Preliminary Program

Prior to Day 1 – Monday, November 7

Registration (Foyer)

Lunar Commerce Portfolio Launch

Want to be part of Moon business?

In future, not too long from now, it is expected that there will be business opportunities on the Moon. A wide variety of businesses. Some of them not even needing any prior space experience. For instance, how would you like to own the first bar on the Moon?
How to join in, and become part of the value chain? You need to get access to the Lunar Commerce Portfolio, the definitive authority source for lunar commerce opportunities.

This has taken 2 years to compile, and is about to be launched, and made available for free, with an associated model, at the Moon Village Association’s Workshop and Symposium, in Los Angeles, California on 9th November, 2022.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Call for Papers

The International Program Committee (IPC) of the 6th Global Moon Village Association Workshop & Symposium (MVA WS&S 2022) is pleased to invite all interested authors to participate in its 2½-day hybrid event dedicated to the sustainable extension of human presence to Earth’s Moon.

The program will comprise several important elements, including discussions of the foundational steps during the next two decades necessary to establishing permanent human presence and activity on the Moon. There will be specific invited topics, of course; however, we wish to invite multi-disciplinary contributions on building blocks for the future development of the Moon as a sustainable ecosystem based on the integration of diverse capabilities and infrastructures and aiming to generate near-zero waste from those activities.

Open Abstract Submition is now closed.
