The great number of scientists, engineers, and managers who participated in the hitherto existing symposia reflects the high interest in the use of small satellites for dedicated missions applied to earth observation, from scientific earth observation missions to technology demonstration missions.
These types of missions can be conducted relatively quickly and inexpensively and provide increased opportunity for access to space
The spacecraft bus and instruments can be based either on optimized off-the-shelf systems, with little or no requirements for new technology, or on new high-technology systems. Thus a new class of advanced small satellites, including autonomously operating "intelligent" satellites may be created, opening new fields of application for scientific purposes as well as operational, public and commercial services.
The symposium will provide a forum for scientists, engineers and managers to exchange information about planned and on-going programs and missions, and present new ideas, covering small satellite mission objectives as well as technology and management aspects for dedicated earth observation satellites. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
Small Satellite Mission Programs
Objectives for Small Satellite Missions
Mature (off the Shelf) Systems
University programs and systems
Distributed Space Systems
Space Debriss issues
Student Prize Paper Competition*)

CALL FOR PAPERS
You are invited to contribute a paper for presentation at the symposium. A one-page, single-spaced abstract of no less than 300 and no more than 500 words*) must be received by
31 October, 2016.
Abstracts should be in English and should include the symposium topic addressed, the problem explored, the methodology used, results and conclusions so as to allow the Scientific Program Committee to make an informed decision regarding their suitability for inclusion into the symposium.
Notification of your paper's acceptance and author's instructions will be sent by 30 November 2016.
One copy of the symposium digest comprising the extended abstracts (four pages) will be part of the registration package handed over when registering on-site.
Final papers for the symposium proceedings are limited to eight pages, including tables and illustrations. The symposium proceedings will provide the contributed papers and interactive poster session papers presented during the symposium. They will be distributed on CD/DVD to the participants after the conference.
Outstanding presentations of papers and posters will be awarded.
Send your abstract by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org

To partially offset the cost of the Symposium, there will be a registration fee in the order of € 600 for participants registering by
January 31, 2017.
After that date, the registration fee will raise to € 700. The registration fee for students amounts to € 190.
The fee will cover admission to the sessions, the symposium digest, a copy of the proceedings published after the symposium, coffee breaks and lunch. A social program for accompanying persons will be organized.
Registration forms will be placed end of November onto the symposium webpage as part of the Final Announcement: http://www.dlr.de/iaa.symp
