 ABOUT

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 (including NASA and CONAE), 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.
