Abstract:
What: The 30th Annual International Space Development Conference (ISDC) is sponsored by the National Space Society and the Huntsville, Alabama L5 (HAL5) Society. This year's theme is "From the Ground Up… How Do We Get There?" which is a reference to NSS's ongoing local, regional, national, and international efforts to foster our growth as a spacefaring civilization. The conference programming - including summits, symposia, workshops, and networking opportunities - emphasizes the people, tools, and skills that humanity will need to expand civilization into space. ISDC brings together a diverse group of NASA officials, aerospace industry leaders and interested private citizens to engage in discussions about today's prevalent space issues to create synergy, stimulate innovation and overcome the obstacles that hinder human advancement off the Earth.

How: Media credentials are given to members of the working media whose attendance at ISDC 2011 may result in coverage, whether broadcast or print. A press room and media coordinator will be available. Requests for credentialing may be submitted using the Media Registration Form at ISDC.NSS.org/2011 or by sending an email to .

All sessions are open to the media unless otherwise indicated, as long as the proceedings are not disturbed. Press access to certain track programming is subject to review by the appropriate track leaders. Neither the National Space Society, nor the HAL5 Society, will be responsible for press access should requirements change.

Interviews may be conducted prior to the sessions at the discretion of the speakers, panelists or their staff. If at all possible, and to minimize last-minute confusion, all requests for interviews must be received and scheduled prior to the commencement of ISDC. Please email or call Debbie Cohen at 202.429.1600 with requests for access/scheduling.

Advanced media registration is strongly encouraged to enable appropriate review of each request by NSS staff and for registrants to provide supporting documentation for their request, if required for credentialing. Media registering on-site must bring documentation/qualifying materials to receive credentials. Non-registered media/press may experience a delay in admission to events if personnel are not immediately available to review documentation.
