GLIC 2015 is co-organized by the IAF, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology. The conference venue will be the famous Munich Residence Palace.
The conference is the latest in the IAF’s highly successful thematic “Global Series”, which began with the Global Lunar Conference (GLUC) in 2010 (Beijing, China), followed by the Global Exploration Conference (GLEX) in 2012 (Washington, US), and the Global Space Applications Conference (GLAC) in 2014 (Paris, France).
