Legnano, Italy - Sep 28, 2007 - Event: 58th International Astronautical Congress
Paper Title: "Cost Reduction and Efficiency Improvements streamlining the Design Process of a Space Mission via STARMAD (Space Tool for Advanced & Rapid Mission Analysis & Design)".

The 58th International Astronautical Congress has been organised by the International Astronautical Federation in cooperation with the International Academy of Astronautics and the International Institute of Space Law.
Local hosts and co-organisers, the Astronautical Society of India and the Indian Space Research Organisation have selected a very fitting theme for the Congress:

"Touching Humanity: Space for improving the quality of life"

This theme focused on the growing use of space to improve the lives of humankind, providing also an opportunity to discuss the many robotic and human space exploration activities that expand our knowledge of the universe and inspire our citizens.

The 58th Congress featured both the traditional oral lecture sessions as well as an enhanced programme of interactive (poster) presentation sessions.
There were a series of plenary events and highlight lectures that focus on key topics of interest to the global space community.
Congress was also commemorating the 50th anniversary of the launch of the first artificial satellite, the 40th anniversary of the Outer Space Treaty and the 50th anniversary of the International Geophysical Year.
