    IAC-22 — 73rd International Astronautical Congress

    A1. IAF/IAA SPACE LIFE SCIENCES SYMPOSIUM

    This symposium jointly organised by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) and the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) addresses all aspects of space life sciences research and practice in human and robotic spaceflight, from Low Earth Orbit (LEO) to the universe beyond, and from the Big Bang to the lives of future explorers on other planets of our solar system.

    A1.1. Behaviour, Performance and Psychosocial Issues in Space

    This session considers psychosocial, interpersonal, cultural, cognitive, sleep, circadian rhythm and human factors issues and countermeasures related to human spaceflight and space exploration.

    A1.2. Human Physiology in Space

    This session focuses on physiological effects of short- and long-duration spaceflight, and how this affects general health. Research into mitigation (countermeasures) of space effects are also included.

    A1.3. Medical Care for Humans in Space

    This session focuses on medical care for astronauts including operational medicine aspects, countermeasure development and applications, as well as needs for future care for astronauts during long term, stays in space and missions to and on the Moon and Mars. A further focus will lie on medical care for passengers and operators of commercial suborbital and orbital space flights.

    A1.4. Medicine in Space and Extreme Environments

    Over the last decades numerous space missions and experiments have taken place. The use of microgravity as a tool to study new fundamentals of life revealed a substantial number of new scientific insights and surprises. Space is the most famous extreme environment but different extreme environments also exist on Earth, such as high altitudes, confined and isolated environments like Antarctica and Arctica or even submarines. Results from research in these environments can be successfully applied for the benefits of human beings both in space and on Earth. This session will cover the latest scientific results and technological achievements from medical-physiological or psychological research in extreme environments for the benefit on Earth.

    A1.5. Radiation Fields, Effects and Risks in Human Space Missions

    The major topics of this session are the characterization of the radiation environment by theoretical modeling and experimental data, radiation effects on physical and biological systems, countermeasures to radiation and radiation risk assessment.

    A1.6. Astrobiology and Exploration

    Space exploration planning now includes ambitious goals like human missions to the Moon and Mars, and sophisticated robotic exploration of targets relevant for astrobiology such as the Mars subsurface and the primary ocean worlds Europa, Enceladus, and Titan. Astrobiology is, therefore, becoming a space flight science, ready for direct measurements of habitability and the presence of life off Earth in many places. The session invites papers related to astrobiology, biomarkers, life detection, and planetary protection.

    A1.IP. Interactive Presentations - IAF/IAA SPACE LIFE SCIENCES SYMPOSIUM

    This session offers a unique opportunity to deliver your key messages in an interactive presentation on any of the subjects of Space Life Sciences addressed in the classic Sessions. The presentation will be displayed on a digital screen in a dedicated location and available for view by all Congress attendees for the entire Congress week. In addition, one afternoon is dedicated exclusively for the attendees to view the Interactive Presentations, and the author will be assigned a specific eight minute slot to personally present the topic and interact with the attendees present. The Interactive Presentation may take advantage of all electronic display capabilities, such as: PowerPoint charts, embedded hot links, pictures, audio and video clips, etc. An award will also be presented to the author of the best Interactive Presentation in the A Category at a special ceremony. An Abstract that follows the standard format must be submitted by the deadline for standard IAC abstracts.
