A two-day workshop on space solar power (SSP) will be held on August 8-9, 2013, at Michican Technological University, Houghton, Michigan. Presentations and keynotes will be selected from researchers, program managers, industry representatives, and academics, interspersed with topical working group discussions. The workshop aims to compare different SSP technologies, promoting discussion of these technologies, and to develop prize competition concepts resulting in significant advances in SSP systems and technologies. Participants will discuss how the efforts of existing national and international bodies might be complemented or enhanced. These working group discussions will be summarized and action items disseminated at the end of workshop. Registration is $250 before June 30 and $300 thereafter. Co-sponsored by the Space Solar Power Institute and Upper Peninsula Power Company.
