NASA announces its intent to participate in the 65th International Astronautical Congress (IAC) and requests that full-time graduate students attending U.S. universities or colleges respond to this “Call for Abstracts.”  The IAC – which is organized by the international Astronautical Federation (IAF), the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), and the International Institute of Space Law (IISL) – is the largest space-related conference world-wide and selects an average of 1000 scientific papers every year. The upcoming IAC will be held September 29-October 3, 2014 in Toronto Canada. NASA’s participation in this event is an on-going effort to continue to bridge NASA with the astronautical and space international community.
