ISSRDC 2020 Online Series
The International Space Station Research and Development Conference (ISSRDC) is entering its ninth year of bringing together space industry leaders, researchers, the space community, and the public to learn more about what is taking place onboard the orbiting laboratory.
The theme for this year’s conference, From Vision to Discovery, calls for us to collectively focus on how the past can better inform future science and opportunities to enable new LEO markets and advance exploration goals so that humankind can land healthy and safely on the moon in the coming years.
As this year’s conference goes virtual, spreading plenary session dates out over a three-month window will provide interested viewers ample time to plan in advance to join sessions pertinent to their interests and careers.
Day One (August 27, 10 a.m. EDT): Plenary sessions will have a strong focus on NASA-led commercialization initiatives, agency and space station-related scientific overviews, along with an update on the evolution of the U.S. National Laboratory. As we near 20 years of continuous human presence in space, join us as we discuss critical updates and plans.
Day Two (September 17) will take a deeper dive into the business trends of researchers leveraging the ISS. Join us to learn about the many pathways to commercialization of the research and technology development performed on the space station.
Day Three (October 22) will touch on myriad science and educational activities, with the last session of the day focusing on the 20 years of student investigations enabled by the ISS. Join us to discover the latest examples of how space station science impacts healthcare, technology, and educational outreach on Earth.
