Following up its successful 2014 edition held in Brasilia, the 2nd 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, IAA, Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC) and University of Brasilia (UnB) are organizing in 2016 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 Florianopolis, a.k.a. the magic island, is located mainly on the island of Santa Catarina. Florianopolis has also a continental part and surrounding small islands. With a population of around 500,000 people, the city is known for having a very high quality of life. The island is a delicious slice of paradise with over 520 km2 (200 sq mi) of green hills, blue lagoons and 42 white sand beaches. The fishing boats, the lace makers, the folklore, the cuisine and the colonial architecture contribute to tourism. The economy of Florianopolis is heavily based on information technology, tourism and services.
Florianopolis is a home to the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), one of the largest in Brazil, with over 34,500 students. During the symposium, the temperature is expected to be in the range between 22 °C and 30 °C (71.6 °F and 86 °F).
