About the event

The Space Week Nordeste 2023 is an event aimed at all those interested in technologies and advances in the space science area. The event intends to promote the exchange of knowledge between regional, national, and international institutions, contributing to the aerospace industry's outreach and development, in addition to human resources training.

Where

Fortaleza - CE - Brazil

When

Monday to Sunday
14-20 August 2023

The Space Week Nordeste 2023 will be an event that will gather students, researchers, industry members, and curious people about aerospace science and technology in only one place – the city of Fortaleza, Ceará. During Space Week Nordeste 2023, scientists will present the results of their developing projects and exhibit what is most modern within the space science area.

Some of the topics that will be covered during Space Week Nordeste 2023:

  • Earth observation for the sustainable development goals;
  • Space-based weather and climate extreme events monitoring;
  • New Space: Disruptive Space technologies and innovations;
  • Deep Space Missions;
  • Air and Aerospace Economics;
  • Remote water monitoring - Space hydrology - The SWOT (Surface Water and Ocean Topography) mission

In addition to the scientific program of the event, there will also be activities aimed at the non-scientific community, in which children, youth, adults, and families will be able to learn more about the space and its particularities. Activities open to the general public will include a rocket launch, satellite model exhibitions, a space photo gallery, and many more!

More information about the event, such as registration opening, submission of abstracts, topics of scientific sessions, registration for mini courses, and activities will be available soon. Stay tuned for news!
