RAST 2017 : 8th International Conference on Recent Advances in Space Technologies-RAST 2017 (IEEE, Scopus & Web of Science Indexed)
Call For Papers
8th International Conference on Recent Advances in Space Technologies - RAST 2017 with the Theme topic “Space Economy: Development and Sustainability” will be held on 19-22 June 2017, Istanbul, Turkey.
Please consider contributing by submitting an article to RAST 2017. Presented papers will be recommended for publication in IEEE Xplore, Scopus and Web of Science (THOMSON REUTERS Conference Proceedings Citation Index) as the previous RASTs. After the conference, the extended and enhanced versions of the selected papers will be considered for publication in the Journal of Aeronautics and Space Technologies (www.hho.edu.tr/HutenDergi/JAST/).

Objectives: RAST 2017 has the main objective of providing a forum for the presentation and review of developments in space economy, as well as all aspects of recent developments in space technologies. In particular, a focus is desired on a historical and current evaluation of the economic aspects of space technology and how it can further contribute to economic development, with specific emphasis on the developing and less developed World, while at the same time making a serious contribution to the sustainability of the environment and natural resources. Presentations are encouraged from government and international space agencies as well as the private sector.
Participants: As in previous RAST Conferences, RAST 2017 is intended to be a forum for the exchange of recent research results and ideas in space technologies and applications; this time with specific reference to space economy. It should be of interest to a wide range of participants from government agencies, relevant international institutions, universities, research organizations, space companies, as well as media and the general public. The conference should serve as an opportunity for networking and fruitful exchange with fellow participants on topics of mutual interest.
Topics: In general, contributions regarding all aspects of recent developments in space technologies are welcome. Presentations addressing the specific theme of RAST 2017 are especially encouraged. Papers may fall under, but not be limited to the following topics:
• Economic aspects of space, review and prospects
• New and emerging private space initiatives
