Purpose and scope
The Global Lunar Conference organized jointly by the International Astronautical Federation, the Chinese Society of Astronautics and the International Lunar Exploration Working Group (ILEWG) will broadly focus on Lunar Exploration. Gathering decisions makers from space agencies and industries, key specialists of our largest satellite and related topics specialists, the conference will trace the development of on-going and future missions to the Moon, to have a better understanding of today's challenges and reflect on how international cooperation can help in reaching ambitious objectives. The large spectrum of topics addressed will include: programmatic aspects, exploration (science, technology and robotics), human missions and life sciences, lunar habitats and architectural aspects, economical, societal, legal and cultural aspects.
The renewed focus on the Moon and the ambitious vision for the next era of lunar exploration require careful integration of scientific, engineering, international, and commercial interests to facilitate a sustainable program. This joint meeting brings these interests together to address key questions regarding roles of the various stakeholders in establishing sustainable lunar exploration that will ultimately lead to humans learning to live and work off planet. The joint conference will also build upon the topics from previous ILEWG/ICEUM conferences discussing new results and worldwide lunar activities. The meeting report and the ILEWG declaration will capture the presentations and ensuing discussions.
The meeting will consist of plenary and concurrent technical sessions comprised of both invited and contributed talks. Each session will focus on questions pertinent to lunar exploration and will include discussions and recommendations addressing the themes of this Global Lunar Conference. Interactive poster sessions will be held on the evening of 31 May.
