The LSIC Fall Meeting will be held virtually from October 14-15 2020. It will feature a keynote address, working sessions, and technical poster presentations. The event will center on the interrelationships between the six LSIC focus areas, especially in the context of surface power.

Meeting Information

Day one of the meeting (October 14th) will feature keynote addresses and LSIC-wide plenary sessions, including a poster session.

Day two (October 15th) will delve more deeply into technology areas with smaller group discussions, focus area-specific technological need exploration, and examining the interrelationships among LSIC focus areas.

LSIC's overall goal of fostering communication and collaboration among academia, industry, non-profits, and government will be advanced through this dynamic event. Please save the date to join us and add your perspective with other thought leaders and technology pioneers working on development of the lunar surface.

Logistics and Virtual Platforms

The LSIC Fall Meeting will be conducted via Zoom and Gather Town, with virtual posters also hosted on the LSIC website. Both Zoom and GatherTown can be accessed through a browser without installing additional applications. Plenary and break-out sessions will be hosted in zoom. GatherTown will be available on Day 1 (October 14th) for the poster session as well as before the meeting and during lunch. We will offer several demo sessions to familiarize attendees with GatherTown in advance of the meeting.
