CubeSat Symposium at the 2020 CSME International Congress

As part of the 2020 Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering International Congress, there will be a symposium on CubeSat innovation and research. This call is open to a wide audience, including researchers, industry members, student teams and educators. CubeSats have been a democratizing force in the space industry, and we hope the symposium will reflect this. Abstracts/papers are due Jan 15, 2020. We hope to see you there!

The symposium chair invites you to submit a paper or an abstract in all fields related to CubeSat development and missions, as well as related technologies, to the 2020 CSME International Congress to be held at the University of Prince Edward Island Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, from June 21-24, 2020.

CubeSats (or nanosats) are an integral technology in the development of the “New Space” industry and have served to make space science and exploration accessible to industry, academia and citizen scientists. 2020 will mark 21 years since the development of the CubeSat standard by the California Polytechnic State University and it is estimated that as of January 2019 over 1000 CubeSats have been launched. The first Canadian-developed CubeSat, CanX-1, was launched in 2003 and 33 more Canadian CubeSats are scheduled to be launched over the next 3 years.

The goal of this symposium is to share knowledge, experience and recent developments in CubeSat research in order to support the development of successful missions and innovative space technology.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • CubeSat development and testing (payload, bus, subsystems, components, materials).
  • CubeSat operational mission experience.
  • Lessons learned from CubeSat projects and missions
    Citizen science.
  • Education, training and skills development impact of CubeSat projects.
  • Scientific Missions.
  • Propulsion Subsystems.
  • Attitude Determination and Control Subsystems.
  • Telecommunications, Ground Stations and Ground Station Networks.
  • Technology Demonstration on CubeSats (e.g. formation flying, intersatellite link, sails, tethers, etc).
  • Space Exploration Missions with CubeSat (i.e. beyond Earth orbit).
  • Launchers and Deployers for CubeSats.


When? 21-24/06/20
Where? University of Prince Edward Island
550 University Ave, Charlottetown, PE C1A 4P3, Canada.
