About the ISU
The International Space University develops the future leaders of the world space community by providing educational programs to students and space professionals in an international, intercultural, and interdisciplinary environment. ISU also serves as a neutral international forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas on challenging issues related to space and space applications.
One of the programs managed by ISU, in partnership with the University of South Australia, is the Southern Hemisphere Space Studies Program (SH-SSP). This is an intensive five-week program which takes place during January to February each year, providing the international, intercultural, and interdisciplinary ISU experience in a format and schedule suited to the Southern Hemisphere. The ISU Adelaide Conference takes place during SH-SSP, which enables the students to attend the conference. More information about the program can be found here.
