The 3rd Annual International Space Station (ISS) Research and Development Conference will be held June 17-19, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. This conference is organized by the American Astronautical Society (AAS) with the support of the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and NASA.

A Call for Papers is available for download at the AAS website www.astronautical.org.  Abstracts are solicited under the categories of Discoveries in Microgravity Science; Discoveries in Space Science, Earth Science, Engineering and Education; Applications Benefiting Earth; Applications Enabling Exploration; Applications in Technology; Commercial Applications; and Opportunities. Topics should relate to science, exploration and technology activities (past, present, planned or under development) on the International Space Station.  The deadline for submitting abstracts is February 14, 2014.

The conference will focus on ISS discoveries, applications and opportunities in physical sciences, life sciences, Earth and space sciences, STEM education and spacecraft technology and exploration development. Plenary sessions will highlight major results and pathways to future opportunities.  Parallel technical sessions will provide tracks for scientists to be updated on significant accomplishments to date within their disciplines. Organizations managing and funding research on ISS will provide overviews of upcoming opportunities.

Please plan to join us for this third annual conference offering perspectives on the full breadth of research and technology development on ISS, including opportunities for future research. Details and registration information will be posted on the web site http://astronautical.org/node/251.
