75th IAC

International Astronautical Congress
14 - 18 October 2024, Milan, Italy

On behalf of the International Programme Committee, it is our pleasure invite you to submit an abstract for the 75th International 

Astronautical Congress which will be hosted in Milan, Italy. 

IAC 2024 is being hosted by the Italian Association of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIDAA), a founding member of the IAF. Collaborating 

in this endeavour are the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and Leonardo, prestigious co-hosts collectively representing the diverse aspects 

of Italy's dynamic pursuits in space. Since its foundation and for more than 70 years, the IAF has -indeed- consistently served as a 

premier global platform and forum for the Italian space academia, industry and diplomacy. Demonstrating its substantial engagement, 

Italy ranked as the second-leading country worldwide in terms of abstract submissions to technical sessions for IAC 2023 in Baku. This 

remarkable dedication of Italian representatives extends to various IAF Committees, including the IPC, underscoring Italy's steadfast 

commitment to space exploration and technological progress. Harnessing the energy of the entire community and underpinned by a 

vivid national enthusiasm, plans are already in motion to ensure an exceptional scientific and technical experience for IAC 2024.

Our theme, ‘Responsible Space for Sustainability’ invites our global space community to explore how space can bring the community 

closer together to work towards common goals. We will bring together students, researchers, industry leaders, young professionals, and 

national representatives to share recent discoveries and new technologies, and to form connections across national borders.  

Space research is emerging globally as not just an exciting field for technological and scientific advancement, but as offering practical 

solutions for a more sustainable world. We have seen examples worldwide of how earth observation and communications technologies 

can bring people closer together, enable better disaster management, and make it possible to plan for the future. There is no better time 

to consider how we can promote responsible uses of space for the promotion of sustainability, on earth and in space. We are certain 

that contributions will be topical and exciting, and we hope that you will take the opportunity to connect with your international peers 

in Milan and submit your latest research to one or more of the 180+ technical sessions we will host. All abstracts will be peer reviewed, 

and a limited selection of papers will be chosen for oral or interactive presentations. 

We look forward to receiving your abstracts for IAC 2024 in Milan. We hope to begin important conversations which can be continued in 

2025 when IAC will be hosted in Sydney, Australia. IAC 2025 Sydney’s theme ‘Sustainable Space, Resilient Earth’ will pick up where Milan 

left off, bringing our community together again to focus on how space research and technologies can solve global challenges.  

I am pleased to invite you to attend the 75th International Astronautical Congress in Milan, Italy on 14 – 18 October 2024. It is a pleasure 

organizing this event with our host and longstanding IAF member, the Italian Association of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIDAA) and 

the two co-hosts Italian Space Agency (ASI) and Leonardo. While this is the fifth IAC taking place in Italy, it is the first IAC ever to be 

organized in the city of Milan. The previous IACs in Italy were held in Rome, Turin and most recently Naples in 2012. We look forward 

returning to Italy and discovering this northern city in the heart of Lombardy with its rich history, vibrant culture, and innovative spirit. 
The theme for 75th International Astronautical Congress will be “Responsible Space for Sustainability”, our intention is to highlight the 

importance of Space as an environment that must be kept secure and open to exploration, peaceful use, and international co-operation 

by present and future generations in the interests of the planet and all nations, regardless of their level of development and without 

discrimination of any kind. Sustainability in orbit is crucial as even more countries and actors are becoming actively involved in the space 

economy.
The IAC aims to gather researchers and professionals to discuss new developments in space science and exploration, space applications 

and operations, space technology, space infrastructure, space and society, and much more. We have the great pleasure of inviting you to 

propose one or more papers (oral or interactive) in any of the categories scheduled for the different symposia of the Congress. Submit 

your abstract for a chance to present your latest research to the international space community in Milan at IAC 2024. 
The IAC is the one place and time of the year where all global space actors come together. I am sure IAC 2024 will be outstanding and 

you do not want to miss out on it. Make sure to join us in beautiful Milan with the whole space community in October 2024 for the 75th 

International Astronautical Congress!  

The International Astronautical Congress (IAC) is coming back to Italy following successful editions held in Rome, Turin and Naples. 

The 75th edition of the IAC will be held indeed in the captivating city of Milan, Italy, from 14th to 18th October 2024. 

