About i-SAIRAS 2024

An Invitation to Participate in i-SAIRAS 2024

I am delighted to invite your participation in the International Symposium on Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Automation in Space, i-SAIRAS 2024, which will be held in Brisbane on November 19-21, 2024.

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 for space applications. This three-day Symposium will 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.

2024 will mark the first time that this international event will be held in Australia in its 25-year history. With attendees and presenters coming from space agencies, space related industry and technology companies around the world, i-SAIRAS 2024 will offer a global platform to promote your organisation’s ideas and technologies to representatives from all the major space agencies.

Mark your calendars! We look forward to seeing you in Brisbane.
