TWIoS2018 Call for papers

The Internet of Space (IoS) conference addresses the wild west of space applications, often called NewSpace, Entrepreneurial space, or Commercial Space. It is the emergent private spaceflight industry, with a special emphasis on microwave hardware. There has been a renaissance of interest and investment in space- and suborbital-based high-data-rate communications networks and other application. Since the signal transit times are small enough, many more applications are feasible: the creation of a world wide car-to-car communications network or global sensor & control systems for autonomous vehicles. The Internet of Space (IoS) is ahead of the innovation curve; it is at a very early stage, so focused discussions can make great progress.
