We are offering various formats: plenary and panel sessions, roundtable talk with the representatives from research, education, authorities and business, presentations and exhibitions.

The conference will cover the following issues:

·         Scientific heritage of the space research pioneers and the aerospace design schools;

·         Fundamental and specialized issues of space research;

·         Space research solving the social, economic and strategic problems;

·         Space research and the Humanities;

·         History of space research and space engineering.
