It’s not too late to submit an abstract for this year’s ICSSC Conference. Please send an email to:  icssc2016-technicalcommittee@lists.nasa.gov and they will grant you late submission access to the system.



In order to submit an abstract for consideration, one must first create an account on the Ka/ICSSC event website. (Click the "More Info" button below).  After creating your account there, follow the posted abstract submission directions.


Registration to attend the conference is a separate process after one has created an account with Ka/ICSSC.


The combined 34th AIAA International Communications Satellite Systems Conference and 22nd Ka and Broadband Communications Conference to be held in Cleveland, Ohio is the ideal venue to celebrate early satellite systems accomplishments and discuss the challenges and discoveries required for the next 50 years. Be a part of the future promise of extraordinary technological and human feats enabled by these satellite capabilities.

This year’s combined conference will emphasize the satellite architectures, payloads, technologies, and systems required for the next 50 years of satellite and communications systems advancements.


Complete details of the combined program can be found on the official conference website: www.kaconf.org
