11th International Workshop on Satellite Constellations & Formation Flying

Milano, June 7-10, 2022

The 11th “International Workshop on Satellite Constellations & Formation Flying” (IWSCFF 2022), organized by Prof. Michèle Lavagna,  will take place in June 7-10, 2022 at Politecnico di Milano, Campus Bovisa, Milano, Italy.

IWSCFF 2022 is a conference organized under the auspices of the International Astronautical Federation (IAF).
