International Workshop

Satellite & Space Missions: Developments and Applications

Please scroll down for the Final Program

The International Workshop of Satellite and Space Mission: Developments and Applications scheduled to be  held in Egypt during  04-05 June, 2016. The focus of the workshop is the science and technology of satellite and its applications.

With the rapid growth and developments of space technology, space explorations and their applications has become a very important subject in our daily.    
The conference aims to provide ample opportunities to all those who are interested particularly multi-disciplinary academics, engineers, and researcher etc.  The conference would have a number of sessions including presentations, sharing and exchanging of ideas, and discussion panels on research relating to the scope of the conference such as satellites, satellite subsystems, aerospace engineering, orbital and attitude dynamics of spacecraft, and Spacecraft-Environment interactions. In addition, the conference would discuss the satellite applications Such as Remote Sensing, GIS, Space weather, Navigation and Communications.
