Because this year’s Space Elevator Games have been moved back to sometime in mid-late October, the dates for the EuroSpaceward conference (Space Elevator and CNT Tether Design – 2nd International Conference) being held in Luxembourg has been moved back to December 6th and 7th.
You can access the conference program here (Bob Munck alert – this is a pdf file…).
The list of presentations and speakers is too extensive to go into here – see the conference program for more details. However, I can say it is very extensive and ambitious and should be a great event to attend. I, for one, plan on being there and I hope to see you there too!
26JUL08 Update – I just received this email from Markus Klettner, head of EuroSpaceward:
“Thanks for announcing EuroSpaceward’s conference on your blog yesterday! Almost all key note speakers have already confirmed their participation (e.g.: Prof. Charles Cockell, Open University UK, Prof. Vesselin Shanov, University of Cincinnati USA, Prof. Cécile Zakri, Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal France, Dr. Marcelo Motta, Cambridge University, Dr. David Raitt, ESA, and of course our highly appreciated US SE experts!). The only significant confirmation missing is the one from Andy Petro, NASA. I hope to be able to convince him to spend an exciting weekend in Luxembourg 🙂
p.s: I am still very sorry not to have been able to participate in SEC08 due to my inline skating accident, however plan to be back to the US for the games in October.”
We missed you in Redmond, Markus. Get well soon and we look forward to seeing you in December…
