Other Programs at ISDC

Notice I have tried to avoid all conflict with other moon-related programming, but you will be up against other interesting stuff.

For example --
Friday morning: Mir and Space Station Alpha;
Symposium on space tourism;
robotics and teleoperation, Business workshop (1)
plus two other good workshops (Project to use Earth-based radar to detect near surface lunar lavatubes, brainstorming a triple helix space settlement)
Friday afternoon: Symposium on Space Settlements;
Space transportation, Spaceports, X-Prize;
Advanced propulsion systems, new launchers;
Business workshop (2),
one other good workshops (Commercial Space Legislation)

Saturday Morning: Sympoosium on Space and Lunar-based energy systems;
Symposium on Space Social Studies, SEDS programming,
three good workshops (Moon/Mars/Space Constitutions, Demonstrating Mars Aviation on Earth, Planetary Studies workshop)

Saturday afternoon: NSS Town Meeting,
Activist Program,
Involvement Program,
Seds program,
three good workshops (Space Social Sciences, Mars Hovercraft design brainstorming, Frontier Fiction writers workshop)

Saturday evening: a midwestern picnic at the Third Street Pier before boarding the Edelweiss Excursion boat(s) down river and out into the Lake Michigan harbor, with talk "Cruising Mare Crisium" by Greg (second boat, if needed, by P. Kokh)

Sunday morning: JPL missions, Europa, Asteroids, Comets;
Symposium on Exploring Mars;
Educators Program, Nanotechnology, Tethers, and Processing,
plus one good workshops (one of which may be on getting started "The University of Luna in Cyberspace" - "U-LuCy")

Sunday afternoon: CELSS, biospherics, Green engineering, Human factors enginerering;
Symposium on the Economics of the Opening of Mars,
Educators program, Remote sensing, data mining, detectable signatures of starships;
plus two good workshops (Putting together a teachers workbook on the Economic Geography of the Solar System; Brainstorming a manned mission into Europa's Ocean)

Time is working against any elaborate exhibits, so it may be time to get more realistic. Let me know if there will be any ASI/LRC displays. The League of New Worlds (Merrit Island, FL exploring analogies between seabed and space habitats) hopes to have their two man Challenger seabed habitat module ready in time to truck to ISDC, probably to be displayed outdoors.

Feedback, objections, suggestions, etc. welcome.
