person event with virtual attendance options. All presenters must present in-person. Select poster presentations may be designated as pre-recorded virtual-only presentations in order to accommodate a greater technical body of work for the SSA/SDA community.  

The AMOS Program Committee reviews all submissions from the annual Call for Papers and selects those that best meet the scientific and technical standards of the conference. We encourage submissions from international, undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a STEM degree at an accredited college or university. International and student participants receive a reduced conference fee.
