Topics

You are invited to prepare abstracts 300 - 500 words in length for papers covering
the following topics:

  • Performance and technology drivers for space applications of novel materials,
    including composites, ceramics and optical materials
  • Space environment interactions (atomic oxygen, UV and particle radiation,
    micrometeoroids/debris, contamination, vacuum, thermal cycling, synergistic
    effects)
  • Modeling the interaction of materials with the natural and induced environment.
    This includes also degradation due to contamination
  • New methods and procedures for ground tests to characterize space
    environmental effects on materials
  • Standards related to the evaluation of space materials
  • In-flight experiments and lessons learned from the exploitation of in-orbit data
  • New materials, processes and technologies including material aspects of
    micro/nano-technology and materials problems related to miniaturisation
  • Materials and processes that are technology/mission enabling, in particular for
    extreme environments
  • Qualification of new materials, coatings and processes
  • Impact of standards and regulations, such as REACH

To submit your abstract, please use the online abstract submission form on the Call for Papers page.
