Welcome to the
Electric Rocket Propulsion Society's Website!
The 33rd International Electric Propulsion Conference (IEPC) will be held October 6th to 10th, 2013 at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. It is organized under the sponsorship of the Electric Rocket Propulsion Society and partnership of Aerojet. IEPC is held approximately every 18 months and alternates between locations in the United States and overseas. It is the premier venue for the international community involved in the field of electric propulsion to meet and discuss latest research.
IEPC2013 - Abstract Submission Now OpenAbstract submission is now open for the 33rd International Electric Propulsion Conference (IEPC) which will be held in at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. from the 6th to the 10th of October 2013. IEPC is a bi-annual international conference with topics encompassing all aspects of electric propulsion. The conference is the premier world-wide venue for researchers in the field of electric propulsion to meet and present the latest research findings.
The 2013 IEPC will take place at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C., United States. The George Washington University is an ideal conference venue, with easy airline access, and only a short walk from the White House, the United States Capitol, and the National Mall, which is home to many museums, including the world-famous Air and Space Museum. The George Washington University is also the home of the Micropropulsion and Nanotechnology Lab, specializing in development of plasma thrusters for microsatellites. In addition, the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, home to many of NASA’s scientific satellite programs, is located a short car drive away from the campus.
The conference will consist of multiple parallel sessions on the following topics:
- Hall Thrusters
- Ion Thrusters
- Field Emission and Colloid Thrusters
- MPD Thrusters
- Pulsed Plasma Thrusters
- Other electrothermal, electromagnetic or electrostatic thruster concepts
- Innovative or advanced electric propulsion concepts
- Cathode and other component and materials technologies
- EP propellant feed systems
- Power and power processing for EP systems
- Fundamental studies
- Analytical Modeling
- Numerical simulations
- Laboratory and Space Testing
- Lifetime Characterization
- Mission Analysis
- Systems Analysis
- In-flight experience
Conference Dates: 6-10 October, 2013, The George Washington University, Washington, D.C., USA
Abstract Deadline: May 6th, 2013
Author Notification: June 15th, 2013
