Following up its successful 2014 and 2016 editions held in Brasilia and Florianopolis, respectively, the 3rd IAA-LACW will keep the focus on topics related to CubeSat technology, providing a forum for scientists and engineers to discuss their achievements and cutting edge findings. Considering the increasing interest in CubeSat activities, and the recent successful Cubesat missions in Latin America, the International Academy of Astronautics is organizing in 2018 a workshop where participants from industry and academia will have the opportunity to share their professional knowledge, enlarging their networks in the subject. Some of the most outstanding professionals in CubeSat missions and applications will attend the workshop giving special talks and lectures.
The city of Ubatuba, located in the state of Sao Paulo, is a trend summer destination. With a population of around 90,000 people, the city is known for having a very high quality of life.
Ubatuba is a home to the Ubatuba-Sat initiative. During the symposium, the temperature is expected to be in the range between 25 °C and 35 °C (77 °F and 95 °F).
