Mezinárodní seminář - “Advanced devices, materials and research methods for space application"

The Organizing Committee of the International Seminar SPACE’2011 invites you and your colleagues to take part in this event.

The SPACE’2011 deals with 50-Anniversary of the Gagarin’s flight in Space.

The Seminar goal is to assist the international cooperation of researchers from academic institutes, universities, scientific and educational centers, industrial and designing companies in solving of topical problems in the field of space research and engineering.

The Seminar will be held on 5-7 October 2011 at the Conference hall of the Aerospace Research and Test Establishment, Beranovych 130, 19905 Prague, Czech Republic. Please see the interactive map.

The SPACE’2011 organizers: Aerospace Research and Test Establishment (VZLU), Prague, Czech Republic, Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics Russian Academy of Sciences (ICP RAS, Moscow) and Saint Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation, Russian Federation.

The SPACE’2011 Seminar Programme will include oral and poster presentations, as well as general discussions corresponding with the topics of the seminar organized in the frame of two base sessions: “Materials for space application” and “Space Instrumentation and Control Problems”.


Main suggested topics are:

Sensors and instruments for space applications

  • Development of sensors and instruments for space applications 
  • Advanced detecting and measurement systems in optics, electronics, magnetism and astrophysics 
  • Laser technologies and optical data transmission systems 
  • Measurement of residual microaccelerations on board of a spacecraft 
  • Ground testing of space sensors 
  • Innovative technology for detection and measurement of the third millennium 
  • International co-operation and prospective projects

Advanced materials for space applications

  • Typical composite material applications in space platforms and vehicles 
  • New types of stiff high-temperature resistant ceramic materials 
  • Amorphous metal, metal foams and their application in space 
  • New types of adhesives or matrices filled by nanoparticles 
  • New types of light metal alloys for space application 
  • Friction welding technology for aerospace production 
  • Thermoplastic composites and their application in space 
  • Materials for thermal and shock protection 
  • Ground testing of materials 
  • Out of autoclave composite processing technologies (RTM, Vacuum Bagging) - new design possibilities 
  • International co-operation and prospective projects

Selection of presentations will be carried out in accordance with the abstracts and application forms of participants. Abstracts submitted to review (MS Word, about 500 words in length, Times New Roman 12 font), should present a clear concise view of the motivation of the subject, give an outline, and include information on all authors (the full name, affiliation, address, telephone number, fax number, and e-mail address of the corresponding author). The language of the abstracts is English. The electronic file should have a name of first author of the paper and should be sent to following addresses:

Publication: the abstracts of accepted presentations will be published in a special book and provided for the workshop participants. The full manuscripts (up to 6 pages) of papers will be published in the Seminar Proceedings and CD. The Proceedings will be prepared directly from the papers supplied by authors; therefore careful preparation in accordance with instruction is required. Detail information will be contained at the SPACE 2011 web page.

During workshop working days following cultural events and social aspects will be ensured:

  • invitation party at the evening in the first working day of workshop; 
  • assistance in accommodation booking for workshop participants; 
  • meals (lunch and coffee break) for workshop participants

We recommend accommodation in hotel DUO
