Access to the Colloquium is via the hotel side entrance about 30 metres to the left of the main entrance.
The Colloquium attracts an international audience from across Europe as well as North America and the Middle East. Attendees range from the builders of the CubeSats and Nanosats, those who communicate through them and beginners who wish to find out more about this fascinating branch of the hobby.
It provides a rare opportunity to chat with satellite designers and builders, discussions frequently continue until the early hours of the morning.
A Gala dinner is held on the Saturday evening along with the fund raising auction.
We will be including an exclusive roundup of a number of new live and potential spacecraft projects that are under investigation and/or development.
Additionally a number of presentations are planned covering new communications techniques and similar futuristic topics.
Plus all the usual networking opportunities, the gala dinner and auction/raffle.
The weekend event is open to all. It attracts an international audience that ranges from those involved in building and operating Amateur Radio satellites to beginners who wish to find out more about this fascinating branch of the hobby.
Access to the Colloquium is via the hotel side entrance.
AMSAT-UK invites speakers, to cover topics about micro-satellites, CubeSats, Nanosats, space and associated activities, for this event.
They are also invited to submit papers for subsequent publishing on the AMSAT-UK web site. We normally prefer authors to present talks themselves rather than having someone else give them in the authors’ absence. We also welcome “unpresented” papers for the web site.
We appreciate that it is not always possible to give a firm indication of attendance at this stage but expressions of interest would be appreciated.
Submissions should be sent *ONLY* to G4DPZ, via the following routes:
