This is a message sent on behalf of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.   An ad hoc committee under the auspices of the National Research Council will review the current state of the scientific potential and technological promise of CubeSats.

The Committee on Achieving Science Goals with CubeSats is hosting a community symposium on September 2-3 at the Beckman Center in Irvine, CA, to explore the feasibility of obtaining high-priority science data using CubeSats. The symposium will feature a series of panel discussions among scientists and technologists in the areas of Earth science, solar and space physics (heliophysics), planetary science, astronomy and astrophysics, as well as technology that enables CubeSats, technology development enabled by CubeSats, and industry capabilities. The panels will explore science goals, how these goals could be achieved using CubeSats, and the potential for new science that is enabled by CubeSats. These discussions will be framed by current CubeSat technological capabilities and those anticipated in the near future. 

The Committee is also soliciting posters as critical inputs to the symposium that will be displayed at a poster session. Posters should be targeted to one or more of the following: current CubeSat missions and science results, CubeSat mission concepts, or technology that enables CubeSat science missions. Of particular interest are posters concerning CubeSat-enabled microgravity science.
