    Title

    Space Societies and Museums

    Description

    Space Societies form a special and important group of IAF members, in size the second largest after space industries. They include professional societies, non-profit organisations and other organisations interested in space activities. Some have a large membership of 10.000 or more, others can be small to very small. There are some which are already a century old, others are just being created. They exist in traditional and emerging space nations. Together, they constitute an impressive number of individuals who all are connected to space. If things move according to plan, as of 2013 Space Museums are also entitled to become members of the IAF, providing their own interaction possibilities to space enthusiasts. This symposium, organised by the IAF Space Societies Committee, is the first of its nature. It is intended to offer a podium for ideas and proposals to enhance the interaction between the societies, their members and the Federation. Papers could for example address proposals to exchange experiences and good practices, sharing articles, exhibition or educational material, novel ideas to help outreach to the general public, etc. In particular also papers are invited on ways to integrate young societies, representatives of emerging space nations and museums in the IAF family and to develop mutual benefits.
