Please contact the LOC/SOC in case something is still unclear or missing on the website. The SOC/LOC is looking forward to welcoming each participant in Toulouse by the end of October in the best possible way, and the contribution of each participation is expected to organize a new successful conference in the KePASSA conference series.

FD on behalf of the SOC/LOC, 10th of September 2015


Following the continued interest of Space Agencies in providing forums for discussing the advances on orbit propagation and determination  for NEO and space debris, and as a natural continuation of the analogous meeting organized by IMCCE at Lille in 2011, by University of la Rioja at Logrono in 2014, Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES), IMCCE, INP-ENSEEIHT and University of la Rioja co-organize in 2015 a new KePASSA workshop in Toulouse, hosted by INP-ENSEEIHT in Toulouse downtown.


As in 2014 in Logrono, the workshop is concerned with the following TOPICS AND METHODS:
- Analytical and semi-analytical methods for long- and short-term propagation.
- High Earth Orbit and High Elliptical Orbit.
- Third body and time dependence in the analytical method.
- Resonances and chaos.
- Propagation of orbit uncertainties
- Regularized numerical integration.
- Lagrange planetary equations.
- Hamilton canonical equations.
- Special functions.
- Series expansions.
- Symbolic integration with software tools.
- Time series.
- Hybrid and statistical methods.
- Software packages for orbit propagation

Special sessions

Dedicated sessions will be devoted to specific topics that were identified last year in Logrono as very interesting ones to be talked about:
- Analytical and semi-analytical propagation methods
- Earth's space environments
- New generation of propagation methods (Taylor algebra)
- Propagation of uncertainties
- High precision propagation
-  A working group meeting in "orbit propagation comparisons" could be jointly organized, and a "reference orbit database" set-up.
