SSERVI’s Science & Exploration Forum

The Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) is pleased to announce the 1st annual NASA Exploration Science Forum (ESF), to be held in person July 21-23, 2014 at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA. This year’s forum will feature scientific discussions of exploration targets of interest (the Moon, near-Earth asteroids, and the moons of Mars). Science sessions will focus on recent mission results and in-depth analyses of science and exploration studies. Dedicated side-conferences for graduate students and young professionals (a graduate student conference and Next Generation Lunar Scientists and Engineers, NGLSE) will coincide with the ESF. Public engagement discussions will be interwoven among science topics as well.

The 40th COSPAR Scientific Assembly

The 40th COSPAR Scientific Assembly will be held from 2–10 August 2014, in Moscow, to be organized by Lomonosov Moscow State University, one of the leaders in Russian educational system and the country’s oldest university.

Currently one of the most prominent scientific meetings in the world, COSPAR Scientific Assemblies were conceived to promote research in astrophysics, astronomy, space science, space biology and medicine, through free and impartial exchange of information and open discussions. Its contribution to international cooperation can hardly be overestimated, as well as its role for further enhancement of space education.

Moscow, the capital of Russian Federation, will be the host city for the 40th Scientific Assembly. Being, on one hand, one of the world global cities, it also treasures rich historic and cultural heritage, whose past goes back for more than 8 centuries. The spirit of the past as well as signs and conveniences of modern city make Moscow one of the most attractive place for visitors, especially in August, the most mild period of the year in the region. More than 60 museums, 100 theatres, and 700 Russian orthodox churches in the city, and even more are in its nearest suburbs, are the reasons why stay in Moscow is never boring.

We cordially invite everyone engaged in space research and exploration to participate in the 40th COSPAR Scientific Assembly and visit Moscow in summer 2014!

The 65th International Astronautical Congress 2014

The 65th International Astronautical Congress 2014, the world’s premier space event, will take place in Toronto, Canada from September 29 to October 3, 2014 at the award-winning Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The Congress theme “Our World Needs Space” will promote an exploration of the relationship between Earth and space and the ways that space activities help to meet our needs on Earth.

The Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI) is proud to host IAC 2014. CASI has had the priviledge of hosting two previous IACs, both to great acclaim: IAC 1991 in Montreal, and more recently IAC 2004 in Vancouver.

This unique global international collaborative platform brings together experts active in industry, government and academia, as well as many retirees and amateurs of space. IAC 2014 will provide an excellent opportunity for participants from around the world to network and present their latest accomplishments and future plans, identify opportunities for collaboration, and share their opinions on the widest possible array of topics.

IAC 2014 Chair Ron Holdway looks forward to welcoming YOU to Toronto for IAC 2014!
