A Message from the Coordinators
The IAC is the one place and time of the year when all space actors come together. Global, multidisciplinary and covering all space sectors and topics, it offers everyone the latest space information, developments but above all contacts and potential partnerships. Each year, the IAC changes country, theme and local organizer, enabling all to learn more about, and be a part of the world space scene.
The IAC is the platform by which over 40 administrative and technical committees support the Federation in its mission to advance knowledge about space and to foster the development of space assets by facilitating global cooperation. At its annual International Astronautical Congress (IAC) and other thematic conferences, the IAF brings its multidisciplinary and international network to life.
Hereby we would like to draw your particular attention to the IAC 2015 / 58th the Law of Outer Space organized by the International Institute of Space Law (IISL). The purposes and objectives of the Institute include the cooperation with appropriate international organisations and national institutions in the field of space law and the carrying out of tasks for fostering the development of space law. It also includes the studies of legal and social science aspects of the exploration and use of outer space and the holding of meetings, colloquia and competitions on juridical and social science aspects of space activities. Since its inception, the IISL has held annual colloquia on space law, the proceedings of which are published. The IISL presently has individual and institutional elected members from over 40 countries who are distinguished for their contributions to space law development.
