    IAC-16 — 67th International Astronautical Congress


    The Global Technical Symposium (GTS) is designed to offer a modern and eclectic platform at the IAC for sharing technical content to an open minded audience on-site but also online! Oriented towards young and talented space professionals, it allows for sharing of information on a global scale with presenters and audience both at the IAC venue and online at their home/work/university locations. The Global Technical Sessions are similar to the conventional technical sessions with abstract selection and paper submissions. They are jointly organized by associated technical committees and co-chaired by seasoned experts and young professionals in order to stimulate the interaction with the authors. The Global Technical Sessions are the IAC cradle for future talents and a modern session to speak with a larger audience thanks to the real-time broadcast online. It can also allow the authors who can’t come to IAC to present their paper to the onsite audience at the IAC and is recorded for further use and personal branding by the presenter.
