2015 IISL-ECSL Symposium
The annual IISL-ECSL Symposium will be held in VIenna, Austria in conjunction with the UNCOPUOS Legal Subcommittee on April 13, 2015. The theme of this year's symposium is Space Traffic Management.
Space Traffic Management (STM) is a concept, which emerged in the first decade of this century. The first comprehensive approach was presented in the 2006 study prepared by the International Academy of Astronautics with the involvement of numerous members of the International Institute of Space Law and the European Centre for Space Law. STM provides an approach to enter into, operate in and return from space, safe from any interference.
The Symposium provides a status report of the concept of STM and puts it into context of current discussions on the governance and regulation of space activities. It shall discuss the viability of the concept and its potential benefits. The question shall also be raised, when and under which conditions, States might be ready to negotiate a completely new set-up for space activities. The Symposium therefore will cast a look into the future but at the same time respond to regulatory needs of today.
