Computational Methods in Spaceflight Dynamics and Control
Manuscripts are solicited on topics related to spaceflight mechanics and astrodynamics, including but not limited to:
Analytical and Computational Perturbation Methods for Celestial Mechanics
Dynamical Systems Theory Applied to Celestial Mechanics
Computational Challenges Associated with Space Situational Awareness
Optimal Estimation and Probabilistic Methods in Astrodynamics
Spacecraft Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC)
Computational Methods to Design Optimal Trajectories for Space Missions
Rendezvous, Relative Motion, Proximity Missions, and Formation Flying
Orbital Debris and Space Environment
Constellation Design and Optimization
The symposium will have about 30 paper presentations; 4 of which will be KEYNOTE PAPERS (40 minutes each), 6 INVITED (25 minutes each), and about 20 other INVITED presentations of 20 minutes duration each, with a mix of senior as well as upcoming researchers. All 30 papers will initially be INVITED and the evaluation of the abstracts will be evaluated and selected for 40, 25 or 20 minutes presentations. Either abstracts for presentation-only papers or full-length papers will be considered.
