June 17-19 | Sheraton Laval Hotel, QC
ASTRO 2019 is the 19th astronautics conference of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute. CASI ASTRO conferences are renowned for offering unparalleled opportunities to delegates from industry, academia, defence and security, and government to meet and network with space sector colleagues from Canada and around the world.
The theme of ASTRO’19 is ‘Space for Business’. The conference will focus on Canadian capabilities especially with regard to the growing number of small- and medium-sized enterprises. The conference will seek to identify prospects for growth domestically and in the international space arena.
An exciting program will feature invited Canadian and international speakers. Attendees will hear presentations by senior representatives of Canadian industry and academic organizations and Canadian government officials, as well as international space sector representatives. Speakers will explore ways that Canadian organizations can achieve their goals and participate more fully in the international space marketplace, detailing specific opportunities open to Canadian enterprises.
Three parallel tracks will be offered, as well as a robust Interactive (Poster) session.
The language of ASTRO’19 is English. Please note that no translation services will be provided.
A stand-alone Interactive (Poster) session will be held during which delegates will have the opportunity for one-on-one discussions with the authors of the presentations. The Interactive session will take place in the same area as the Exhibition. Interactive presentations will be an important feature of ASTRO’19 and will be given special attention.
The J. Saber Award will be presented for the best oral or interactive presentation by any author, and the Best Student Paper Award will recognize the best oral or interactive presentation by a student.
