44th Scientific Assembly of the Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) and Associated Events "COSPAR 2022"

The objectives of COSPAR Assemblies remain the same, namely "to promote on an international level scientific research in space, with emphasis on the exchange of results, information and opinions and to provide a forum, open to all scientists, for the discussion of problems that may affect scientific space research". The Science Program Committee (SPC) and the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for Athens 2022 remain dedicated to fulfilling these objectives and invite the world's scientific community to participate and submit abstracts to well over 350 sessions proposed so far. There will certainly be no shortage of new scientific findings in the subject areas of COSPAR's eight Commissions and eleven Panels, so the 44th Scientific Assembly will be exciting and rewarding.
