Do you have a suggestion for a Panel Session?

The ICES Steering Committee wants your help in bringing together a panel of innovative, enthusiastic and technical minds for a discussion on what lies ahead for the large and growing human spaceflight community.  Prospective moderators, panelists, and/or contributors can submit their idea for a panel session by providing a title, 300-word maximum abstract of the panel and suggestions for POTENTIAL panel participants.


Abstracts for panel sessions should be submitted to the ICES700 technical session in Easy Chair. Proposed panel sessions will be evaluated solely on the basis of their suitability for inclusion in the program.


The deadline for receipt of panel abstracts via electronic submittal is Friday, 09 November, 2018 by midnight Eastern Standard Time.  Authors having trouble submitting abstracts electronically should send an email to :


Panel session submitters will be notified of abstract acceptance or rejection on or about 10 December 2018.  Submitters of accepted abstracts will work collaboratively with the ICES 2019 Panel Chair to finalize the panel session organization, format, and list of panelists.
