The BIS International Space Forum
The newly titled ‘BIS International Space Forum’ is an evolution of the long-standing and highly successful ‘Sino-Russian Technical Forum’. This is a meeting place for discussing and reporting on all international space activities, exploring the latest insights into critical issues within the space domain from across the globe and is now open to the reporting of wider international affairs.
The Forum aims to report, discuss and track the progress and heritage of international efforts to advance astronautics, either those being made by individual nations or collectively, highlighting areas of interdependence between different space programmes, and the opportunities/challenges in how and where the global space community can or should be working together.
This year gives an opportunity for past attendees of the Forum to re-group and welcome new attendees to become part of the discussion. We invite contributions that can be included either as presented talks, or as guided discussions/debate and welcome topics covering historic, current, and future perspectives. A summary of the Forum will be reported in the Society’s publications.
Topics can include past, present or future perspectives on international space activities, e.g.:
- International relations and interdependence of space programmes across different countries.
- Collaboration between governments and the private/commercial space sector.
- Emerging space technologies, new practices, international standards.
- International space policy, legal, regulatory and security challenges/opportunities.
- Sociopolitical and financial barriers, proposed ideas and solutions.
- Opportunities for Improving Space Education, Spin-out activities and benefits to Life on Earth.
- Celebrations of successes and insights/lessons learned from history.
