About

Women in Space 2019 is an expansion of the Women in Planetary Science 2018 conference held in Toronto. This event is an opportunity for scientists and engineers to showcase their work in the field of space and planetary science. The event highlights the achievements of women and non-binary researchers, while offering an opportunity to discuss, challenge, network, and support their peers.

Supporting #WomenInSTEM is the prime goal of this event.

We encourage geologists, geophysicists, engineers, geographers, biologists, chemists, physicists, astronomers, social scientists, and any other people of all genders working or researching in a related field to apply. Of particular interest are students studying space law, space exploration history, or commercial aspects of space exploration.
