The NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts Program’s 2012 Fall Symposium will be held Nov. 14-15, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Hampton, Va.

NIAC examines early stage concepts that may lead to advanced and innovative space technologies critical for NASA to enable missions in the next 10 to 100 years.

Panel topics during the free public symposium include propulsion and power, space debris removal, near-Earth object mitigation, humans in space and on the surface of planets, robotics and space probes, and imaging and communications.

Experts in aeronautics and advanced technologies will give keynote presentations and discuss the latest news about NIAC’s progress and plans. Poster sessions will showcase the ongoing projects of current NIAC fellows.

Keynote speakers include NASA’s chief technologist, Mason Peck, and professor Penny Boston of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology in Socorro.
