The Global Virtual Workshop I

 

The first Global Virtual Workshop (GVW-I) of the Stardust-R network is organised by the University of Pisa (Italy) and the University of Belgrade (Serbia) in the period of 7-10 September 2020. GVW-I is the first international event of the project and will cover theme of “Exploration, Exploitation of Minor Bodies of the Solar System”. The event will last for 4 days.

Due to the current Covid-19 emergency THE WORKSHOP IS PLANNED TO BEĀ HELD REMOTELY, both for speakers and participants.

If the current situation changes, the Workshop will be hosted by the Department of Mathematics of the University of Pisa, and it will be possible to participate to the meeting either in person or via remote connection.
 
The GVW-I programme will cover the following topics:
 
1) close approaches theory for impact monitoring
2) control of small satellites with limited resources
3) deep space navigation
4) deflection of asteroids by kinetic impactors
5) dynamical and physical characterisation of asteroids and binary systems
6) intelligent landing systems
7) mutual geometry of orbits
8) navigation in close proximity and landing on solar system minor bodies
9) orbit determination of asteroids
10) patched dynamics for satellites and spacecrafts
11) sample return missions
12) small spacecraft systems for deep space missions

Besides invited talks and tutorials on topics strictly related to the network research (http://www.stardust-network.eu), there will be oral contributions of the network Early Stage Researchers and space for external contributions.
 
Proposals for external talks can be sent by e-mail to stardust-r@adams.dm.unipi.it before June 30, 2020.
 
No registration fee is required.
