The 32nd International Space Development Conference, to be held at the La Jolla Hyatt Regency, San Diego, California, May 23-27, 2013. Speakers at the ISDC will discuss many breakthroughs happening in space development. ISDC 2013 will showcase the latest developments, promote new ideas, and prove fertile ground for collaboration and innovation.
The conference theme is "Global Collaboration in 21st Century Space." This is the century we break free of the gravity that has limited our ability to colonize space. We will learn how to collaborate effectively in a global, soon to be multi-planetary community. ISDC promises to be the place where 21st century skills are developed for 21st century space.
ISDC will have tracks specific to the Moon, Mars, asteroids, space transportation, space solar power, business/policy, and transhumanism. All of these tracks are being developed by committees to incorporate the latest information. We welcome your input on what ISDC should offer within and outside of the designated tracks. ISDC is available on Facebook, Twitter, and Google + for staying abreast of the latest developments as well as providing opportunity for you to contribute. (See below for details.) Plenary and meal sessions will offer opportunities to hear from the giants in space science and industry.
