We welcomed Hannah Kerner to the program to discuss the upcoming NewSpace 2015 Conference in Silicon Valley at the Doubletree Inn, San Jose, CA, from July 16-18, 2015. For more information, the conference agenda, registration and contact information, visit https://newspace.spacefrontier.org. During our one hour discussion, we talked about Hannah deciding to work this summer for Planet Labs rather than Google and why. We then talked about the first day keynotes including Pete Worden who just retired as the director of NASA Ames and NASA Administrator Charles Boden who will be at the conference for his talk. We then took a look at some of the panel discussions planned for the conference as this year’s NewSpace event consists of all panel discussions. While the conference agenda is filling up, Hannah did say there might still be room for panel speakers/participants so if one or two of the panels matches your expertise or area of interest and you would like to participate, send her or Curtis an email. You will find their email addresses on the conference contact page which is https://newspace.spacefrontier.org/contact. We also talked conference logistics, registration, hotel availability, and airport transportation from San Francisco airports to the conference hotel in San Jose. A listener asked about family and tourist activities in and around San Jose in case he decided to bring his spouse and children with him. Thus, we talked tourist attractions for a few minutes. Hannah also went over the lunch, networking, evening and gala details and registration as they are separate from the conference registration. Near the end of our discussion, I asked Hannah for her favorite panels. She told us her two favorites were the alternative launch panel on the first day and the Saturday panel, “The Users and Futures of Low Earth Orbit.” A listener asked about there being a business plan competition this year. Hannah said details would be announced soon and that it was being worked into the existing conference agenda. Listeners asked about the SFF annual Advocates meeting and Hannah gave us a teaser about several special announcements to be made at the conference including one that pertains to NewSpace 2016.

We welcomed Bruce Pittman back to the show to discuss the upcoming ISDC 2015 Conference to be held in Toronto, Canada from May 20-24, 2015.  During our one hour program, Bruce talked about ISDC events in general, then the Toronto location for this year’s conference and the conference location, the Hyatt Regency Toronto.  ISDC is a multi-track conference with workshops and an excellent exhibit hall.  For more information, registration, hotel bookings, visit the ISDC 2015 website, http://isdc2015.nss.org/wordpress.  From time to time during our discussion, Bruce mentioned a separate event needing separate registration, The Space Innovation Business Summit (http://isdc2015.nss.org/wordpress/the-space-innovation-business-summit).  Bruce also went over the list of the keynote speakers, all of which are listed on the ISDC 2015 website.  In fact, I strongly suggest you open the website and follow along with us during our discussion about the event.  Bruce also said there would be upwards of 300 students present from around the world as a result of the Space Settlement Contest.  Bruce highlighted both India and Romania for their student participation in the contest and ISDC 2015.  Listeners asked many conference questions including networking, Q&A sessions, and inquiring if there was both a propulsion track topic and a human factors track topic.  Toward the end of our discussion we took a call from Doug regarding EML2, depots, fuel, Mars transportation, etc.  If you are planning to attend, remember you need a passport to enter Canada. Reserve early for the hotel, the conference and your transportation.  ISDC is a terrific event. If you attend, I want to hear from you about it on The Space Show.

We welcomed Dr. Jeff Puschell and Tony Williams to our program to discuss this year’s AIAA Space 2014 Conference to be held in San Diego, CA from August 4-7, 2014.  For full conference information including registration and hotel information, visit http://www.aiaa-space.org.  During our one segment 64 minute program, our guests took us through important details, features, and benefits of this conference, plus conference registration and hotel information.  There are changes in this year’s conference as compared to earlier AIAA Space conference so listen carefully as we covered most of them in our discussion and with listener email questions.  Our guests pointed out that the theme for this year’s Space conference is “Connecting, Protecting, and Enhancing a Global Society.”  From there, we went through plenary speakers and sessions, speaker panels, and selective tracks, all of which have been organized to support the conference theme.  You can follow along with our keynote, speaker panels, and tracks from the website.  To do so, use the Table of Contents options in the Explore Space Forum 2014 section at the top of the conference home page.  Some of the listener questions included asking for an explanation of the AIAA conference peer review process for submitting and getting papers approved, the networking reception and opportunities, the Exhibit Hall, this year’s Pickering Lecture and the AIAA rule “no paper no podium.”  Questions were asked about topics other than technical and engineering.  Our guests pointed out the policy and legal track which addresses these issues.  We also talked about tracks focusing on entrepreneurism, Earth monitoring, global security, NewSpace and much more.  Our guests explained how this conference represents the new trend with AIAA as several other conferences have been merged with this one.  One item to note is that the conference hotel block rooms are sold out so if you are attending, you will need to select from nearby hotels within the area of the San Diego Convention Center.   The Early Bird registration expires July 28.

Please post comments/questions on TSS Blog.  For specific information about the conference, contact AIAA per the contact page or Christopher Horton, Project Manager, 703.264.7561, chris@aiaa.org.

We welcomed back Dr. Sandra Magnus, AIAA Executive Director, for a one hour discussion about the upcoming AIAA SciTech Conference 2014 to be held the week of Jan. 13, 2014 at the Gaylord Hotel in National Harbor, MD.  For more information, visit the AIAA conference website,
http://www.aiaa.org/scitech2014.  Dr. Magnus started the discussion by going over the new AIAA Forum structure for their meetings and conferences.  This Forum structure allows them to combine several smaller conferences held throughout the year into one larger conference.  In fact, when you visit the AIAA conference website, you will see all the conferences combined in the Science and Technology conference next week.  We talked about AIAA conferences being multi-track and Dr. Magnus defined the different AIAA forums for us.  Regarding the upcoming SciTech conference, we talked about student and youth programs at the conference, speed mentoring and the mix between public and private companies and organizations.  We learned that the poster sessions are now planned as electronic sessions, and our guest went over not only the keynote speakers but the special lecture programs that are part of the SciTech Conference.  Cybersecurity was highlighted in our discussion and we spent some time talking about cybersecurity and how it has grown in garnering attention over the years.  A listener wanted to know about business and investment panels.  Dr. Magnus talked about one such panel on Tuesday addressing “Turning Technology Into a Business.”  Doug called in to provide a personal testimonial to AIAA given his recent experiences at AIAA Space Conferences in Pasadena and San Diego.  As the program ended, our guest and I talked about the AIAA local chapters and their monthly meetings.  These local chapter meetings provide excellent discussions on hot topic issues and more.
