10/7/2013: Due to unavailibility of the panel members because of the government shutdown, the Tuesday panel on Policy and Budgets has been cancelled. We will instead start Tuesday at 9am with the talk by Prof. Nat Fish, which was originally scheduled for 8am.

10/6/2013: Conference attendees, please join us this evening for the Welcome Reception in the City View Room, 1957 E Street NW. More information available here. Uploaded papers are now also available for download from the Agenda page.

10/4/2013, Government Shutdown Impact: As you are aware, the United States government still remains closed. This impacts IEPC 2013 in two main ways. First, the original Gala Dinner location, the Smithsonian Air and Space museum is closed. We have now secured an alternate location in case the government stays closed past Tuesday: the Washington D.C. Marriott located few blocks from GWU. Gen. Charles Bolden is still scheduled to keyonote. Secondly, number of planned conference attendees from NASA Glenn, Marshall, and Goddard, as well as the Aerospace Corporation will not be able to travel. This will likely result in an increased number of papers without available presenters. We will relax the "no podium, no paper" rules for authors unable to present because of the shutdown by including their papers in the proceedings. NASA JPL participation is not affected by the shutdown.
