Global Space Actors To Meet In Daejeon, Republic of Korea
The 60th International Astronautical Congress IAC2009 will take place in the Daejeon, Republic of Korea, from 12 to 16 October.
The Congress "“ which last year attracted around 3000 participants "“ will be attended by scientists, engineers, heads of space agencies, business leaders and students to debate the latest ideas, current activities and future ambitions across a diverse range of space-related topics.
All members of the Media attending IAC2009 will require advance accreditation and the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) is pleased to invite your Media organization to apply. Media attendance is free.
