General Information

ASTRO 2020 is the 20th Astronautics Conference of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute. This year ASTRO will be presented as a Virtual Series that delivers much of the content originally planned for the in-person ASTRO 2020 conference.

The Virtual Series will shine a spotlight on many of the areas of expertise in the Canadian space sector. Technical sessions will include up to six presentations, with questions and comments invited from the audience. Additional sessions will explore the space regulatory framework and space situational awareness, and a robust half-day Workshop will develop the topic of space domain awareness. More events are currently in the planning stage that will carry CASI’s Virtual Series through to the end of the year and beyond.

The number of attendees is limited to 100, so please register as early as possible to secure your seat!
