Welcome Address

We will hold 3rd Nano-satellite Symposium on December 12th and 13th, 2011, at Kitakyushu International Conference Center.

The theme of this symposium is "Community Building for Micro/Nano-satellites."

As you know, Micro/Nano satellites are gradually going beyond education and becoming more practical tools of space utilization. Remote sensing for agricultural or forest management, space science, AIS, and many other practical missions are appearing using Micro/Nano-satellites.  And we believe that in near future Micro/Nano satellites will become an important tool of space utilization with its extremely low cost and short development time.

We hope that the researchers and engineers of Micro/Nano-satellites all over the world will get together to discuss such applications of Micro/Nano-satellites as well as the technologies to realize them, towards creating a new international community of Micro/Nano satellites. Please join us !

We are looking forward to seeing you in Kita-kyushu in this December.
