The IAC is organized by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF), the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), and the International Institute of Space Law (IISL).
In 2012, the IAC will be held in Naples, Italy, October 1-5, 2012. The IAC has posted a “Call for Abstracts,” with a submission deadline of February 29, 2012 (14:00 CET).
