Dear Academician,

We would like to remind you that you have until October 30, 2015 deadline to contribute a paper for presentation at the 2nd IAA Latin American CubeSat Workshop February 28 to March 2, 2016, Florianopolis, Brazil.

Following up its successful 2014 edition held in Brasilia, the 2nd IAA-LACW will keep the focus on topics related to CubeSat technology, providing a forum for scientists and engineers to discuss their achievements and cutting edge findings. Considering the increasing interest in CubeSat activities, and the recent successful Cubesat missions in Latin America, IAA, Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC) and University of Brasilia (UnB) are organizing in 2016 a workshop where participants from industry and academia will have the opportunity to share their professional knowledge, enlarging their networks in the subject. Some of the most outstanding professionals in CubeSat missions and applications will attend the workshop giving special talks and lectures.

Please upload your abstract online
