The International Academy of Astronautics will hold its 5th conference  from 15 to 19 May 2017 in Tokyo, Japan. The bi-annual conference brings together world experts to discuss the threat to Earth posed by asteroids and comets and actions that might be taken to deflect a threatening object.

  • Key International and Political Developments
  • Advancements in NEO Discovery
  • New NEO Characterization Results
  • Deflection & Disruption Modeling and Testing
  • Mission & Campaign Design
  • Impact Consequences
  • Disaster Response
  • Impact Risk Assessment and Decision to Act
  • Public Education and Communication

The conference will include a hypothetical NEO/Earth impact event scenario that will be part of the conference (similar to what was done at the 2013 & 2015 conferences). Conference attendees may also use the hypothetical scenario as their topic for papers and presentations.

Exercise

The conference will include a hypothetical NEO/Earth impact event scenario that will be part of the conference (similar to what was done at the 2013 & 2015 conferences).

The conference features several working groups to address different aspects of a Hypothetical Asteroid Impact Scenario. Although this scenario is realistic in many ways, it is completely fictional and does NOT describe an actual potential asteroid impact.

How to participate in the Emergency response exercise


Leaflet PDC 2017 in pdf format version is available.


Call for Papers

Papers are solicited in the areas listed below for the 2017 IAA Planetary Defense Conference (PDC), sponsored by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA).  The 2017 PDC will include a hypothetical NEO/Earth impact event scenario that will be part of the conference (similar to what was done at the 2013 & 2015 conferences). Conference attendees may also use the hypothetical scenario as their topic for papers and presentations. (Additional details about the hypothetical scenario are provided below *).  
An overall theme of the conference is to identify the most important areas that need development for an international program of planetary defense. Topic areas for papers include:

Key International and Political Developments
•    Focus on the latest non-technical developments that are moving planetary defense forward

Advancements in NEO Discovery
•    Highlight the latest developments related to discovery of possibly threatening asteroids and comets
•    Describe current progress and define requirements for future surveys and for astronomical techniques for characterization of NEOs
•    Current NEO survey progress and future prospects

New NEO Characterization Results
•    Latest findings related to characterizing NEO physical, dynamical, and orbital properties
•    Emphasis on characterization of properties most crucial to mitigation mission success
•    Identify technologies to characterize NEOs via remote sensing and spacecraft flyby/landing
•    Recent work on planned or active flight missions to NEOs (e.g., OSIRIS-REx, Hayabusa 2, etc.)

Deflection & Disruption Modeling and Testing
•    Recent results in modeling/experimentation that characterizes the effects of proposed NEO deflection and disruption techniques and technologies
•    Discuss recent progress and Identify key technologies that need to be developed for active defense (mitigation) of an identified NEA impactor

Mission & Campaign Design
•    New work in the design of in-space mission campaigns to respond to hazardous NEOs (reconnaissance, characterization, mitigation)
•    Development of NEO response mission campaigns, including an international approach
•    Design of planetary defense flight validation missions (e.g., AIDA, etc.)

Impact Consequences
•    New results on effects of ocean and land NEO impacts, including tsunamis generated by impacts; characterization of the damage footprint for NEO impacts
•    Interactions between incoming NEOs and the atmosphere; understanding the process of atmospheric break-up and airbursts for a variety of NEO types; could include summaries of the Chelyabinsk superbolide and its lessons
•    Possible effects on near-Earth space and space systems (e.g., communications) due to NEO debris in space
•    Consideration of the hazards of an individual impactor; consideration of the ensemble hazard integrated over the predicted population of impactors

Disaster Response
•    Lessons learned from public education, alerts, and warnings of natural disasters that would inform developments of similar notices for a pending NEO impact disaster

The Decision to Act
•    Current outlook on the NEO response decision-making process at various levels (e.g., global, national, etc.)
•    Identify areas of greatest risk and suggest analysis tools that could aid decision makers
•    Discuss the value of international collaboration and suggest ways to distribute the responsibility for defense against incoming NEAs.