The IAC 2024 is hosted by the Italian Association of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIDAA), founder member of IAF, and co-hosted 

by  the  Italian  Space  Agency  (ASI)  and  Leonardo,  representing  together  the  entire  ecosystem  of  space  activities  in  Italy.  AIDAA 

embodies the academic pursuit of knowledge, with hundreds of academics and PhD students along with thousands of graduate and 

undergraduate students. ASI, one of the world's most important players in space science and technologies to reach and explore the 

cosmos, signifies the dedication of agencies and institutions. Finally, Leonardo, developing multi-domain capabilities in the aerospace, 

defence and security sector and playing a prominent role in major international strategic programs, represents the ingenuity of the 

Italian thriving space industry.

The motto of the IAC 2024 is "Responsible Space for Sustainability." In line with this theme, we aim to foster a collective commitment 

to the responsible exploration and utilization of space, ensuring a sustainable future for our planet and the broader cosmos.

This edition of the IAC holds special significance as we commemorate the 60th anniversary of the launch of San Marco 1, the first 

Italian satellite. Launched on 15th December 1964 by an Italian crew using an American Scout rocket from Wallops Flight Facility, 

Virginia, US, San Marco 1 was a pioneering achievement in Italy's space endeavors. As we reflect on this historical milestone, we are 

inspired to build on our past successes and chart a course for a bright and sustainable future in space exploration.

Milan, a city steeped in history, culture, and innovation, offers a vibrant setting for this momentous event. We are confident that 

this beautiful and dynamic city will provide an ideal backdrop for fruitful discussions, knowledge-sharing, and the formation of new 

partnerships that will propel our collective vision forward.

The  IAC  2024  will  be  a  place  to  connect  with  like-minded  individuals,  exchange  insights  and  ideas,  and  explore  the  boundless 

possibilities that space has to offer for the betterment of humanity. Together, we will address global challenges and seize opportunities 

to create a sustainable and responsible space ecosystem.

Message from the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA)

Message from the International Institute of Space Law (IISL)

On behalf of the International Institute of Space Law, I am pleased to invite you to attend our 67th Colloquium on the Law of Outer Space 

in Milan, Italy. This year’s Colloquium consists of seven exciting sessions and explores a range of highly relevant issues. Legal questions 

raised by current public and private space activities will be addressed and debated by the world’s finest space lawyers as well as students 

and young professionals. IISL will also co-host a session with the IAA: The 38th IAA-IISL ‘Scientific Legal Roundtable’ will provide an 

opportunity for lawyers, scientists, and engineers to address current developments in space in an interdisciplinary setting. These are all 

issues, to which, we believe, IISL can and should contribute to. No other Institution has this global inclusive reach and such a top-level 

experienced expert membership paired with bright young scholars, which guarantees relevant contributions. 

The World Finals of the 33rd Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition will take place in Milan, welcoming university students 

from Africa, the Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and North America, and we are proud and honoured that they will, as always, be 

judged by sitting members of the International Court of Justice. The IISL is proud to be an integral part of the Congress and its Technical 

Programme and to further the discourse between disciplines so fundamental to our shared ways forward in this new era of the use of 

space. We are greatly looking forward to welcoming you in Milan!  

Kai-Uwe Schrogl

a wide array of new activities to explore the unlimited possibilities of Space to improve the quality of life for people all over the world. 

Decades of continuous progress have been achieved through important international events such as the highly successful Summits 

in Washington DC and Mexico attended by 25 to 35 Heads of Space Agencies, as well as nearly 25 standalone IAA conferences in the 

world and 13 symposia each year at the International Astronautical Congress.

The International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) is pleased to invite you to attend the IAA Academy Day open meeting on Sunday and 

the various IAA symposia throughout the week. The Academy is organizing 13 symposia at next year’s IAC in Milan, Italy, representing 

about one third of the IAC technical program, and will co-host some interesting sessions with the IAF and the IISL. On the occasion of 

the Academy Day, newly elected Academicians will be introduced and the major IAA Awards will be given. 

Please join with us in advancing humankind’s reach into the Space frontier!

John Schumacher
President,

International Academy of Astronautics (IAA)

75th IAC

International Astronautical Congress
14 - 18 October 2024, Milan, Italy

The  International  Academy  of  Astronautics  is  a  community  of 

leading experts committed to expanding the frontiers of space, 

the newest realm of human activity. To foster the development 

of  astronautics,  the  Academy  undertakes  a  number  of 

activities, including the recognition of outstanding contributors 

through  elections  and  awards.  It  also  facilitates  professional 

communication, develops and promotes new ideas and initiatives, 

engages the public and fosters a sense of community among the 

members. The IAA is a unique independent non-governmental 

organization established in 1960 and recognized by the United 

Nations in 1996. It is an honorary society with an action agenda. 

