International Symposium on
Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Automation in Space (i-SAIRAS) 2024

19 - 21 November 2024

Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre | Queensland Australia

i-SAIRAS is an exciting biennial event that brings together the international space community to explore the latest advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, and automation. The Symposia are led by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA-ASC), the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the European Space Agency (ESA), the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), and the National Aerospace and Space Administration (NASA).  The Symposia provide an ideal platform for agencies, researchers, and industry professionals engaged in the fields of AI, robotics, and space exploration, seeking to share knowledge, foster collaborations, and shape the future of space technology. 

The theme for i-SAIRAS 2024 is New Frontiers: Harnessing AI, Automation and Robotics for Space Exploration and Earth's Challenges.  The Symposium will be hosted by Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, and will include a special focus on exploring the interconnection between advancements on Earth and their applications in space exploration.
