Dear IAF Community,

Since its first edition in 1950, the IAC has been THE place for all space people to come together and discuss about the latest developments in space. In these challenging times, when physical meetings are near-impossible, the Federation, more than ever, is determined to play its unifying role for the space community. And this is why we have decided to organize the 71st International Astronautical Congress, IAC 2020, as a Cyberspace Edition and to offer it without registration fee, free of charge for a global community. This will allow us to also reach out to new communities and stakeholders that would normally not have the means and/or time to physically travel to an IAC.
The theme of the IAC 2020 – The CyberSpace Edition will be “IAF Connecting @ll Space People: virtually and for free, we will embrace resilience by being connected together.

OVERALL STRUCTURE

The IAC 2020 – The Cyberspace Edition’s structure and programme will be leaner and simpler than a regular IAC in line with its virtual format. The two and half days of the IAC 2020 will be revolving around specific themes:

o Monday – Opening/Agency Day
o Tuesday – Industry Day
o Wednesday – Diversity/Outreach Day

The programme is being consolidated these days, more info will be communicated in the following weeks.
For the time being, please note that authors whose abstracts have been selected by the IPC during the virtual IAF Spring Meetings in March will be asked to submit a full manuscript with a presentation and a recorded video file. All the materials that will be prepared and submitted for the Technical Programme including accepted abstracts, papers, presentations and videos will be published in the proceedings of the 71st IAC and made available to the participants with a password-restricted access.

We are extremely excited about this new chapter of the International Astronautical Congress and we look forward to build this first CyberSpace Edition with the support of you all. We are in this together! #cyberspaceiac2020

Dear Friends,

Please allow me to address you in my capacity of IAF President in this challenging period. I hope that you are safe and managing to work remotely in these difficult and complicated times. Though we look at the future with hope, it is hard to predict how the situation will unfold in the upcoming weeks and months.

I would like to let you know that the IAF is thinking of you. The Federation has been supporting the space community for more than 70 years, and we are here also now.

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has, inevitably, affected our planned activities for 2020, but the IAF remains flexible, innovative and resilient. We are currently working on devising new ways to keep you engaged and connected. Now, more than ever, we understand the importance of a strong supportive community and we are committed to ensure that you feel a part of it.

Earlier this month we had to announce the postponement of the GLEX in St. Petersburg and of the IAC in Dubai. However, after much reflection, we have decided that we still want our community to gather around a main event in 2020 and feel part of the great IAF “family”, as many of you call it.

I am therefore delighted to announce that we will be hosting an IAC 2020 in virtual format. The 71st International Astronautical Congress – The CyberSpace Edition #CYBERSPACEIAC2020 will take place in your homes and offices around the world during 12 – 14 October 2020. Please make sure to mark those dates in your calendar and stay tuned for additional details on the programme and logistics for the event in the upcoming weeks.

I am also pleased to inform you that the new dates for the 72nd International Astronautical Congress, IAC 2021 have been fixed. The IAC 2021 will take place in Dubai, U.A.E., from 25 – 29 October 2021. Please also mark these important dates in your calendar.

Furthermore, the IACs in Paris and Baku will be postponed accordingly. Exact details will be communicated in the coming weeks.

Despite the challenges we face due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I am confident that we can emerge from this crisis stronger than before and that we will continue to discover innovative and creative ideas on how to shape a global society with the help of space technologies for a bright future.

The IAF is nothing without its community; together we stand stronger and more resilient than ever. I look forward to tackling our future challenges together.

Warmest Regards,

Prof. Pascale Ehrenfreund
President
International Astronautical Federation (IAF)

On the second year of it´s beginning Demand a answer on the preliminary examination of Venezuela After this February 8, 2020, two years after the announcement of the beginning of the preliminary examination concerning the Venezuela case, by the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court -ICC-, on crimes against humanity that are systematically and widespread been committed in recent years and are still committed by the regime of Nicolás Maduro, a group of lawyers and human rights defenders require this international body an immediate response. The document consigned on Wednesday, February 20 before the ICC, was signed by the former president of the United Nations Security Council, Diego Arria; the former president of the Inter-American Federation of Lawyers, Rafael Veloz; the retired deputy of the National Assembly and president of El Amparo Foundation, Walter Márquez; the president of the Democratic Platform of Venezuelans in Spain, William Cárdenas Rubio; the former ambassador of Panama in India, Alejandro Garrido; the former General Director of the Attorney´s General Office of Venezuela, Zair Mundaray; the experienced lawyer in International Criminal Courts of the University of Washington, Carlos Ramírez López; the president emeritus of the Federation of the Bar Association of Venezuela, Omar Estacio; the president of the REDES Foundation, Javier Tarazona; the former senator of the Congress of Venezuela, Edgar Florez; also by Anacelita Hernández, General Secretary of El Amparo Foundation; by Jesús Berro, academic research coordinator of the Bar Association of Tachira; Juan Manuel Guevara, Director of International Relations of El Amparo International Foundation; by Francisco Sánchez, International lawyer of the Center for Border Studies and Integration of the University of Los Andes -ULA- Táchira and by Gustavo Rodríguez, President of the Bar Association of Litigation Lawyers of Colombia, in North Santander. After recounting the actions undertaken by the European parliament, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, by the Secretary General of the Organization of American States -OAS-, by the Foreign Ministers of Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, Peru and Canada; by the Lima Group, by the UN Human Rights Council, among others, demanding responses to human rights violations and the execution of crimes against humanity in Venezuela, the signatories made six warnings and considerations, recalling that on December 5 2019, in its annual report to the Assembly of States Parties, the ICC prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda said that she hoped to finalize the analysis of the situation in Venezuela at the beginning of the current year. The requests The retired deputy of the Venezuelan parliament, Walter Márquez, promoter of the document, with the deputy of the National Assembly Rafael Veloz, said that considering that the International Criminal Court, according to the Rome Statute, was created not only to sanction the international crimes under its jurisdiction, but to prevent them, they requested the States parties of this statute, especially those who are members of the European Union and the OAS to join the complaint filed on September 26, 2018 by six member states before the ICC prosecutor's office, for crimes against humanity in order to initiate a formal investigation immediately. Since a reasonable time has elapsed to decide, they demand an immediate decision on the preliminary examination and the immediate start of the investigation of crimes against humanity in Venezuela, to avoid and prevent more facts that aggravate the crisis, as there is an unjustified delay in the initiation, procedure or resolution of more than 100 requests of investigation before the ICC, incurring a serious fault or serious breach of the functions of the prosecutor Bensouda, in accordance with rule 24 of the Court's Rules of Procedure and Evidence. On the other hand, the attorney William Cárdenas Rubio said that in this regard they demand that prosecutor Fatou Bensouda initiates the investigation of crimes against humanity committed in Venezuela or inhibit from continuing to know those causes, since she has more than 15 years without deciding and has knowledge of the situation since 2004 when she was deputy prosecutor, and from 2012 as a prosecutor. The signatories of the document support the complaint made by Walter Márquez against the Prosecutor of the ICC for gross negligence and breach of her duties, requesting her separation from office because they consider that she has delayed a lot to act while the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela is deepening. They urged the contries parties, complainants before the ICC, to request an immediate action by the prosecutor, in accordance with article 54.1.a of the Rome Statute, to take appropriate measures to ensure the effectiveness of the investigation and prosecution of crimes. Finally, they invite the countries that are members of the Assembly of States Parties, especially Colombia and Ecuador as members of the Rome Statute, to request that independent supervision mechanisms will be exercised on the actions of the ICC Prosecutor.
