ISEC is very pleased to announce that long-time science journalist Leonard David will give the Keynote address at this year's conference. We are very excited to have Mr. David with us this year and we're sure that his insights will be fascinating.

The theme of this year's conference is "Space Elevator Architectures and Roadmaps." Papers will be presented on this topic and other space-elevator related topics. There will be mini-workshops on Research Activities and Global Cooperation, Marine Node Design Concepts, and Space Elevator Architectures and Roadmaps as well as the ever popular Shotgun Science Session where all conference attendees can present their ideas in five minutes or less.

Family Science Fest

The Family Science Fest on Saturday, August 23rd will also be held at the Museum of Flight. This event is open to the public (no registration required) and is included in the museum admission price. The Family Science Fest includes Space Elevator 101 and 201 presentations, a youth robotics competition, exhibits from science organizations and clubs, and much more.

More details of the conference program and the Family Science Fest events are posted at http://spaceelevatorconference.org, including information on registration for the technical conference and lodging. Registration for the technical conference closes August 15th.
