7th IAA Planetary Defense Conference
The Conference will be organised by the International Academy of Astronautics and hosted by the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) supported by a Programme Committee comprising NASA, ESA, renowned industries, universities and research institutes and a Local Organizing Committee.
This bi-annual conference brings together world experts to discuss the threat to Earth posed by asteroids and comets and actions that might be taken to deflect or disrupt a threatening object.
A hypothetical NEO/Earth impact scenario will be part of the conference (similar to what was done at previous conferences). The conference will include panel discussions and a small exhibition. As in the past, all presentations will be video streamed.
The programme will be available on the event website.
Registration and acceptance of abstracts will start on 1 September 2020. More information and links are given on the event website.