With about 1200 elected members and corresponding members 

from  90  nations,  the  International  Academy  of  Astronautics 

works  closely  with  space  agencies,  industry,  the  academic 

community and the national science and engineering academies 

to  determine  needs  and  objectives  and  to  help  shape  policy 

and  forge  cooperation  by  means  of  studies,  position  papers, 

conferences and publications. The IAA has published more than 

70 studies to date and is engaged in the preparation of about 

40  others.  The  Academy  also  publishes  four  book  series  and 

its journal Acta Astronautica ranked 1st in the space area in the 

world and containing each year about 3500 refereed papers. The 

Academy organizes about 25 conferences and regional meetings 

per year focused on the development and promotion of all space 

activities and covering all continents including space developing 

countries.  In  addition,  the  Academy  activity  also  includes,  in 

cooperation  with  the  International  Astronautical  Federation 

and  the  International  Institute  of  Space  Law,  the  traditional 

contribution  to  the  International  Astronautical  Congress  (IAC), 

where the Academy organizes 13 symposia. The Academy also 

continues  to  enjoy  its  participation  in  the  COSPAR  Assemblies 

and the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote 

Sensing (ISPRS) congress. Although the IAA has many connections 

to these and other similar organizations, it is distinctive as the 

only  International  Academy  of  elected  members  in  the  broad 

area of astronautics and space.

Founded in 1960, the International Institute of Space Law (IISL) 

is an independent non-governmental organization  dedicated to 

fostering the development of space law. The membership of the 

Institute is composed of individuals and institutions from more 

than fourty countries, elected on the basis of their contributions 

to the field of space law or other social sciences related to space 

activities.  Additionally,  prospective  membership  is  open  to 

students and young professionals with a demonstrated interest 

in space law.

Since  1992,  the  IISL  has  organized  the  annual  Manfred  Lachs 

Space Law Moot Court Competition. The competition is based 

on a hypothetical space law case, and is written by IISL members. 

Approximately  sixty  student  teams  from  universities  in  Africa, 

the  Asia  Pacific,  Europe,  and  North  America  participate.  The 

competition is an important part of the organization ’s outreach 

programme, and is its principal mechanism for engaging future 

generations  of  space  law  experts.  The  regional  champions 

compete in the World Finals, which take place at the IAC and are 

judged each year by judges of the International Court of Justice. 

This unique feature makes the Manfred Lachs Moot Court one of 

the most prestigious moot court competitions in the world.

The  IISL  is  an  officially  recognized  observer  at  sessions  of  the 

United  Nations  Committee  on  the  Peaceful  Uses  of  Outer 

Space, and its Scientific & Technical and Legal Subcommittees. 

In cooperation with the European Centre for Space Law (ECSL), 

the  IISL  organizes  an  annual  space  law  symposium  for  the 

delegates  and  staff  attending  the  sessions  of  the  UNCOPUOS 

Legal Subcommittee. In addition the Institute organizes a variety 

of conferences on space law throughout the year in locations all 

over the world. It publishes an annual volume of IISL Proceedings 

with papers and reports of all these activities during the year.

75th IAC

International Astronautical Congress
14 - 18 October 2024, Milan, Italy

The Space Generation Advisory Council in Support of the United 

Nations  Programme  on  Space  Applications  is  a  global  non-

governmental, non-profit (US 501(c)3) organization and network 

which  aims  to  represent  university  students  and  young  space 

professionals aged 18-35 to the United Nations, space agencies, 

industry, and academia. Headquartered in Vienna, Austria, the 

SGAC network of members, volunteers, and alumni has grown 

to  more  than  27000  members  representing  more  than  165 

countries. SGAC was conceived at UNISPACE III in 1999, as part 

of  the  Vienna  Declaration,  "To  create  a  council  to  support  the 

United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, 

through raising awareness and exchange of fresh ideas by youth. 

The  vision  is  to  employ  the  creativity  in  advancing  humanity 

through  peaceful  uses  of  space".  SGAC  holds  Permanent 

Observer status at the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful 

Uses of Outer Space (UN COPUOS) and regularly takes part in the 

annual meeting, as well as its Legal and Scientific and Technical 

Subcommittees.  SGAC  holds  consultative  status  at  the  United 

Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC), contributing 

to discussions on the role of space in achieving the UN Sustainable 

Development  Goals.  As  a  volunteer-run  organization,  SGAC 

believes in empowering its members and providing them with 

opportunities for professional development through roles in the 

SGAC teams.

