We welcomed Dr. Jeff Puschell and Tony Williams to our program to discuss this year's AIAA Space 2014 Conference to be held in San Diego, CA from August 4-7, 2014. For full conference information including registration and hotel information, visit http://www.aiaa-space.org. During our one segment 64 minute program, our guests took us through important details, features, and benefits of this conference, plus conference registration and hotel information. There are changes in this year's conference as compared to earlier AIAA Space conference so listen carefully as we covered most of them in our discussion and with listener email questions. Our guests pointed out that the theme for this year's Space conference is "Connecting, Protecting, and Enhancing a Global Society." From there, we went through plenary speakers and sessions, speaker panels, and selective tracks, all of which have been organized to support the conference theme. You can follow along with our keynote, speaker panels, and tracks from the website. To do so, use the Table of Contents options in the Explore Space Forum 2014 section at the top of the conference home page. Some of the listener questions included asking for an explanation of the AIAA conference peer review process for submitting and getting papers approved, the networking reception and opportunities, the Exhibit Hall, this year's Pickering Lecture and the AIAA rule "no paper no podium." Questions were asked about topics other than technical and engineering. Our guests pointed out the policy and legal track which addresses these issues. We also talked about tracks focusing on entrepreneurism, Earth monitoring, global security, NewSpace and much more. Our guests explained how this conference represents the new trend with AIAA as several other conferences have been merged with this one. One item to note is that the conference hotel block rooms are sold out so if you are attending, you will need to select from nearby hotels within the area of the San Diego Convention Center. The Early Bird registration expires July 28. Please post comments/questions on TSS Blog.
