The "AstroNet-II International Final Conference" is one of the last milestones of the Marie-Curie Research Training Network on Astrodynamics "AstroNet-II", that has been funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme.
Since January 2012, 17 young scientists have been involved in the network, working on astrodynamic problems related to: trajectory design and control, attitude control, structural flexibility of spacecraft and formation flying.
Now, when the network is coming to its end, it is time to communicate to an international specialised audience the work that has been carried out during these four years. Together with the presentations of the recruited fellows, we will have the opportunity to hear about the work of other scientists in the field from all over the world, as well as a number of invited talks delivered by relevant people in Astrodynamics.
The meeting will be in Tossa de Mar, an ancient fishermen's village located half way between the city of Barcelona and the French border. This small village became an emblematic tourist destination after the stay -during the spring of 1950- of Ava Gardner for the recording of the movie "Pandora and the Flying Dutchman". Still now, the village of Tossa remembers this event with a statue of "Pandora".
We are currently negotiating with Springer the publication of the book of Proceedings of the Conference.
