    This symposium provides an international forum for recent advancements in assessment of the latest technology achievements in space structures, structural dynamics and materials. The Symposium addresses the design and development of space vehicle structures and mechanical/thermal/fluidic systems. Future advances in a number of space systems applications for space power, space transportation, astrodynamics, space exploration, space propulsion and space station will depend increasingly on the successful application of innovative materials and the development of structural concepts - particularly those relating to very large deployable (and assembled) space structures. For these applications to occur, increased interaction between these technology communities, and collaboration among technologists and mission planners needs to be pursued. Substantial improvements are essential in a wide range of current technologies, including nanotechnologies, to reduce projected costs and increase potential scientific returns from respective mission system applications. Papers in this symposium will review the projected advances in materials and space structures in this domain for advanced space systems applications.
