    4. Scientific-Legal Round Table on Space Traffic Management (IAA.5.13/IISL): Space traffic already takes place. But the investigation of space traffic and its management has only recently become a point of wider discussion. The centerpiece of this Round-Table is the presentation and discussion of an international interdisciplinary study project by IAA, which has been conducted between 2001 and 2005.This study, for the first time, comprises an in-depth analysis of the technical and regulatory features of space traffic. In the form of findings and recommendations it draws the picture of a space traffic management regime, which might come into operation by 2020. Invited papers to the Round-Table will cover the most prominend aspects of space traffic management and lead to a discussion of the concept. A panel discussion will be held at the end of the round-table.
