Coronavirus (COVID-19) Considerations

The conference organizers have decided to hold the 2022 AAS/AIAA Astrodynamics Specialist Conference in person at the Sheraton Le Meridien Charlotte Hotel in Charlotte, NC.

We are really looking forward to see a regathering of the professional community and a renewal of our personal connections after more than two years of pandemic.

We will be constantly monitoring all risk indicators and we will be ready to revert to an online event if dictated by health advisories and regulations.

Please monitor the conference website for updates on the conference guidelines. We will abide to any applicable local, state, and federal laws.
