The 31st AAS/AIAA Space Flight Mechanics Meeting – Call for Papers

Abstract Deadline: October 5, 2020*

*There will be no deadline extension.

Conference: January 31 – February 4, 2021

Covid-19: The conditions of the conference (in person or online) are subject to the development of the pandemic.

Manuscripts are solicited on topics related to space-flight mechanics and astrodynamics, including but not limited to:

  • Space robotics and autonomous space operations
  • Earth orbital and planetary mission studies
  • Asteroid and non-Earth orbiting missions
  • Trajectory / mission / maneuver design and optimization
  • Orbital dynamics, perturbations, and stability
  • Rendezvous, relative motion, proximity missions, and formation flying
  • Satellite constellations
  • Dynamical systems theory applied to space flight problems
  • Reusable launch vehicle design, dynamics, guidance, and control
  • Machine learning, artificial intelligence, applied math applied to space flight problems
  • Orbital debris and space environment
  • Space Situational Awareness (SSA), Conjunction Analysis (CA), and collision avoidance
  • Orbit determination and space-surveillance tracking
  • Spacecraft guidance, navigation and control (GNC)
  • Attitude dynamics, determination and control
  • Ground-based sensors for space applications and pay- load-sensors
  • Atmospheric re-entry guidance and control
  • Dynamics and control of large space structures and tethers

Manuscripts will be accepted based on the quality of the extended abstract, the originality of the work and/or ideas, and the anticipated interest in the proposed subject. Submissions that are based on experimental results or current data, or report on ongoing missions, are especially encouraged. Complete manuscripts are required before the conference. English is the working language for the conference.
