Delegates are invited to propose ideas for presentation and discussion within the three Themes to allow the Theme Organisers (members of the Technical Committee) to structure the Workshop sessions. The 'structuring process' will consist of estimating a time allocation for each proposed area, grouping similar proposals, discarding or reformatting proposals not matching the purpose of the theme etc...
If the number of proposals is too high and/or the content of the proposal is too complex and cannot all be discussed at the workshop then the proposals will be prioritised by the theme organisers. Only the proposals with the highest priority will be allocated a time window for discussions.
At this workshop, priority will be given to the 'what' as opposed to the 'how'. Lower priority proposals will be discussed only if time permitting, during coffee breaks, during the discussions of the selected proposals if relevant. However, the initial prioritisation may change during the workshop if considered relevant by the majority of the delegates during the discussions.
Each selected proposal will be presented in a few minutes by one (or more) representative of the group(s) who conceptualised it. The time allocation for each presentation a 20 minute presentation followed by 15 minutes of debate/discussion, followed by 10 minutes reserved at the discretion of the Session Joint Chairs. After the presentation, the relevance and content of each proposition will be discussed by the attendees with the aim to agree on a common workshop output.
The following are the guidelines for submitted presentations:
Guideline 1 - Presentations should clearly report:
- What are the major mission and/or operations requirement(s) which drive technological development and innovation?
- What are the novel and/or original ideas and concepts that were (will be) contributed to driving technological development and innovation?
- Can future area(s) of further contribution be identified based on what has been achieved so far?
- Can a roadmap for future development/exploitation be produced?
Guideline 2 - Presentations and the originating organisation:
- The presentation should reflect the 'collective' view of their organisation's on-going development and/or operations concept.
- The presentation should have been reviewed by their management before the submission, referring to Guideline 1.
- The strategic buy-in of their organisation should be made clear.
Guideline 3 - Presentation title and summary:
- Presentation title and summary information will be needed by 11 April 2011 and should be submitted on the form downloadable from the SpaceOps2011 workshop website and/or ftp site.
