UNESCO and the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) are co-organizing this international conference on space applications and services. The topics range from monitoring and understanding climate change, remote-sensing for disaster response, to new technologies in communications.
This Conference provides an excellent opportunity to review cutting-edge satellite-based applications from a holistic perspective. The Conference will bring together the global satellite-based services stakeholder community, including senior representatives of the major space agencies,industry, governments, academia and NGOs. These leaders in the field will converge in Paris to present results, exchange ideas, debate roadmaps, and discuss the future opportunities provided by satellite-based applications.

The comprehensive programme will include high-level round tables and technical sessions that will address the most recent achievements in satellite-based applications and explore how industry, politics, and law will help shape the future environment for this exciting domain of astronautics. The conference will start with a dedicated session for the representatives of Member States to UNESCO, and feature plenaries with heads of space agencies and heads of industry.
