FROM THE CHAIRMEN
This symposium again offers many opportunities for exchanging information, exploring new concepts, encouraging international cooperation in mission planning, and developing new collaborative relationships among individuals and institutions. This 9th symposium also provides a panel discussion. Furthermore, in our 9th symposium we included again the Student Prize Paper Competition. The student papers have been evaluated by distinguished judges selected from academia, industry and government, coming from different continents. The prizes are funded by different organizations (industry and institutions). The IAA is pleased to serve as the principal sponsor of this symposium because its objectives complement and reinforce the purpose of the Academy.
It is a pleasure for the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Berlin-Adlershof to be the host of this symposium. DLR's site Berlin-Adlershof has been successfully involved in space research for many years. Together with other relevant institutes of the DLR, it is now involved in many international and national projects for Earth observations, planetary sciences, technology development and in-orbit verification.
Last but not least, Berlin provides a good environment because this city continuously pursues new architectural approaches in urban development after the reunification of Germany. We believe that Berlin is really a bridge between the West and East as well as the North and South. As in the previous symposia, Berlin may serve symbolically as a meeting place for information exchange and collaborative development between the two hemispheres, as well as a bridge between the classical, more general mission design approaches and the smaller and smaller satellite approaches for dedicated objectives.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Berlin in April 2013.

The Symposium venue – Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften (BBAW)
The Berlin Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, founded by Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz in 1700, stands for 300 years of support for research activities. It attained worldwide reputation and recognition as the Prussian Academy of Sciences. Its members have included the Brothers Grimm, Alexander von Humboldt, Max Planck, Lise Meitner and Albert Einstein. Throughout its history the Society could rank 78 Nobel Laureates among its members.
There are bilateral agreements on scientific co-operation with about 20 Academies from around the world.
