Call for International Workshop on Integrated Space and Onboard Networks(ISON)

Aims & Scope

With the rapid development of onboard avionics technology, there are increasing
requirements for intelligentization and internetworking of spacecrafts. The integrated space
and onboard networking technology provides one of the most important foundation to enable
cooperation not only among intelligent nodes inside a spacecraft but also among
The International Workshop on Integrated Space and Onboard Networks(ISON) aims to
discuss challenges, opportunities, and solutions in spacecraft onboard interface
services(SOIS), space link services(SLS), space internetworking services(SIS) and related
system implementations. The workshop plans to focus on the latest advances in theories,
methods, and practices in this interdisciplinary research. All submissions on the SOIS, SLS,
SIS, onboard software design, and on board wireless communications are welcome. The
intention of the workshop is to bring together researchers, industry practitioners, and
individuals working on the related areas to share their new ideas, latest findings, and state-
of-the-art results.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
● [Distributed spacecraft avionics systems]
● [Spacecraft onboard interfaces services]
● [Space link services]
● [Space internetworking services]
● [Delay tolerant networks]
● [Onboard wireless communications]
● [Onboard high speed data bus]
● [Spacecraft electronic data sheet]
● [Information flow design and simulation of space and onboard network]
● [Model based onboard software design]
● [AI in space]