Further information regarding SGAC can be found at:  

www.spacegeneration.org

The International Programme Committee (IPC) is pleased to invite you to submit an abstract for consideration for the 75th International 

Astronautical Congress to be held in Milan, Italy from 14 to 18 October 2024. The Congress is organized by the International Astronautical 

Federation (IAF), hosted by the AIDAA, ASI and Leonardo, and will be supported by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), the 

International Institute of Space Law (IISL) and the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) who contribute to the IAC through their 

events and symposia. 

Under the motto 

“Responsible Space for Sustainability”, the intention of the IAC 2024 is to highlight the importance of Space as an

Medicine in Space and Extreme Environments

Over the last decades numerous space missions and experiments have taken place. The use of microgravity as a tool to study new fundamentals of life revealed a substantial 

number of new scientific insights and surprises. Space is the most famous extreme environment but different extreme environments also exist on Earth, such as high altitudes, 

confined and isolated environments like Antarctica and Arctica or even submarines. Results from research in these environments can be successfully applied for the benefits of 

human beings both in space and on Earth. This session will cover the latest scientific results and technological achievements from medical-physiological or psychological research in 

extreme environments for the benefit on Earth.

53RD IAA SYMPOSIUM ON THE SEARCH FOR EXTRATERRESTRIAL INTELLIGENCE (SETI) – THE NEXT STEPS

This symposium, organized by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), deals with the scientific, technical, and interdisciplinary aspects of the Search for Extra-Terrestrial 

Intelligence (SETI) on an international scale. SETI researchers are typically looking for anomalies in astronomical data, potentially associated with other technical civilisations in the 

Milky Way and beyond (so-called “techno-signatures”). The search includes all parts of the electromagnetic spectrum and utilises cutting-edge technologies deployed on some of 

the largest telescopes in the world. The interdisciplinary aspects of the topic involve the social and societal consequences of detecting a signal, engaging with a very wide variety of 

human cultural pursuits - including art, language, education, science, anthropology, sociology, psychology, legal, political and institutional issues, interactions with the media, public 

outreach and risk communication.

Constellations and Distributed Systems

Small satellites offer important advantages in creating new opportunities for implementing spatially-distributed space-based systems (e.g. Constellations). In this session we 

focus on new, emerging, or enabling technologies that can be used or are being used to create networked data collection systems via small satellites. Specifically, Session B4.7 

focuses on Constellations (e.g. Constellation missions for Earth Observation, IoT/M2M and LEO Communications), distributed architectures (e.g. Distributed SAR systems) and 

sensor systems and how these low-cost and rapidly delivered technologies offer the potential to fulfill complex user needs, working in coordination with other small or large 

space infrastructures (e.g. mega-constellations), as well as with airborne or terrestrial assets. Papers should show how cross-platform compatibility (both hardware and software 

aspects) can be used to enable these systems, any standards that are proposed or adopted, design techniques that enable this cross-platform compatibility, etc. We are particularly 

interested in technologies that enable small spacecraft to play an important role in upcoming applications, such as (but not limited to) civil security, telecommunications in 

remote areas, navigation support (e.g., along the new foreseen routes in the Arctic), natural disaster management (e.g., damage assessment and first responders support), and 

planetary exploration. In this regard, the development and usage of Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies are also of specific interest to the session. Distributed systems 

and their impact in terms of new opportunities for the emerging Commercial Space Industry and new commercial space missions with small platforms is also of specific interest 

to the session. The integrated applications of these sensor systems are covered in Symposium Session B5.2, and the broader view of tools and technologies to enable integrated 

applications are covered in B5.1. In B4.7 authors are also invited to analyze technological enhancements and new developments needed to guarantee small satellite integration 

with existing and scheduled assets from both the bus and payload perspectives. Also analysis of inter-operability within integrated systems can be addressed, like payload data 

management, spacecraft operation, and formation flying.

Large Constellations & Fleet Operations

Access to space has been simplified, and opened the door to a wider range of missions. Organisations are opting for distributed architectures of small satellite constellations 

instead of single-satellite missions. The complexity of the overall system has shifted, and necessitated a focus on efficient management and operation of a multitude of 

heterogeneous smaller elements. This session addresses the operations of large constellations, covering all related elements and phases; the operations concepts and solutions, 

the required ground segment architecture, the scale-up, deployment, and exploitation, the space traffic management approaches, end-of-life management, as well as the 

advantages, challenges, the outlook and foreseen developments.

