Call for Abstracts, Meeting Registration, American Society for Gravitational and Space Research

We are pleased to announce the Call for Abstracts and Meeting Registration for the 29th annual meeting of the American Society for Gravitational and Space Research (ASGSR) and the 5th International Symposium on Physical Sciences in Space (ISPS). The meeting will take place November 3rd – 8th, 2013 in the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista located in the Walt Disney World Resort, Florida, U.S.A.

Make plans to join an international community of scientists and technologists to discuss gravitational and space research. We anticipate a program of unusual breadth, variety and integration with emphasis on space research and technology in physical phenomena and biological sciences. Symposiums are planned to discuss interfaces between biological and physical sciences, space radiation health risks and countermeasures, suborbital microgravity research, grant writing workshops, and education and outreach workshops. Along with technical sessions on science and technology, the Center for the Advancement of Space (CASIS) will conduct an informative workshop scheduled for Monday, November 4th, 2013 following a plenary session including speakers from international space agencies including NASA, JAXA, ESA, and CSA. There will be a banquet held Thursday, November 7th, 2013 featuring astronaut Don Pettit. He is a veteran of two long-duration stays aboard the International Space Station, one space shuttle mission and a six-week expedition to find meteorites in Antarctica

New for 2013 – we have significantly reduced our student registration rates, and have special lodging rates for students. Students are welcome to submit an abstract and attend the conference at reduced rates. Students who submit and present an accepted abstract will be eligible to compete for cash awards, and travel assistance funding. Contact for more information on student rates.


For more information on the meeting and how to submit an abstract, go to the ASGSR Web site at

ASGSR was founded in 1984 to foster research, education and professional development in the multi-disciplinary field of gravitational and space research. ASGSR brings together a diverse group of scientists and engineers to encourage an exchange of ideas bridging basic and applied biological and physical science research and technology in space and gravitational sciences. The members represent academia, government and industry interests bonded by a common issue – how living organisms and physical systems respond to gravity. ASGSR is committed to training the next generation of scientists and engineers. Go to to find out more information about joining the society as an individual, student or organizational member.
