LSIC Fall Meeting

Wednesday, November 2, 2022 -Thursday, November 3, 2022

Venue: University of Texas-El Paso


Registration and the abstract portal will be opening in mid-August.

The Lunar Surface Innovation Consortium (LSIC) fall meeting will be held on Nov 2nd-3rd, 2022, at the University of Texas at El Paso and online. The event will feature interrelationships between the six focus areas identified by the Consortium, with a specific focus on how they relate to excavation and construction. 

LSIC’s overall goal is to foster communication and collaboration among academia, industry, non-profits, and government. The fall meeting will feature individual invited talks, group and panel discussions, as well as poster sessions, breakout groups, and networking opportunities.

Call for Abstracts 

We invite abstracts describing technical capabilities within the six LSIC focus areas, as well as those that identify lunar surface technology needs and assess the readiness of relative systems and components. Other topics of interest include defining the parameters and constraints of the architecture required to support a sustained presence on the lunar surface, as well as economic and policy considerations. 

The six LSIC technical focus areas are:

  • Dust Mitigation
  • Excavation & Construction
  • Extreme Access
  • Extreme Environments
  • In Situ Resource Utilization
  • Surface Power

The abstract submission portal will open no later than mid August, and all abstracts are due by 11:59PM EDT on September 13th. Abstracts should be submitted in pdf format, and are limited to 1 page, including any figures and tables, at no smaller than 10-point font (and 1-inch margins). Please use the abstract template that will be provided on the meeting webpage. Contributed abstracts will be presented as posters, with a subset of those selected by the technical organizing committee also highlighted in lightning talks. 

Public Dissemination Disclaimer

Please note that your abstract submission will be viewed as permission to publish uploaded presentation materials (e.g. abstracts, slides, recorded presentations) to the general public on the LSIC website.
