- AIS: Technology Development to Commercialization
- Space-DRUMS™: Fingers of Sound for Supporting ISS Based Studies on ISS
This biennial event is hosted by the Canadian Alumni of the International Space University (CAISU) that aims at promoting space awareness among students, young professionals and the community in general by having the participants work on topics in a space-related theme immersed in a dynamic and interdisciplinary setting. The theme for this workshop is:
“ISS to Commercialization: Canada’s Future Space Contributions”
Based on Canada’s future cooperation in the space industry and its perception in mainstream media, NSAW 2010 by way of understanding the media, and therefore public perception of Canada’s space program, will specifically aid awareness regarding future commercialization programs and the utilization of the International Space Station (ISS) through 2030.
Perspectives from space industry professionals, educators and media personalities followed by a hands-on workshop for participants will allow for close examination of how Canada can be better prepared to participate on the world stage in the coming two decades and how we can most effectively elicit the support of the Canadian public.
