Abstract Deadline: November 15, 2012.
The 29th International Symposium on Space Technology and Science (ISTS) will be held at Nagoya Congress Center, in Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture from June 2 (Sun) to June 9 (Sun), 2013. The 29th ISTS Organizing Committee and the Japan Society for Aeronautical and Space Sciences (JSASS) invite individuals of all nations interested in space-related activities to participate in this memorial event.
The Symposium will offer opportunities for all the participants to exchange information and views on a variety of technical and scientific topics as well as on the general status of national and international space programs. The 29th ISTS will be held under the main theme of “WISH IT, DREAM IT, DO IT !”
The symposium will include Keynote Speeches, Special Programs, Organized Sessions and Panel Discussions by invited papers or speakers and the Technical Sessions and Student Session of contributed papers.
One of Japan’s three major metropolises, Nagoya is located in the center of Japan, and is the nation’s core of car and aerospace manufacturing. The foundation of Nagoya was laid in 1610 with the construction of Nagoya castle. Since then, craftsmanship has bloomed and commerce and industry have thrived. With the persisting fragrance of samurai tradition, Nagoya has developed and grown as a city with balanced industry and culture. Now Nagoya offers a great deal for ISTS participants to enjoy, from historical and industrial tourism, to shopping districts lined with world class brands, to a wide variety of unique cuisines.

The purpose of this session is to encourage students to present their own results. Papers should be single-authored by master course students, undergraduate students or students in technical colleges, or senior high schools. The authors are requested to present their own work in the regular technical session in each field. Doctor course students may submit their papers only when the paper is based on their master course study. The themes from on-going Ph.D. thesis research are advised to be presented in general sessions. Special prizes will be awarded to the meritorious papers based on the jury’s evaluation both for the manuscripts and the presentations.
Poster Session is planned to be held at specified hours during the Symposium. The authors will be requested to stay in the allocated session room during this session for explanations and discussions. Several excellent posters presented at the poster session will be awarded with a prize.
