MSGC Fall Conference

This conference is an opportunity for individuals from academia, industry, and the local community to share their experience in areas related to NASA strategic interests.  It is also a forum where MSGC Fellowship recipients can present the results of their research and where MSGC Educational Program award winners can share about the impact of their efforts.  The conference is free to all, but registration is required for planning purposes. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Make sure to read and review the MSGC Meeting Code of Conduct.

Call for Abstracts/Presentations

Abstracts (not to exceed 150 words) will be solicited for oral and poster presentations that detail efforts in MSGC programs as well as non-MSGC-supported but related activities. Individuals planning to make a presentation at the conference should submit an abstract at the time of registration. We will be live-streaming the Keynote & Oral Presentations from the Conference. We cannot accommodate Virtual Presentations at the Conference. If you are unable to attend in person, you may record your presentation ahead of time. The video will be posted on the MSGC website and YouTube channel. On the registration form, note preference for oral or poster presentation.  All information for the presentation – title, authors, institution, address, and abstract – are entered directly into the registration form. Oral presentations are not guaranteed due to limited space.

Ideally most presenters at the conference will be MSGC award recipients from the 2022-2023 academic year and those from 2021-2022 who have not yet had a chance to present their work.

If presenters request to give a talk, they will be informed by September 23, 2022 whether or not that will fit into the schedule for the day or whether their presentation will need to be a poster.
