A Conference developing multi Agency Space Research and addressing Solar System Exploration, Earth Sciences, Space Weather, and Exoplanet characterization through advanced Space Missions, Instrumentation, and modern AI/ML methods.

0 1

The future of space exploration requires global coordination across space agencies, research institutions and industry. In this workshop, we seek to expand collaboration between researchers and key players from space agencies, industry, and local universities, exploring new opportunities and building on previous successes. During these sessions, the speakers will report the latest research on key exploration themes. They will connect these to new technologies and methods being developed across the Americas, including the latest artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) developments.

The conference will take place at the "Centro de Congresos y Exposiciones Emilio Civit" in downtown Mendoza, Argentina. Specifically in the auditorium "Sala el Plumerillo". The conference site is located in the "Barrio Cívico", a specific city area with many government buildings, yet close to the city's central commercial district.



Several hotels are located near the conference center, and we are organizing special rates for the attendees. When registering, please specify if you plan to stay at any of these hotel options: 

  • Hotel Diplomatic (premium)

  • Park Hyatt (premium)

  • Hotel Aconcagua 



Mendoza has an International Airport with direct flights from many major cities. Flights from the US and Europe typically connect in Buenos Aires (Arg) or Santiago (Chile) when reaching Mendoza. There is a direct flight to Mendoza from Panama City (COPA Airlines), which is accessible from many cities in North/Central America.
