The International Space Elevator Consortium (ISEC) invites you to join us in Seattle for the latest research, knowledge, stimulating discussions, and exchange of ideas on space elevators at the 2013 Space Elevator Conference - August 23-25, 2013. The theme of this year's conference is “Tether Climbers” and their requirements, design, operations, operating environments, mass estimates, cost estimates, etc. Carbon nanotube research is also a very important topic that we continue to emphasize. We encourage participation by materials science researchers on this criticall and exciting subject.
Topics for papers should fall into one of these categories.
- Tether climbers requirements, design, and operation including:
- Power system design
- Power source
- Energy storage
- Drive train design
- Spacecraft design
