STCW CFP 2016 : 2016 Spacecraft Thermal Control Workshop CFP - Deadline Extended to Feb. 8
Call For Papers
The 27th Spacecraft Thermal Control Workshop will be held at The Aerospace Corporation in El Segundo, CA. The workshop provides a forum for the aerospace thermal control community to share information related to new technology developments and lessons learned. It is open to government contractors, military personnel, and academia. The companion 20th Workshop on Thermophysics in Microgravity will be held on Monday, March 21.
* * The abstract submittal deadline has been extended to February 8, 2016 * *
