ICES 2020

The 50th International Conference on Environmental Systems (ICES 2020) will cover all topics related to humans living and working in extreme environments with applications inside or outside of terrestrial or outer space habitats or vehicles, including:

  • aerospace human factors
  • environmental control and life-support system technology
  • environmental monitoring and controls
  • planetary protection
  • EVA system technology
  • life sciences
  • planetary habitats and systems
  • thermal control systems technology for both manned and unmanned vehicles
