The aim of the symposium is to stimulate interactions among researchers and industries active in the area pertinent to nano-satellite development and applications. The topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

I. Innovative System Design and Operations
The newest developments in system modeling, analysis, theory, and tools to assist in the design and operation of nano-satellite systems with greater capability.

II. Launch Opportunities and Methods
Near-term scheduled launches and future methods to provide fast, frequent, flexible, and affordable access to space for nano-satellites.

III. Advanced Technologies, Subsystems, and Sensors
Advances in micro-electromechanical systems, radio frequency technology, optics, sensors and interface control systems designed and built specifically for use on nano-satellites.

IV. Existing Missions and Lessons Learned
Summaries of nano-satellite missions flown over the last few years and key lessons learned with an emphasis on how they apply to the nano-satellite missions in particular.

V. Novel Future Mission Concepts and Payloads
New and innovative mission concepts, technologies, and instruments designed specifically for nano-satellites pioneering the future in space exploration and scientific discovery.