Public Education and Communication
•    Current status of planetary defense / NEO-related public education and communication efforts
•    Concepts for improving NEO / planetary defense public education and communication
•    Connections to disaster response, e.g., effective formatting and dissemination of alerts, etc.


ABSTRACT SUBMITTAL:  Technical paper abstracts (250 to 500 words in length) in the areas described above or related to planetary defense will be accepted electronically by email to iaapdc(at)iaamail.org beginning October 1st, 2016. Please be sure to designate the topic area your paper addresses (see topics listed above). The deadline for receipt of abstracts is January 13, 2017. Letters of official acceptance will be mailed on or before February 09, 2017.

PAPERS:  Full paper manuscripts or two-page extended abstracts are encouraged. Revisions and corrections will be accepted within two weeks after the end of the conference. The format for papers is specified on the conference web site.  Accepted papers (including two-page extended abstracts and poster papers) will be published on the official conference proceedings memory stick and hosted at the conference website. A selection of best papers will also be published.

STUDENT COMPETITION: One or more of the best student paper(s) will be awarded a prize. The aim of the student competition is to help promote academic work and informed political debate by enhancing research and general understanding essential for sound decision making on NEO impact threats in years to come.


* The conference will include an exercise where participants will simulate the decision-making process for developing deflection and civil defense responses to a threat posed by hypothetical asteroid designated “2017 PDC.”  Information on the threat will be posted at http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/pdc17/ on June 1st, 2016 (11 months before the conference) and updates typical of what would be known if the threat were real will be provided in the months leading up to the conference.  Attendees are invited to use the hypothetical asteroid “2017 PDC” as a subject for their own exercises and for papers to be presented at the conference.  During the conference, updates on the threat will be provided daily, and participants will develop a set of actionable recommendations based on that information.

Tokyo enjoys a long history of prosperity as Japan’s capital since 1603, when Tokugawa Ieyasu established his shogunate and named the city Edo. Today, with a population of about 13 million, it has grown into the largest of the 47 prefectures of Japan and indeed one of the greatest metropolises in the world. Comprising 23 special wards, 26 cities, 5 towns, and 8 villages, Tokyo is the center of various activities in Japan including politics, economy, and culture.

Located geographically at roughly the center of the Japanese archipelago and in the southern part of the Kanto region, Tokyo shares borders with Chiba Prefecture to the east, separated by the Edogawa River; Yamanashi to the west, by a mountain range; Kanagawa to the south, by the Tamagawa River; and Saitama to the north. With a total area of 2,187 square kilometers, it is the third smallest administrative division in the country. And yet as compact as it is, the land unfolding from east to west is rich in topographical features, from lowlands of only 4 meters above sea level to scatterings of mountains, hills, and plateaus reaching 2,000 meters high, and extends even to the volcanic Izu Islands and the Ogasawara Islands in the Pacific Ocean. 

Tokyo offers a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture and dining to its visitors. The city's history can be appreciated in districts such as Asakusa, and in many excellent museums, historic temples and gardens. Contrary to common perception, Tokyo also offers a number of attractive green spaces in the city center and within relatively short train rides at its outskirts.

Venue

The venue : Miraikan (National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation)

PDC 2017 hotels


The nearest station from Miraikan is Fune-no-kagakukan of Yurikamome-line. It takes about 5 minutes by walk from this station to Miraikan.
The terminal of Yurikamome-line is Shinbashi-station (JR-line). It takes about 16 minutes by train from Shinagawa to Fune-no-kagakukan (8 stations). Therefore, the convenient place to go to Miraikan is Shinbashi.
Shinbashi-station is on the Yamanote-line, and for example, it takes just 3 min by train from Tokyo station to Shinbashi.
Therefore, it takes about 30 min from Tokyo-station (=the central part of Tokyo) to Miraikan.
