(H-SPACE 2018)

WELCOME

The Federated Innovation and Knowledge Centre (EIT), within the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) – in cooperation with the Hungarian Astronautical Society - organizes an international conference on space research under the name of H-SPACE 2018. Following the success of previous conferences, this becomes the 4th International Conference on Research, Technology and Education of Space.

The topic of this year’s conference is “Space research for society on every scale”. The agenda of the conference addresses scientific, technological and educational aspects of space research and space activities. The conference is open to both international and local professionals. It also provides an opportunity to showcase Hungarian scientific, technological, educational and outreach activities, related to space. The conference consists of three main sections, related to Science, and Technology (in English), followed by Education and Outreach (in Hungarian only).

We accept abstracts for oral and poster presentations. All accepted abstracts will be published in the book of abstracts. Authors will be asked to submit a full paper which will be published in the official conference proceedings after the conference. We have a no show - no paper policy which means only those papers will be published in the conference proceedings whose authors participated the conference and hold their presentation (either oral or poster). The authors of the best lectures will be given an option to publish their papers in peer-reviewed journals.

CONJUNCTION EVENT: SpaceUp Budapest 2018

On the afternoon of the second day, SpaceUp Budapest 2018 will be organized. SpaceUp is a space unconference, where participants decide the topics, schedule, and structure of the event. Everyone who attends SpaceUp is encouraged to give a talk, moderate a panel, or start a discussion. Sessions are proposed and scheduled on the day they’re given, which means the usual “hallway conversations” turn into full-fledged topics. The SpaceUp Budapest 2018 is organized by the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC), the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), the Hungarian Astronautical Society (MANT), and the Scientific Association for Infocommunications (HTE).
