For what concerns publications
Some of you indicated that they fear that having a paper presented at the conference and included in the proceedings with a DOI will prevent them from submitting the paper to a Peer Reviewed Journal. This is clearly wrong: there is a clear distinction between a “Proceeding” and a “Publication” where you have to go through a tough Peer Reviewing process, anonymous, with reasonable chances to be rejected. Such Journals ask for “original” material never published before, and precisely a Proceeding is not a Publication, so there is no problem.
For your information, this is the standard process with any large congress: for instance, Acta Astronautica publishes every year hundreds of papers coming from the proceedings of the International Astronautical Congress IAC; same with the JSSE publications coming from IAASS congress, the two CEAS Journals with papers presented at the AEC conference, or of course the AIAA peer reviewed publications.
You are invited to submit a 500-word abstract until March 15th, 2022: Deadline to submit or modify an existing submission.
Important: If you had submitted a contribution earlier, you have the possibility to modify your text, update the file, add co-authors and/or submit additional contributions.

The questions of intellectual property concern the only responsibility of the submitter.
