4th UNISEC Space Takumi Conference
for Practical Study of Problem Finding and Solving in Space Systems
The Space Takumi Conference aims to recognize the knowledge and experience, which are acquired through practical engineering projects for research, development, and the application of space systems and components, as general and universal academic accomplishments. This recognition is made by evaluating ideas with "academic" value and by developing new systems engineering, design theories, methodologies, reliability engineering, and educational methods.
The Conference deals with various problems such as the following: "What is the essence of a space system?" "What kinds of rapid and effective development processes exist that utilize integration technology? How could such a process be implemented in practice?" "How is such a system tested?" "How are human resources cultivated?"
The coming 4th UNISEC Space Takumi Conference provides an opportunity to present your research paper. After the discussion at the conference, you are also able to submit your paper to the UNISEC Space Takumi Journal
