European Space Components Conference (ESCCON) 2016

Tuesday, March 1, 2016 - 8:00 am / Thursday, March 3, 2016 - 5:00 pm CET

The Space Components Steering Board of the European Space Components Coordination (ESCC) has the pleasure to announce the European Space Components Conference ESCCON 2016.

The focus of ESCCON is set on all relevant matters to be considered for the definition of policy and strategy directions for space components. The conference is an international forum and is open to all specialists involved in the development, selection, procurement and use of EEE (Electrical, Electronic and Electromechanical) components in space systems.

Presentations and discussions will address areas such as standardisation and harmonisation, technology insertion and validation, investments and funding, availability and sustainability on the basis of real life project and industrial experience and expectations for future evolution. ESCCON 2016 will aim as well at addressing the intrinsic reliability of advanced EEE components in consideration of their application in space systems.

The conference’s program will be based on presentations to be given by invited speakers. Therefore, there will be no call for papers.


ESCCON 2016 is organised by the ESCC Space Components Steering Board, whose current members are:
Representatives of components manufacturers in Europe: Atmel and STM (for the Silicon manufacturers), UMS (for the III-V manufacturers), Thales Alenia Space (for the Hybrids manufacturers)
ASD Eurospace: Alter Technology TÜV NORD, Airbus Defense and Space, Thales Alenia Space
National Agencies: ASI, CNES, DLR, UK Space Agency
International Observers: EU-EC, ISRO, INTA, Enterprise Ireland, JAXA
The European Space Agency


Please note that advance registration is mandatory to ensure access to the ESTEC site.
Attendance to ESCCON 2016 is open without any restrictions. A registration fee will be required to cover some of the organisational costs associated with the event.
The registration to the conference will be possible in this website. Online registration will be open on the basis of an advance programme from November 2015.