IAF MATERIALS AND STRUCTURES SYMPOSIUM

The IAF Materials and Structures Committee addresses materials and structures technologies applicable to space transportation, space exploration and in orbit operation. Three 

sessions are allocated for the design, verification of qualification of launcher, spacecraft, large orbital structures and in-orbit operating vehicles and robotic systems. It concerns 

their structures, propellant tanks, propulsive subsystem mechanical components, fluidic and thermal control systems. Six sessions deal with specific technical topics related to 

the aforementioned different types of applications. Mastering the space structures control, dynamics and micro-dynamics is an important technical field of expertise ensuring the 

proper functioning of space transportation systems and in-orbit structures and robotic systems. The structures require for high reliability and performance a thorough selection, 

characterization and qualification of materials, considering the space environmental conditions covering a temperature range from cryogenic conditions up to extreme high 

temperatures during re-entry in the atmosphere. Protection systems are mandatory especially for in-orbit operating structures, vehicles, space stations and robotic systems. The 

application of additive manufacturing technologies allow to design and produce multifunctional structures. New smart materials, adaptive structures and nanotechnologies pave 

the way for new advanced designs of e.g. Sensors and actuators. Reduction of production cost are nowadays playing a very important role. A specific session has been set-up which 

is addressing the manufacturing and industrialization for Launch Vehicle and Space Vehicle Structures and components.

thermal insulation concepts)

The topics to be addressed include structures and materials for extreme environments, including both cryogenic applications and high temperature applications in space related 

domains. The session covers the full spectrum of material, design, manufacturing and testing. Operation of structures and mechanisms in cryogenic environment is quite 

challenging. This concerns the components design as well as the materials they are made of or lubricants needed for proper functioning. Tanks for storage of cryogenic propellants 

for launch vehicle application or long term storage of cryogenic liquids require an appropriate material selection and characterization, especially when organic composite materials 

are considered. Cryogenic insulation for propellant tanks and lines, especially for reusable launch vehicles exposed to aerothermal loads might require a combination with high 

temperature thermal protection systems. (Foam with metallic protection, vacuum insulated sandwich, stand-off thermal protection…). For the elevated temperature regime, this 

session includes carbon-carbon and ceramic matrix composites, ultra-high temperature ceramic matrix composites, ablative materials, ceramic tiles and insulations, together with 

innovative structural concepts making use of the above, for propulsion systems, launchers, hypersonic vehicles, re-entry vehicles, aero capture, power generation.

reliability, and affordability of space components, especially in terms of greater accuracy/dimensional stability, longer life, greater survivability to both natural and threat 

environments, and producibility capability for high volume production. Different additive manufacturing (AM) processes are currently used for different materials in the fabrication 

of metal, ceramic, and plastic parts. New and different processes are being developed for utilization of lunar regolith materials for manufacturing and construction. As a very new 

technique, AM is strongly emerging due to the capability of optimization of structural parts for space applications as it concerns weight reduction, improvement of mechanical 

properties and reduction of development and lead times as well as cost reduction. The ability to utilize in situ resources for manufacturing and construction is very attractive for 

logistics reduction for deep space exploration.

IAF SPACE POWER SYMPOSIUM

Reliable energy systems continue to be key for all space missions. The future exploration and development of space depend on new, more affordable and more reliable energy 

sources of diverse types ranging from the very small to the extraordinarily large. Moreover, the continuing support for space activities by the public requires that these activities 

are increasingly inserted into the global challenge to transition current terrestrial energy systems into more environmentally friendly, sustainable ones. The space sector has 

traditionally served as cutting edge precursor for the development of some renewable power systems. These activities are now put into a much larger space & energy perspective. 

These range from joint technology development up to visionary concepts such as space solar power plants. The Space Power Symposium, organized by the International 

Astronautical Federation (IAF), addresses all these aspects, covering the whole range from power generation, energy conversion & storage, power management, power 

transmission & distribution at system and sub-system levels including commercial considerations. It will include, but not be restricted, to topics such as advanced solar and nuclear 

systems for spacecraft power and propulsion, novel power generation and energy harvesting, and examine the prospects for using space-based power plants to provide energy 

remotely to the Earth or other planets.
