The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) – in cooperation with the Hungarian Astronautical Society (MANT) – organizes an international conference on space research under the name of H-SPACE 2024. Following the success of previous conferences, this becomes the 8th International Conference on Research, Technology and Education of Space.

The featured topic of this year’s conference is “Cooperation in the space sector”, however, contributions are not limited to the featured topic. 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, followed by Education and Outreach.

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.

The participation of the conference is free-of-charge. The conference will be a hybrid event. On the first day, we will host in person presentations (oral and posters) which will be live streamed for online participants. The second day we will host online presentations.


We can offer the participation for free-of-charge for our authors and for our participants.
Online registration will open in March


The conference proceedings will be published as a PDF document here. We will publish two proceedings: book of abstracts (before the conference, with ISBN number) and selected papers (a few weeks after the conference, with ISBN number).


April 25, Thursday – in person event

The event on Thursday will be live streamed for online participants. All lectures will be on site in Budapest.

April 26, Friday – online event


The H-SPACE 2024 conference will take place at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics in Budapest, Hungary, in building I  (where I stands for Informatics).

The nearest public transport stop to the university is “Petőfi híd, budai hídfő” at the Petőfi bridge, where the major tram lines Nr. 4 and 6 stop (and several bus lines). From the tram stop, take the underpass and turn left (south), then head along the foot-path going parallel to the river Danube. On the first corner turn to the right, and start to go around on that semicircle street (Magyar tudósok körútja)

There is an other public transport stop nearby, named “Infopark” of tram line 1.

The university is 15 minutes walk from the nearest metro station (metro line M4), which allows direct access to the train stations and bus stations in less than 15 minutes, and the Budapest Airport is only 60 minutes by public transport.

Location on April 25: Building I, ground floor

Address: Magyar tudósok krt. 2., H-1117, Budapest
