3rd European Optimisation in Space Engineering (OSE3) workshop

17th September 2015 - 18th September 2015

3rd European Optimisation in Space Engineering (OSE3) workshop that will take place on 17-18 September at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. This workshop is jointly organised by the Turing Gateway to Mathematics (TGM), the University of Southampton, the University of Birmingham, the European Space Agency (ESA), Airbus Defence and Space, the University of Strathclyde and the University of Bremen. See this link for further information on the OSE initiative. Background OSE aims to provide space companies, universities, research institutes and organisations with a forum of excellence in the area of optimisation in space engineering, which fits with the need for technology improvements and further research in this area. 2 previous workshops identified various problems such as interplanetary trajectory optimisation, optimal rendezvous guidance, descent & landing trajectories and guided entry and this 3rd workshop will explore these challenges and help to widen the sphere of expertise to a wider audience in Europe. Objectives and Programme Participants are invited to share their latest optimisation engineering problems, proposed solutions and mathematical results, to promote the creation and exchange of ideas and the identification of new trends and required developments. The structure for this workshop will include a number of talks with opportunities for open/facilitated discussion. It will also feature an optimisation challenge competition, where interested participants are invited to solve one or more of three space engineering optimisation problems. The challenges have been chosen because of their relevance to actual space missions: 1. Optimal area mapping for the Asteroid Impact Mission AIM, 2. Optimal trajectory for an active debris removal mission, 3. Optimal deployment strategy and constellation management (or if you prefer: Optimal deployment and management strategy for a satellite constellation). For more information about the event and to register, please see the website. A provisional programme will be available soon and participants are invited to express an interest in presenting a relevant paper at the event, as well as taking part in the challenge competition. Registration and Further Details Please see the webpage for details on the cost, how to register and booking your accommodation.]]>
